Our guide to Rome Hop-on/Hop-off Double Decker Bus Tour

With a Double Decker Tour Ticket, you can hop-on any CitySightseeing bus at any of the stops throughout Rome, giving you the freedom and flexibility to explore at your own pace before boarding hopping back on to continue your tour.

What's more, your ticket is valid for either 1-Day (valid from the first to the last departure of the day), 24, 48 or 72 hours and includes two routes around the city allowing for a comprehensive itinerary.

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.
