Loved the Hop-on Hop off bus. Stayed on the whole and then got off at various stops to walk and sightsee. Especially great for someone who has limited time to tour the city.

Great way to see Rome. You can use Hop-on Hop-off instead of getting a taxi or a bus to go to to the airport.

This tour is a blast, from merely a sightseeing perspective. It takes you past ALL the major attractions in Rome and you can't take pictures fast enough, there is so much to take in. My suggestion is this...start as early as possible in the morning and take the bus all the way around the tour from beginning to end marking on your map the things you wish to see. This will give you the opportunity to get your bearings and take the anxiety out of not knowing where you are. The whole round trip usual takes an hour and a half to 2 hours. Then start the tour again and get off and on in all the places you want to see. The next day you can get right to seeing the things you didn't get to the day before. This is a super convenient and affordable way to get the whole family around...and it is especially fun in Rome. They give you headphones so everybody can listen to the guided tour of all the attractions as you pass by them. It is very informative. I highly recommend the Hop-on Hop-off Buses.

We made our reservations on line and we joined at the closest stop to our hotel, it was very easy and the earplugs were easy to understand and very informative. We will do this again on our next visit.

So much to see in one day but this has to be the best way of doing it. We should have prepared ourselves better though as it was a lot of information to take in. We would definitely go on the same tour if back in Rome.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2016

Great guides and a very easy way to navigate Rome and get ideas of where to go. Recommended for first timers for certain!
