Moreover, any of Rome City Passes allow use of buses free of admission. This is one of the best options to enjoy the sightseeing tour in the Eternal City with the visit to the main sites, while listening to the audio commentary in one of the open-top buses.

Moreover, Isango assures its clients that they choose the right experience for them in any chosen city. According to the reviews from the clients, hop-on hop-off bus operators are definitely helpful to explore the city in a short period of time. Talking about Rome, the route of buses is great and they actively pass through the historical center of the city, but since buses are big and some streets are tiny, they do not go to several sites as 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 better city sightseeing experience. You can choose a seat in the double-decker tour bus and listen to the audio commentary, which is offered in at least 6 languages. There are several kinds of tickets: for 24, 48 and 72 hours. Moreover, there are special offers that include 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 euro 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. Each time you will have to show your ticket when you board the tour bus. Also, the full loops lasts for around 2 hours with audio commentary for each sightseeing provided. There is the free onboard WiFi.
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 there are 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.

This hop-on hop-off bus offers nine stops with main attraction of Rome. It also has a similar to 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 with an interest in things religious, especially pilgrims. Moreover, it is very strong on the Vatican and you would suspect with their ownership.
I would definitely recommend the option with hop-on hop-off buses because it will make you Roman holiday better and you can save a lot of time and money on it.
