tickitaly.com - sightseeing, not queueing.

General information on the 'hop-on, hop-off' guided bus tours in assorted Italian cities.

We are now offering a selection of guided bus tours in more than ten Italian cities. Larger cities have a selection of different routes, and tours run from between one and two hours. But that's oversimplifying things. The beauty of this way of discovering Italy's splendid cities is the flexibility offered - see something interesting? - just hop off the bus, explore at your leisure, and then get back on the next bus that comes along. Your ticket is valid for 24 or 48 hours depending on the city, and you can chop and change between routes as much as you want to. Reduced price tickets are available for children aged between 5 and 15 years of age.

The routes pass alongside or very close to pretty much all major attractions, and your tour is accompanied by an audio guide through dedicated headphones (the guide is offered in a multitude of languages). You'll be travelling on specially purchased open-top double decker buses (open topped single-deck in Milan, Bergamo and around Lake Garda), and you'll be assisted onboard by multilingual hostesses and stewards (there is disabled access available also).

We offer tours in the following cities/areas - click on the links (note - we're in the process of adding 11 tours, for now we're getting started with Florence and Rome) for information on pricing, timing and route details:
