Hop-On Hop-Off Rome Bus Tour
This hop-on, hop-off tour of Rome offers an easy and comfortable way to reach the eternal city from the port of Civitavecchia. After an approximately 90 minutes drive you will be dropped off near Castel Sant' Angelo (the Vatican area). From here, the nearest bus stop is only approximately a 5 to 10 minute walk from the drop off site.
The excitement begins as you climb aboard your double-decker bus to visit the famous landmarks of the Eternal City. Ride on the top deck for beautiful panoramic views as wind through Rome to the Colosseum, Piazza Venezia, St. Peter's Basilica, and much more.
Hop off the bus to view the area around the Vatican or toss a coin in the Trevi Fountain, one of the most photographed fountains in the world. While on tour you can walk up the steep slope of the Spanish Steps, a walkway between two piazzas that has been referenced in many songs and films. Make sure to stop for a bite of delicious pasta and a cup of espresso as you make your way through the city!

This was a perfect way to see Rome on your own pace
I love booking Hop-on Hop-off bus tours whenever I visit a new city. The air conditioned double decker bus was perfect a hot day.
We were able to navigate our way around Rome very easily on this bus. All went well!

Good tour for people with limited walking abilities. The recorded guides were good with history facts.

Great way to get to Rome from Civitavecchia and much cheaper than what the cruise ship offers! The meeting point was easy to find for our trip back to Civitavecchia and the driver was on time and actually parallel parked the bus at our meeting point. Never seen that before!
