    In-arguably, myriad tales of bravery, public life and royalty in ancient Rome inhabit the most majestic structure of the Roman Empire, the Colosseum (originally known as the Flavian Amphitheatre). Explore Michelangelo’s staircase to reach the Campidoglio – the beautiful piazza outside the Capitoline Museums or visit the arena floor and be amazed by the magnitude of the Amphitheatre.

    Note: Your Colosseum ticket has to be used on the first day of your hop-on, hop-off tour.


    Be overwhelmed as you enter the Vatican Museum and visit the majestic Sistine Chapel in the Apostolic Palace, the official residence of the Pope. Feast your eyes by looking at the luminous paintings on the ceiling and behind the altar painted by Michelangelo, one of the greatest artists of all time.

    Note: Your ticket includes reserved entrance for the Vatican Museum & the Colosseum. There will be special priority line for you to enter the attraction however; you may still have to queue. Hey, no worries, the queue certainly will not be as long as the general entrance!

  • Customer Reviews
    • They advertise no lines and that is not an exaggeration. The hop off hop on bus was a good overview of Rome. We have done that in other cities, but I think I have heard better...

      Claudette Jaramillo, United States
    • The busses were nice and the stops were good. Would have liked to have a little more instruction on how to get to the main sites at each stop. The map was good but somewhat hard...
