Guided bus tours, Rome, Italy

The Line A open top sightseeing bus tour of Rome lasts 100 minutes. You have the opportunity to see all the main points of interest, including the Colosseum, the Trevi Fountain and the Vatican, and as the tours operate on a 'hop-on, hop-off' basis you may leave and subsequently rejoin the buses whenever and as often you like at the 8 stops on the route, giving you a chance to tick all your must-see boxes in this incredible city!

There is an accompanying audio tour available in 8 different languages (Italian, English, French, Spanish, German, Russian, Japanese and Chinese). If you decide to hop off you can download the ROME WALKING TOUR onboard, and listen to it when you want without the necessity of an Internet connection.

You can download a detailed route-map (PDF) here.

Policy on the admission of pets:

Small/medium domestic animals will be permitted on the bus only on the understanding that they are inoffensive and do not pose a risk to the bus or passengers' security. If the driver at any point decides that the animal poses a risk to passengers or the bus, they can insist that the animal is denied access to, or is removed from the bus, at any point and at their incontestable discretion and with NO right of refund.

The animal must be kept on a leash and muzzle at all times. Animals that cannot for whatever reason use a muzzle must be kept in a pet carrier. The pet carrier must be in good condition, clean, must not contain food, and must not pose a risk to other people on the bus.

This tour was really wonderful. We bypassed the terrible lines and went right in to meet our bus tour. Then went right in the museum after bus tour. Great experience.
