HOP-ON HOP-OFF TOUR BUS IN ROME: TICKETS FOR THE BEST TOURS
Rome is a must-visit destination for all lovers of art, history and even good food. The first metropolis of the West, it is still the city with the highest density and the greatest number of monuments; it would seem almost impossible to visit them all, also considering that it is the fifth largest city in Europe. But there is no shortage of ways not to miss the most important sights: specially designed walking itineraries, boat tours for an alternative viewpoint, and convenient hop-on hop-off tourist buses to get around Rome with ease.

Tour of Rome by open-top bus: tickets for a classic itinerary
Once in the capital, walking through its streets is certainly fascinating and gives the measure of how much the city is the result of artistic and architectural evidence from different eras. A much more comfortable alternative, however, is to book a tour of Rome by open-top bus, to be enchanted by the Roman Forum or the Colosseum from a different perspective. Panoramic buses combine the comfort of travelling seated with the experience of enjoying the city (and holidays) at your own pace.
The ticket for Hop-on Hop-off Bus Tours Rome can be made from your smartphone, without the need to print it out. There are various types of tickets, which differ in terms of duration:
- 24 hours
- 48 hours
- 72 hours
Once the ticket is activated, it is possible to use the service for the duration of your choice; with the hop-on hop-off mode, passengers can hop on and off according to the monuments they want to visit or linger over. The route, in fact, touches the most important historical-artistic points, passing by:
- Santa Maria Maggiore
- the Colosseum
- the Circus Maximus
- Piazza Venezia
- Piazza di Spagna
- Piazza Barberini
From these stops it is then possible to reach other attractions, such as the Trevi Fountain or the Vatican.
The panoramic bus experience allows you to see Rome’s main monuments and sites à vol d’oiseau: the complete tour, without getting off, lasts 1 hour and 40 minutes and the service is non-stop, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Access is facilitated for people with mobility difficulties and a paper map and an audio guide in eight languages are provided on board to accompany the tourist along the route.
Visiting Christian Rome by panoramic bus
Rome is the only city in the world within which there is an entire state: Vatican City. Many people come here, therefore, for religious reasons, and pilgrims mix with tourists; many of the latter, however, do not want to miss the opportunity to visit such a unique enclave of culture and spirituality. Again, this can be done comfortably by boarding an open-top bus.
The modalities for visiting Christian Rome by bus are similar to those of the classic Rome tour: the service is always hop-on hop-off with audio guide and the tour includes stops such as Castel Sant’Angelo, San Giovanni in Laterano and the Vatican itself.
Tickets can last 24, 48 and 72 hours, and the tours are convenient because they run continuously between 9am and 6pm, with stops every 20 minutes.
Hop-on hop-off bus and aperitif on a boat on the Tiber
If you prefer a bit of romance to spirituality, the option that combines the hop-on hop-off bus with an aperitif on a boat on the Tiber may be just the right one. Rome is considered one of the most romantic cities and seeing it from the water, with a glass of wine in hand, can certainly give a different flavour to the view.
In addition to the ticket for the bus tour of Rome, with all the comforts of the case, there is a real cruise on the Tiber with an aperitif, between Castel Sant’Angelo and the Tiber Island. To embark, simply show up fifteen minutes before the departure time and an identity document.
The historic centre of Rome is teeming with things to see and do, therefore, with itineraries that make you appreciate both the remains of Roman civilisation and examples of modern and contemporary art.
