You can also choose to add admission tickets to the Sistine Chapel, the Vatican Museums, Palatine Hill, the Roman Forum, and the Colosseum to your hop-on hop-off ticket, which saves time spent waiting in ticketing lines. Step on board the bus and choose a seat in the covered portion of the bus or the open deck up top.

Throw a coin into the Trevi Fountain for luck, or stretch your legs on a walk through Vatican City.

So crowded you can't even get on
Do not use this if you are in port on a cruise. It is so busy that you will spend most of your day waiting in lines

Take Pisa off and the day would have been a much better tour with a solid amount of time in the other two cities
Take Pisa off and you can have a much easier day with stunning places and a much eaiser time allowance in San Gimig

My main concern was that it states that the tour is around 120 min, but if you make a whole round it lasts less than an hour with long stops at some point.
Also, for such a historical city as Rome is, there is too much music instead of information loaded on the audio guide. Very pity and waste of money for such a limited service.

The only way to get the best out of Rome in one day. We were here for one day on a cruise and used this as a taster for Rome. It gets held up in traffic, stops for a while at the main sites as the bus fills up, but still the great value at 22 euros.

The service in this bus was ok.i have used this exact city tour bus in other Eurooean cities and the fare was cheaper and more efficient. I found I had to wait a bit to long for buses arrive at stops...longer than stipulated time. Also the stops close to sites and main attractions are too far away, had to walk too far to get to them.

Take care which colour hop on hop off bus ticket you buy!
I bought orange and it was a car crash! They only operate with 3 busses apparently and so you end up wasting limited time in this lovely city waiting around the stops.
Had to buy a 2nd ticket in the end. “I love Rome” was much better. Not sure you need more than a day though as most sites are close together.

Hi, we did not understand if you have used our service. You are probably reviewing another company, we are City Sightseeing Italy and our buses are the iconic red double-decker.

Plenty of buses. Masks required if you sit downstairs on the bus, which makes no sense because every venue is packed without people wearing masks. I wish the buses dropped off closer to venues. Even using the bus to get to the various locations, we averaged 7-9 miles a day walking.

We love using Hop on Hop Off to get a birdseye view of any city we visit ..Its also fun to be spontaneous and let your imagination guide you . It may be lunch time, and you linger where you have jumped off, or making a discovery and spending a little extra time at one stop, knowing when you can pick up the next bus or skip a bus .It can be a lot on fun !
you can choose to listen to the dialogue offered or just take in the sites.. Highly recommend this great system .

We used this bus tour a few years ago, and remember it was good back then, but extremely disappointed this time - we had bought a 72 hour family ticket - waited at Stop 7 (of 9) with 2 kids last Friday afternoon which was our last day in Rome, for 45 minutes on the bus coming.
A further 35 minutes later, we were still only at stop 1 - the delays spoiled our last afternoon in Rome to be honest.
There seemed to be more attention given to trying to get tourists onto the bus than looking after those who were on it.

This bus tour does a pretty wide loop, so you can reach all the major attractions. They give you disposable headphones so you can listen to an audio guide, describing each of the stops.

I recommend booking this tour early in your trip, so you can get a broad overview of Rome. Its especially useful if you don't have a rental car. I am glad I didn't rent a car after seeing the narrow roads and horrible traffic.

After our bus tour expired, we were able to get by using public transportation and Google Maps. It takes a little while to grasp the system for purchasing one-way metro and bus passes, but the most important part is validating your ticket.

Thankyou so much for your review, we really appreciate when our gentle costumers give us a detailled feedback, You are so right, Rome's traffic is quite crazy but this is really an italian thing to experience, preferably on board of one of our buses. We hope to have you onboard again soon.

I did this as a non stop tour. Approx 90 minutes. Started at the main train station. If you get the bus after 1pm get a reduced price €18 instead of €25.
Staff were friendly, explained about hopping on and off. Your ticket etc. Gave out red head phones and tell you which station to listen to.
Informative and relaxing..

I have used this company's hop on hop off bus in London and Berlin and they were great but not the same in Rome. Firstly the lady who gave our tickets to us was so rude, yelled at us for grabbing a pair of headphones from the box as thats what she is supposed to do. The same lady used a microphone to inform us of the stop approaching with no effort and basically screaming into the microphone so it was so awful to listen to. Secondly the drivers girlfriend was on the bus with her dog and they were talking so loud that we had to keep turning the volume up on the headset to hear. Would not recommend this service. Better to walk if you can.
