Rome hop-on hop-off tour buses have several operators with different prices but similar routes. The 24-hour ticket costs from 20 to 30 euros per person. Moreover, any Rome City Passes allow the use of buses free of admission. This is one of the best options to enjoy the sightseeing tour in the Eternal City by visiting the main sites while listening to the audio commentary in one of the open-top buses.
Isango Company provides Hop-On Hop-Off buses across 300+ destinations with more than 10 thousand experiences.
Moreover, Isango assures its clients that they choose the right experience in any chosen city. According to the reviews from the clients, hop-on hop-off bus operators help explore the city in a short period. For example, talking about Rome, the route of buses is excellent, and they actively pass through the city’s historical center, but since buses are big and some streets are tiny, they do not go to several sites like the Pantheon. However, there is a short walking distance from the tour bus stops to the most famous monuments, fountains, and squares of the Eternal City.
Rome hop-on hop-off tour offers open-top buses for a better city sightseeing experience. You can choose a seat on the double-decker tour bus and listen to the audio commentary offered in at least 6 languages. There are several kinds of tickets: for 24, 48 and 72 hours. Moreover, special offers include a tour bus ticket + entry to the Vatican, Sistine Chapel, Roman Forum, Colosseum, and more. Overall, there are eight-nine stops. The price on average is from 20 to 30 euros per 24-hour ticket.
With hop-on hop-off bus, you can admire the sights of Piazza Venezia, which is the central street of Rome, or enjoy the architecture and ancient ruins. You will have to show your ticket each time when you board the tour bus. Also, the full loop lasts for around 2 hours, with audio commentary for each sightseeing provided. There is free onboard WiFi.
48-hour Pass goes with Skip-the-Line Tickets to Palatine Hill, the Roman Forum, and Colosseum
All operators of hop-on-hop-off have the main stops at Termini Station and the Vatican in terms of where routes start and finish. Most buses have their first bus departing from Termini around 9 am, while the last bus usually leaves at 5 pm. Moreover, routes are changed during the weekend since road closures sometimes happen on Sundays. Also, if you have children, take a look at child fares because different operators have various age bands for kids.
City Sightseeing provides services all over the world. Also, they have noticeable red buses. Here’s the map of their route:
*On Saturday afternoons after 3 pm and Sundays, the bus will go to the Spanish Steps.

Since Saint Peter’s Basilica, the Vatican Museums, and the Colosseum are must-see sites for any visitor to Rome, you can purchase entry to all these destinations and a tour bus ticket. There are several kinds of 48-hour hop-on hop-off bus tickets:
This hop-on hop-off bus offers nine stops with the main attraction of Rome. It also has a similar City Sightseeing route, but with an additional stop.
The I Love Rome Tour is included for free if you have Roma Pass or any other Rome City Pass
This tour is different from others because Roma Cristiana is part of Opera Romana Pellegrinaggi (ORP). The operator is very much targeted at visitors interested in things religious, especially pilgrims. Moreover, it is solid on the Vatican, and you would suspect with their ownership.
I would recommend the option with hop-on-hop-off buses because it will make your Roman holiday better and you can save a lot of time and money on it.
