See Rome’s highlights in an efficient, flexible way on a hop-on hop-off bus tour. Choose a 24- or 48-hour ticket to suit your schedule, and then step aboard at one of the eight stops and enjoy unobstructed views from the open-top upper deck. Sights include the Trevi Fountain, the Colosseum, and Vatican City, among others. Upgrade to include admission ticktes to attractions such as the Sistine Chapel, the Vatican Museums, the Roman Forum, and the Colosseum.
What to Expect
With your prepaid ticket in hand, make your way to one of the eight stops on the bus route. Choose between a 24-hour or 48-hour ticket when booking, according to your interests, schedule, and budget. 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. Listen to the audio commentary with historical and cultural information about each sight as you pass. If you stay on board the entire time, the loop takes between 1.5 and 2 hours; otherwise, you can choose to get off at any of the stops and explore further on your own.

See the Colosseum where gory gladiatorial battles once took place, and have your camera ready for Piazza Venezia, home to the Vittorio Emanuele II Monument. Throw a coin into the Trevi Fountain for luck, or stretch your legs on a walk through Vatican City.

Not worth the effort

I did not find the Ho Ho bus very useful. I understand with the layout of the city that you cannot use the bus for a quick overview of the sites. You need to get off the bus, walk blocks to the Trevi Fountain, the...More

Didn't Go Close Enough to the Attractions

This bus tour was so-so. The narrative was all right and the view from the top level was all right. However, this hop-on hop-off bus (and all of them) do not get that close to the attractions. This has more to do with the location...More

This was a great way to get around the city and see all the sights! They were frequent and we could always get a seat. However, we also bought the skip the line ticket for the colosseum which also got us in the Palatine Hill...More
