Hop-on Hop-off guided Rome Bus Tour

I am a big fan of the hop-on hop-off guided Rome bus tour. Actually, it's the very first thing I do when I visit any new city! This article will help you discover the routes, stops and reviews of Rome guided tours....

About Rome guided tours    •   Map of Tour Bus Stops    •    Rome bus tour reviews

What's so great about doing a guided bus tour of Rome?

  • It helps you orientate yourself by remembering certain tourist attractions and landmarks (a cafè, monument, giant sculpted sheep or whatever) so that afterwards you can find your way around a little easier during the rest of your holiday,

  • While doing the whole route (first without getting off the bus) I will take note of all the places I would like to visit later and then judge how much time I have and how many attractions might be possible to visit,

About the Rome bus tours:
The 1st Rome bus tour of the day departs from Termini Station and also at San Pietro (St Peters) at 9:00am. The last tour departs from Termini Station at 6:45pm and San Pietro at 7:45pm. Buses leave every 15 to 20 minutes, Rome traffic permitting, of course.

One advantage is that on this Guided Rome bus tour not only do you have an audio guide but you are also accompanied by a tour host (English and Italian) who will assist with any questions you may have.

Note: You don't have to begin at Termini or St Peters you can hop on and off at any of the 13 stops dotted around the most important Rome locations:

  • 1   Termini: Piazza dei Cinquecento, Termini Stations' massive square.


  • 2   Piazza Venezia: Museo Vittoriano near the 'colonna Traiana' Monday to Saturday and near Piazza Ara Coeli on Sundays and Bank Holidays


  • 3   Colosseo: Via di San Gregorio (the road running from the Colosseum to Circus Maximus) Monday to Saturday and on Sunday and Bank Holidays at Via Nicola Salvi 64


  • 4   Circo Massimo: Opposite Piazzale Ugo La Malfa (the highest point of Circus Maximus) - Aventine area


  • 5   Isola Tiberina: Piazza di Monte Savello (on Lungotevere Road opposite the island) - see my Trastevere area.


  • 6   Chiesa Nuova: Piazza della Chiesa Nuova (Corso Vittorio Emanuele) between the Campo de Fiori and the Pantheon areas.


  • 7   Vaticano: Opposite St Peter's, via della Conciliazione - Vatican area


  • 8   Ponte Sant Angelo: Piazza Sant'Angelo opposite the Castle - Vatican area


  • 9   Ponte Umberto I: Ponte Umberto - Navona area


  • 10 Augusto Imperatore: Lungotevere in Augusta (facing Piazza del Popolo), 50 meters from Ara Pacis Monument - Piazza del Popolo area


  • 11 Via Ludovisi: Via Ludovisi 48, 50 meters from Parking Ludovisi - Via Veneto area


  • 12 Piazza Barberini: Beside the Optician shop - Via Veneto area


  • 13 Santa Maria Maggiore: Via Liberiana 16, Basilica Santa Maria Maggiore - Esquiline area

Reviews of Rome bus tours

- Very good way of getting around town and seeing the sites first up. We got a 48 hour ticket and also used it as 'public transport' during our stay. Watch out which route you are on though; it isn't always obvious which of the routes you are actually on until it takes a turn in the wrong direction. Highly recommended.

- We found the trip very interesting, the route went by most sights we wanted to see. It was a bit cold upstairs so we saw most of Rome from downstairs. The commentary was out sometimes they cant tell their left from their right side. We had a 2 day ticket which was well worth the money.

- Buses did not appear at the advertised frequencies.
