Top 5 things to see on a Rome bus tour

From hop on hop off bus tours around the Eternal City, to small coach excursions, to the more far-flung sights, here are some of the best things you can do on a bus tour around Rome.

  • Colosseum

    1. Colosseum

    Marvel at Rome's famous Colosseum as well as other nearby attractions. While in the area, your bus will also pass the Roman Forum and the Arch of Constantine!

  • Appian Way

    2. Appian Way

    This historically strategic road – along which Spartacus' army was crucified – dates back to 312 BC. Bus tours can help discover ancient aqueducts and the Tomb of Cecilia Metella.

  • St. Peter's Basilica

    3. St. Peter's Basilica

    The largest church in the world is a masterpiece of Renaissance architecture. Supposedly, it was built over the burial place of St. Peter, the apostle and first Pope of Rome.

  • Catacombs of Rome

    4. Catacombs of Rome

    Rome has no less than 40 mass tombs buried beneath its suburbs. The best way to visit the Catacombs is as part of a bus tour that includes stops for exploring!

  • Piazza Venezia

    5. Piazza Venezia

    The name of this huge piazza derives from the square's Venetian Palace. However, it'll be the National Monument to Victor Emmanuel II that catches your eye!

Planning Your Visit

  • What time of day to go?

    If you plan on booking a bus tour that allows stops to alight and explore – whether within the city or outside of its limits – it's best to leave as early as possible to avoid crowds and traffic. However, if you're merely after great views from your window seat, why not tour the city by night, when many of its monuments will be spectacularly lit?

  • How much does it cost?

    Prices for Rome bus tour tickets start at €10 for a basic hop-on hop-off package, to over €100 for small-group tours that include attraction tickets and/or meals.

Our guide Joseph was great. The day was nicely split with Hadrian’s palace in the morning and the Villa d’Este and it’s amazing fountains in the afternoon. I felt we had adequate time at both sites as well as a good break for lunch. But Joseph was truly one of the highlights - very informative and a very engaging personality.

Our Guide Anna and our driver was excellent. Montepulciano and Pienza was really beautiful. The lunch and winetasting was perfect. We really enjoyed this trip. It was perfect!!!

Would definitely recommend this day trip. Tuscany is beautiful and Emiliano was an amazing tour guide, full of knowledge, stories and great fun!

Practical and gives you houndreds of ideas for following days

It was great, but would have liked to have taken pictures.
