Opening hours
09:00 - 19:00
  • Digital commentary on the air-conditioned buses comes in nine different languages, so you’ll always be prepared for each site you visit
  • Get a 1- or 2-day ticket, so you can have unlimited usage of the Big Bus service for up to two days. Hungry for more? Choose the Deluxe ticket and enjoy a special bus tour of the Catacombs and the ancient Appian Way
  • All tickets include 4 free one-hour walking tours of some of Rome's finest piazzas and fountains, such as the Pantheon, Piazza Navona, Spanish steps, and many more!

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.

I rode the Big Bus for two days....the first day, I went around twice....did not get off....by doing this, I figured the city out and the monuments....the second day, I knew what I wanted to do and how to do it....it was fantastic....got to a lot of places easily just by knowing where they were....the staffs on the bus were terrific and very polite....I highly recommend doing this Big Bus tour...made Rome for me....and the pick up was just down from my hotel....could not have been better for me!

Very easy to use and so convenient to get to the different main attractions. Always check which bus company you are booked with. There are so many hop on hop off companies we were lining up for the wrong one. All the information is right there we just didn't read it lol. I recommend getting the tiqets app, so easy to access tickets from there.

Very convenient way to tour Rome.

The tour and route was great. Excellent views. However, you can't feel the air conditioning! Very worth it if you want to conquer seeing a few attractions in one day. The red line is a fantastic route!

The use of Tiqets was very easy! I like their process and will continue to use them for other attractions. However, the next time we visit Rome we will not use the Big Bus line for getting around to attractions. We will use another line. Not enough buses, too few stops, had to walk too far to many attractions. We left Vatican and were to walk to Pantheon, the attendant in the booth told me it was a 10 minute walk, after walking over 10 minutes we stopped to ask someone else who told us another 15 minutes. This was the stop for both Vatican but to also be able to walk to Pantheon. We went back to bus as it was getting late.
