BUS TOURS OF ROME, ITALY - GUIDED COACH TRIPS IN ROME

Recent comment:

Vatican and St Peters private tour, Monday 17th March 2014

I would like to give you feedback on the above which our party of 8 enjoyed immensely.

Everything was perfect, meeting, entry (lovely to pass those queues), technology, venue (of course), etc.

But the best thing about the whole morning was your guide Deborah. She is charming, friendly, erudite, and a real credit to you. We listened to her intently throughout, she held our attention, surprised us, interacted with us, answered all our questions, and made the morning very special. We would have missed so much without her. We all think we would like to meet her again and when we come back to Rome we would hope to do so.

Many thanks

Guided bus tours, Rome, Italy

There are two tour routes for Rome, Route A and Route B, both around 95 minutes duration. Route A heads further to the north, passing the Borghese Gallery and Piazza del Popolo, whereas Route B spends more time in central Rome, passing the Quirinale and briefly running alongside the Tiber. Tickets are valid for 48 hours and both routes.

The routes criss-cross and run alongside each other at multiple points, and you are free to switch from one route to the other as many times as you wish. Tickets are valid for two days and both routes, leaving you a lot of time (though there will never be enough, unfortunately!) to tick all of your must-see boxes. As of early 2011 the price is inclusive of the new Rome Tourist Tax. The accompanying audio tour is available in 8 different languages (Italian, English, French, Spanish, German, Russian, Japanese and Chinese). The tours operate on a 'hop-on, hop-off' basis, meaning you may leave and subsequently rejoin the buses wherever and whenever you like! You can download detailed route-maps (PDF) showing both routes on the same map - the routes vary slightly according to day of the week - Monday to Friday map is here, weekends and special holidays map is here.

To get started simply click on the calendar below to select the date that interests you. The calendar will automatically block any dates that are not available, and do remember that dates are in European (day-month-year) format! Further down the page you'll find timetables for both routes, including starting times, finishing times and frequency, and don't worry - with your booking confirmation we'll be sending you full directions on how to join the tours.
