Have used this service in many other cities we have visited. Always have found this to be good value for money and an excellent way to get ones bearings if first time visitors. Only had 3 full days in Rome this time and purchased 48hour tickets. Was in Rome 2 1/2 years ago and the route has changed somewhat as the bus does not drive towards and around St Peter's anymore, probably due to high levels of traffic, which is a pity as good photo shots of St Peter's are missed. Staff very helpful. Highly recommended.

We scheduled the Hop-on Hop-Off tour for two days while we were in Rome. We used it to get our bearings of the city, and in place of a taxi. It was a great way to see the city, and go from place to place.

As always a great way to travel and see the city, no matter what country or city you go into, I always suggest to ride around first on the top if possible to get those beautiful pictures and then decide what you really want to see and make the best use of your time if it is a short stay
