Why are Hop-on Hop-off Passes a great way to explore the city?

Stand anywhere in Rome, and you will likely be a stone’s throw away from a place that’s steeped in history, art and culture. The ‘Eternal City’ has been around for 3,000 years accumulating interesting myths, beautiful art and fantastic architecture. The entire historic centre of Rome and Vatican City has been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The buses follow a well-charted route that goes through all the important destinations in the city, so you don’t have to worry about organizing your route or arranging for transport.

The buses are modern and designed for excellent viewing of the cityscape and come with comfortable seating. They are equipped with free Wi-Fi and multilingual audio guides. The HOHO bus tours have exciting add-ons like walking tours, guided tours and priority entry tickets that ensure you get the best value of your money and make your visit to Rome memorable!
