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.

Great way to see attractions

Enjoyable experience to see the attractions when you have limited time in the city. Well worth the cost of your ticket.

Rome in a day!

You can not beat a HoHo when short on time! We visited Rome for a short time and found that the hop-on/hop-off saved was THE BEST way to see this city. The price was much more reasonable than the other well-known line. The entire bus...More

Worth doing

The only problem is the bus schedule seems to be a little bit out, sometimes the bus arrives on time sometimes you may wait 20 minuets.
