    In-arguably the most majestic structure of the Roman Empire, the Colosseum (originally known as the Flavian Amphitheatre) is inhabited by myriad tales of bravery, public life and royalty in ancient Rome. Despite the pillage of natural disasters, fires, pollution and wars, it is a living proof of the stunning architecture and strong masonry of ancient world, and has served as a model for stadiums around the world. 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 can only 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. Every corner of the chapel is decorated with mosaics on the floor and intricate frescoes on the wall painted by the early Renaissance artists. 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.

  • 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, 05/Jun/2018
    • 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...
