Our guide to Rome Hop-on/Hop-off Bus Tour plus St Peter's Basilica

A hop-on, hop-off bus tour is one of the easiest ways of exploring the incredible city of Rome and an excellent way of get your bearings.

All the stops are situated best to the best known and best loved monuments and landmarks ensuring you do not miss any of the key sights. You can hop-on and off the sightseeing buses as many times as you like for the duration of your ticket giving you the flexibility to explore, sightsee and visit attractions. 

Included in your ticket is an audio guided tour of St. Peter’s Basilica, enabling you to explore the Basilica at your own pace.

From the Trevi fountain to the Colosseum, Rome’s abundant sights rival those of any other city on the planet, in terms of their beauty, historical importance and ability to simply take your breath away. Whether your interests lie in antiquity, architecture, cuisine, culture, religion, shopping or sport, Rome has something to suit all tastes. Stroll through the Pantheon, marvel at Michelangelo’s Piazza del Campidoglio and admire the Swiss Guardsmen of Vatican City.

Try a ‘proper’ spaghetti alla Carbonara near the Spanish Steps or sit back with a coffee and people-watch in Piazza Navona. Alternatively, if you fancy a break from Rome sightseeing, act like a local and take in a Lazio or Roma match at the Olympic Stadium.
