Overview

Cover more of Rome in less time on a hop-on hop-off bus tour, a great way for independent travelers to see the city. Tailor your sightseeing by hopping off at any stop that interests you, including highlights such as the Colosseum, the Pantheon, Circus Maximus, and Vatican City. While on board the bus, listen to commentary about the sights you pass for crucial context. Choose between the Classic, Premium, or Deluxe ticket to suit your budget and schedule.

What to Expect

Make your way to any one of the stops, voucher in hand, to step on board the bus. When booking, you'll choose a 24- or 48-hour Classic, Premium, or Deluxe ticket, which allows for any vacation itinerary or budget. This comprehensive tour of Rome lets you cover all of the highlights in much less time than a self-guided exploration or combination of other tours would.

Each ticket option includes four guided walking tours, and the Deluxe ticket includes a route past the Catacombs of San Sebastiano. Tours run between 9am and 5pm, and you can start and end at any stop of your choosing. Plan to allow at least 1.5 hours for the full tour, plus more time if you plan on hopping off and exploring individual sights.

On board the bus, slip on the headphones to listen to audio commentary about the stops. Learn about Rome's ancient history and its evolution into a modern, thriving city. The bus' eight stops are centered around highlights such as Vatican City, the Spanish Steps, the Trevi Fountain, the Roman forum, the Pantheon, and the Colosseum.

Loved our 3 days on Big Bus hop on/off. Highlight for me was the night tour guided by the lovely Laura. Bus driver very kindly stopped the bus at key sights so we could take photos. Rug up for winter but so worthwhile.More

The Colosseum tour is not worth it. The self guided tour was much better. If you get the when it opens there are no lines and you have great access! The Vatican tour was amazing. Well worth it!
