Full description
Explore the Eternal City from a hop-on hop-off sightseeing bus with your 1-day, 24, 48 or 72-hour ticket. Travel past the city's icons, leave the bus at any of the 8 stops, and simply hop back on the next bus when you want to continue. Stay flexible while seeing all the amazing sights that Rome has to offer.

Legend tells of Romulus and Remus and the 7 hills of Rome. Today the city is home to one of the world's largest churches, the Basilica di San Pietro of the Vatican, approached through a marvelous elliptical piazza, as well as the magnificent Colosseum, cinematic Trevi Fountain, and romantic Spanish Steps. With its vibrant café culture and quaint trattorias, Rome never fails to inspire.
The full loop takes 100 minutes and you can jump off at any of the following points along the way:


Stop 1: Terminal A. Termini Marsala / Terminal B. Largo di Villa Peretti / Terminal C Piazza dei Cinquecento, on the corner of Via Cavour
Stop 2: Santa Maria Maggiore
Stop 3: Colosseo
Stop 4: Circo Massimo
Stop 5: Piazza Venezia
Stop 6: Vaticano 
Stop 7: Fontana Di Trevi 
Stop 8: Piazza Barberini

The 1-day ticket validity expires with the last bus ride of the day. However, you can change from a 1-day to a 24 hour ticket, in which instance the fare will expire exactly 24 hours after the ticket was changed. For example: if a 1-day ticket has been changed to a 24-hour voucher on Monday at 2.00 p.m. Before, the ticket would have been valid until the end of the last bus ride on Monday. After changing, the ticket will be valid until Tuesday at 2.00 p.m.. The same logic applies to the 48 and 72 hour tickets.
