The hop-on hop-off bus is a brilliant way to get around Rome when you are not familiar with the city and it also shows you far more than just the landmarks, it's a lovely route through 'normal' streets too! But there are no signs telling you where the bus stops are, we wasted a lot of time just trying to locate the first stop to get on the bus in the first place! And locals are willing to help but their directions are not always 100% accurate :-) We ended up using Google maps to locate street names and then walking up and down until we saw the bus!

We are in Rome for a month, and we took the one round trip (no hop-on hop-off option) to help us get to know the city a bit better on our first day. Even without the hop-on hop-off experience, we saw so much and were able to plan our trip a bit better for the weeks to come. It was such a great affordable option for us!

Good way to get an overview of Rome and get off there, what you want to see. The buses run continuously. We didn't have to wait longer than 10 minutes or were able to board directly when we got to the stop. Only once or twice the text played did not match the location of the bus. Maybe it was due to the rush hour traffic.
