Have fast-track entry to the Vatican Museums which means more time exploring the world’s most extensive collection of art, and less time waiting in the famously long lines.

From the open-top bus, you will enjoy privileged views of the Eternal City’s main sights, including the Spanish Steps, Colosseum, and Imperial Forum.

Great opportunity. I think it would be better to provide two meet up locations - one for the bus and the other for the Vatican. Once we figured out where we were going, it was a bit smoother. Also- be sure to get a map of the Vatican. We almost missed the entrance for the Sistine chapel. So much to take in!!

Sara was a fantastic guide, we had a problem and she sorted out for us nothing was too much for her. I would definitely recommend this hop-on hop-off for Rome. Top make sure that if you're going to the Vatican you catch the bus within 2 hours of your actual tour time
