great way to see Rome -- avoid public transit and pick pockets! This is safe and efficient. When we wanted to go elsewhere we used UBER Black. I have done this hop on hop off in many European cities and am never disappointed.

I truly enjoyed my. Rome trip. The MSC Cruise Ship was phenomenal, with all
kinds of activities. There was a first class beauty shop on board. My room was very nice with a bacony which allowed me to look out at the scenary. The tours were very interesting and I was able to take many pictures of historical places in Rome. Not only was I able to take pictures in Rome, but Spain, France and other beautiful places along the Mediterranean. Thank you for a wonderful experience.

The bus was great. We met the bus at the side of the Colusemum where all the other buses pick up visitors and sight seeers. The bus stopped at the Vatican and the castle next to it. We came close to the Spanish Steps and walked a few minutes to reach the steps from the bus drop off point. One only has to look at the hop off bus route to see what a fantastic deal it was. Other countries in Europe also offer the hop on bus tours.

Using the Hop-On, Hop-Off bus was great as we had only one day to visit Rome. This allowed us to make the most of our time. It was at times a nice relief to enter the bus and get away from the crowds and just enjoy viewing sites from the top of the bus. The information about finding the first stop on arrival at Termini Station was not very clear, however we were able to call the contact number on our confirmation and they directed us to the correct location.
