  • Make getting around the city of Rome super easy with the Hop-on Hop-off Bus, valid for 48 hours. Line A departs every 10 minutes, lines B&C every 30 minutes
  • Get into the Colosseum, the world's biggest amphitheater, and access the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill the next day
  • Skip the line to the Vatican Museums - a stronghold of artistic treasures so vast that it's not one museum but many (hence the plural)!

Swap your voucher for three paper tickets, one for the Hop-on Hop-off Bus, one for the Vatican and one for the Colosseum, and you're good to explore these hot Roman highlights! See them both in one day, or use them over two consecutive days. Easy!

The handy Hop-on Hop-off Bus stops at numerous useful points around the city, so making your way to the Colosseum is easy. Once you activate your ticket with the first 'hop', it's valid for 48 hours.

See the world's biggest amphitheatre, and one of the most impressive Roman architecture and engineering works at your own pace - just get your timeslot at the Colosseum gate, then skip the line. You can also enter the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill with this ticket!

The ticket for the Vatican Museums allows you to choose your visit time. Once inside the home of the Pope, allow the mesmerization process to begin. It's a real embarrassment of riches, culminating with a visit to the Sistine Chapel and the chance to see what many say is the finest work of art ever created!

Molto, molto bene!
