Description

There's so much to see in the Eternal City, and this tour puts you in the passenger seat, so you can see all of the highlights - including the Colosseum, Pantheon, and St. Peter’s Basilica. You'll love the convenience of the air-conditioned hop-on, hop-off bus tour - so you have the luxury of deciding how much time you want to spend at each individual location. Plus, by removing the stress of trying to conquer the city's public transport, you'll have more energy to explore your favorite sites.

Rome has so many stunning sites that it can be hard to manage them all. But this hop-on hop-off tour takes you everywhere you want to go. Plus, the audio guide (available in nine languages) will give you plenty of context so you'll increase your understanding and appreciation of Rome's marvels. There's also a walking tour included, so you get to see some of Baroque Rome's finest sights.

You’ll find out all about the emperors and the baying crowds who made the Colosseum such a unique, thrilling, and terrifying place in ancient times. Then you can hop off and visit the building itself. After exploring this mighty ruin at your own pace, you can hop right back on your Big Bus coach, and it's on to the next stop!

Other stops include the nearby Circus Maximus - where 250,000 people would gather to watch the high-speed chariot races, and the historical center, with famous monuments such as the Trevi Fountain, the Spanish Steps, and the wondrous Pantheon.

If you’ve still got energy – or even better, an extra day or two – Big Bus will also take you across the Tiber to visit the Vatican Museums, Sistine Chapel, and St. Peter’s Basilica.

The old saying goes that "Rome wasn’t built in a day". You’ll quickly discover that seeing Rome in a day is also a tall order. But with Big Bus Tours, you’ll see and learn much more than you ever thought was possible.

It was a little confusing as to why or even how to choose a different color bus route that you have to stick to. The bus and journey itself was fine (the same as in other countries) though.

Big Bus was brilliant! Seemed to be one of the quieter services too which hugely worked in our favour. Incredibly friendly staff too, and regular buses.

Very good service, with the option to buy attractions tickets at discounted prices. Worth paying for a 2 day tkt to allow spending time at the main attractions.

The stops are too long. It would be great if the trips ran both ways!

It would be nice to have another route, and more stops at more locations. The workers and buses were good. The buses were on time.
