The CityRoma bus is one of the many hop on hop off buses in Rome. I usually look up reviews on Trip Advisor before booking, but this time I did not. I really should have. This bus was uncomfortable, most of the audio plugs did...More

My husband and I booked our tour for the Catacombs by phone with Isango a couple of months ago. Isango is a third party tour operator that works with local Rome tour operators. We printed out our itinerary, which stated CONFIRMED on both our tickets...More

It actually was really bad. Almost no audio outlets worked on the open part. Not much info, and most importantly - it wasn't synced! Hopeless. Any of the other buses have to be better.

Do not take this bus. We waited 45 minutes for our bus while the other bus lines came and went several times. The audio is not synced so you just feel confused the entire time about the attractions you see. The company will not honor...More

Audio for the tour didn’t work for anyone. Bus pickups are unreliable. Map of pickup spots is completely wrong, leaving you waiting and never being picked up. Completely worthless. Please avoid!

It is hard to hear the guide. The text does not follow the route and there was mostly music playing. Stops are not as indicated. The only upside is shelter from the rain.

This was the worst. Bus was old, headphone jacks poor quality and hard to hear and understand. Did not make all the stops indicated. The main reason we took this bus was because they supposedly stopped near the Vatican. They did not. Waited about an...More

The absolute worst tour experience ever. The staff seems to be family run and told us one lie after the other. The told us we would stop at 10 sites, and actually only stopped at 5. The audio guide was a joke. We caught the...More

Old school vibe from the very beginning is the only
way to describe the Esquilino neighbourhood. The
Esquilino takes pride in being one of the oldest areas
in Rome for its key location on one of the city’s
famous seven hills. From an ancient neighbourhood to
its modern incarnation as a multicultural hub,
Esquilino always has something going on—polyglot
