The worst experience of my recent visit to Rome was the green hop on hop off bus. Avoid this line at all costs. My fellow travelers and I bought tickets outside the Vatican museum. The ticket seller told us where to pick up the bus....More

Considering Rome trafic jam, you spend much time to travel with this kind of bus. I bought three days thicket but I couldn’t use that well. I suggest to book a hotel in historical zone and walk to visit historical places.

I like to do this whenever I visit a new city, and most of the larger metropolitan cities, both in the US and in Europe, have these Hop On/Hop Off tours. Take one of these tours when you first arrive in a new city. It...More

The tour traverse around the city but the congested streets make it boring with frequent long pauses. There are occasional narrations. We ended up getting off and saw more walking around and could spend additional time at each site. If you like to walk save...More

Ancient Rome can only be accessed on foot. The bus is only convenient if you have time, and kids or seniors. Otherwise walk and use public trasportation when needed. Staff were not very friendly. We had an old lady with a carry-on and 2 kids....More

All of these companies are the same when it comes to price, stop locations and audio but this one offers a night but in your 24 hour ticket. So we went for this, knowing the buses are every 20/30 minutes but taking the option for...More

What a waste of money. 64 euro for two days. The whole city is walkable, save your money. The busses have no air conditioning and no air movement you can die!!! What a waste it was.

If you desire a Hop On/Hop Off experience, then this is probably as good as any other bus. In torrential rain, we hopped on and sat on top where half of the bus was covered protecting us from rain, or sunshine. On a previous trip,...More

Piazza Venezia / Ancient City
If all roads lead to Rome, then they all end here.
Piazza Venezia and the Ancient City are the very
epicenter of the Eternal City. Within a 360-degree
turn, Roman history unrolls in front of you, from its
ancient beginnings to its 21st century
transformations. Whether it’s those historical
playgrounds known as the Roman and Imperial Forums, or
the side-street shops, trattorie, and churches, this
