Your Experience

Go around the city in bright red Hop-On Hop-Off double-decker buses with an open top, so you can enjoy the pleasant Italian weather as you discover the numerous sights of Rome from your unique vantage point. The bus will have live commentary in 8 different languages, which will give you excellent insight into the history and culture of each for the monuments and will help you understand their significance. During the journey, you will go past colorful markets, quaint neighborhoods, churches and a number of art museums and monuments. With the Hop-On Hop-Off ticket, you can board and deboard the city sightseeing buses as many times as needed. This gives you the flexibility to choose your own timings and spend as much time as needed at each of the attractions.

You will also be given ATAC (Rome’s public transport company) tickets, which are valid for 24 hours or 48 hours depending on your choice of pass. These tickets can be used to travel to the various parts of Rome using several forms of public transport, such as the regional railways, metro lines, bus, trams, and trolleys. The city is small enough for you to easily visit its most famous attractions in the course of 3-4 days, which is how long you'll be able to use both tickets for if you redeem them on different dates.
