After having a particularly bad experience with the same/similar company in Malta a few years ago, we were giving this tour the benefit of the doubt as Rome has so many tourist attractions and felt that surely it would be worth it, we even went for the '72 hour' ticket as it only costs a few more euros so you...

We bought a 24 hour ticket with course 50€ for 2 adults. Commentary was poor and out of time with the attractions we went round twice first time commentary was delayed and second time it was early so you really have no idea what the explanation is about or what building/monument it is talking about. We waited for approx 35... More

Like others I would say this tour is not as good as experienced in other cities. There is too much time waiting a pick up points, the bus stop is around 20mins walk from the Vatican Museum, the commentary is not that good and not well timed and overall customer service is average. Whilst I brought my tickets online, there... More

We visited Rome for a couple of days. On one of the days we decided to get on the hop on hop off bus which was a mistake! We paid in advance for our tickets from the hotel. When we went to validate the ticket at the bus the woman told us she wouldnt accept it after spending 80 euros... More

A single day of bus travel is quite expensive but if you get it for multiple days it becomes much better priced. The bus is great for some attractions for others it gets close but you still need to walk a bit further to get to them.

I've done bus tours of several cities and I can usually find something positive to say, but my experience in Rome was horrible in every way. I wish I had read reviews before spending $100.00 for our group. First, the guys on Segways claim to be authorized sellers of tickets but apparently they are not. They feed on tourist like... More

We were walking back from dinner near the Trevi Fountain on our first evening in Rome, and noticed the shop for City Sightseeing Rome was still open. We met a lovely young lady (sorry, I can't remember her name), but she was so helpful and friendly, and spoke very good English. She asked what we wanted to see, and talked... More

Bought our tickets, showing the previous cities tickets which gets you 10% off the cost. We were told on buying that several stops were inaccessible on the afternoon due to demonstrations, but no offer of a discount for this inconvenience or disruption to the service. On the whole the commentary is reasonable and the music standard and this is a... More

Nothing extravagant, the music between the commentary is soul destroying, I'd rather there wasn't any, the commentary was ok but it said a lot of things that almost everyone would already know, also at one point we got on and the commentary was completely out of sync with where we were, but it is a good way of getting to...

Staying in Colonna

Neighbourhood Profile
Colonna
Frantic fashionistas, pedicured politicos, goal-oriented tourists, and on-the-go locals cross paths every day in Colonna, a delightful chaos in the very centre of the city. Even though it has some of the city’s loveliest sites—a 2nd century column, Belle Epoque shopping centre, and a magnificent Baroque parliament building—Colonna is not just another pretty face, but the cosmopolitan eye of Rome’s cultural storm. Colonna can safely say it has the best of Rome: museums, boutiques, window displays, restaurants, cafes, and people watching.
