What You Can Expect

Rome Hop-On Hop-Off Sightseeing Tour

Admire the sights of Piazza Venezia on your hop-on hop-off tour of Rome

Rome serves up more sights than many capital cities put together. Thanks to its illustrious past, Italy’s capital bursts with art and architectural masterpieces, from well-preserved Roman relics to Baroque piazzas. One of the best ways to explore is on a hop-on hop-off sightseeing bus that saves the hassle of making your own way around the sights.

With your ticket, simply step aboard and let the sights effortlessly unfold, hopping on and off as you wish at any of the eight stops. Marvel at the Colosseum, the scene of bloody Roman-era gladiator battles, and check out the Piazza Venezia, home to the grandiose Vittorio Emanuele II Monument. Or, hop off near the Trevi Fountain to toss a coin into its waters, or at the Vatican City stop to see St Peter’s Basilica.

Hop on and off at the stops anytime you wish, or stay aboard for an entire loop (roughly 1.5-2 hours), seeing the sights as you listen to the informative onboard audio commentary. Plus, with free WiFi on board, you're free to blog, tweet and upload and share photos along the way.

48-hour Ticket Including Skip-the-Line Entrance to the Colosseum, Roman Forum and Palatine Hill
Upgrade your 48-hour ticket to include skip-the-line entrance to three of Rome's showpiece antiquities: the Colosseum, Roman Forum and Palatine Hill. Bypass the infamous long lines at the Colosseum and waltz inside to explore the first and second tier of this spectacular Roman arena, once the scene of bloody gladiatorial contests. Then, enjoy skip-the-line access to the nearby Roman Forum, with its crumbled temples, streets and pillars, and Palatine Hill, one of Rome's ancient Seven Hills.

48-hour Ticket Including Entrance to the Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel
Wonder at the glories of the Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel when you upgrade your 48-hour hop-on hop-off ticket to include entrance to these two Rome highlights. Visit the Vatican Museums to see its priceless artworks, tapestries and maps, and step inside the hallowed Sistine Chapel to behold its painted ceiling, Michelangelo’s masterpiece.

48-hour All-Inclusive Ticket Including Entrance to the Colosseum, Roman Forum, Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel
Why miss out on any of Rome’s great sights? Optimise your time in Italy's capital by upgrading your 48-hour hop-on hop-off ticket to include entrance to the city's four headline acts: skip-the-line entrance to the Colosseum, Roman Forum and Palatine Hill, plus admission to the Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel. It’s a great way to pack in the best of Rome in a short time.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

Great tour! A good tool to get the lay of the land and to use as transportation to the sites you want to see. Spent 3 days in Rome and used the bus multiple times.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

We bought the 48hour all inclusive skip the line ticket...Well Worth it!! We only had 3 days and this was the perfect way to see everything! Plus with the earphones and tapes we learned about the sights as well. We were there during the busy season, but there was always a bus whenever we went to the stops! And there was room even on the top tier which was our preference! Also saw lots of longs lines for the Coloseum and Sistene Chapel But with the Skip the Lines ticket we walked right in!!! Great way to go!!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

A perfect way to see the main sights of Rome in comfort and at any time of the day. The only improvement I'd suggest is that the buses run in opposite directions rather than clockwise only as it can make journey time (eg to Vatican City from Termini) longer than necessary

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

We took a 48 hour deal and used the two days to hop on and off as suited us. The bus stop was right outside our hotel, so what could be more suitable?

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

This worked really well. If you're not familiar with the city - maybe it's your first time visiting - the Hop/On and Hop/Off bus is a great way to see fabulous Rome. It also works well because you end up walking everywhere and it's just nice to sit for a bit.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

Good experience - no problems.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

Quite an amazing experience. Best way to get your bearings around Rome before plunging into the burgeoning mass of historical monuments, churches and restaurants. Highly recommended.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

Perfect way to tour the city especially for those who have problems with long walking. Buses were aplenty. If you missed one, the next one comes shortly after. The tour operator had staff spread all over the city to answer questions and provide directions. I highly recommend this tour.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

Excellent idea - 2 days is a must to have time to visit the places of interest. Open top section not recommended in the hot summer!!!
