Hop-On Hop-Off River Cruise
The special open-air boats that operate hop-on hop-off tours along the Tiber River board at four places in Rome - Castel Sant’Angelo, Tiber Island (Isola Tiberina), Ponte Sisto or Ponte Cavour. After you board, enjoying the views of Rome as you drift down the river, relax and listen to the recorded audio explaining what you’re seeing.

Your 24-hour ticket allows you to get off the boat at any stop you like in order to explore, getting back on a later boat to continue your cruise. Hop off the boat at Tiber Island for a short walk to sights like the Colosseum and Roman Forum, or at Castel Sant’Angelo to see St. Peter’s Basilica and the rest of Vatican City.

If you stay on board the boat for an entire loop, the trip lasts roughly one hour. Boats arrive every half-hour at each stop.

Hop-On Hop-Off River and Bus
For an even more comprehensive look at the highlights of Rome, upgrade to combine a Tiber River cruise with a 24-hour hop-on hop-off bus ticket. Enjoy the sights and sounds of Rome from the top of an open-air double-decker bus as you travel between the city’s most popular attractions.

Join the bus tour at one of eight stops, getting off at any other stop to explore on foot or visit nearby sights. Disembark at the Trevi Fountain to toss in a coin that ensures a return trip to Rome, or at Piazza Venezia to take the elevator to the top of the Vittoriano monument for more excellent city views.

If you stay on board the bus for an entire loop, the trip lasts roughly 1.5 hours. Buses arrive every 15 minutes at each stop.

Lots of traffic. Hard to find sites when getting off the bus. Not all seats had working audio terminals.

The views from the boat are absolutely magnificent! Take the late afternoon cruise to get sunset photos and sit at the top of the boat for the best view. You can't hear the tour information at the top, but with those views it doesn't matter!

Very convenient way to move about the city. Wish they had head sets rather than loudspeaker for those who have hearing issues.

Great way to get the lay of the city!

A fun start to our trip! We did this the first day to get an overview of the city. Would recommend this to all ages!

Not the best boat tour we have been on, only travelled a short distance on plastic patio chairs with very little commentary and because of the high walls there was not actually that much to see. A bit disappointing!

This tour very disappointing. It is billed as a 4 stop hop on. It travelled 2 stops - went to an obscure little stop then turned around to return to first stop. When asked what's up - shrug and a 'this is the way it is'. Also, not unusual for Italian then English but English too brief - too late

Not a lot t see. The commentary was good. We were able to rest our feet though after a long walk through the city.

This tour was very disappointing. The boat was going up and down within 500 yards. You could not see much .
I feel it was a waste of money.
