based on 520 reviews

There is so much to do in Rome. This is a great way to get a picture of the whole city and figure out what you want to revisit and where to spend more time. This bus had free Wi-Fi which was nice (I don’t think all the bus tours offer this) and they immediately covered the top when it started to rain.

Top top This bus allows you to see the main monuments and thanks to its application to know where to get off to find beautiful hidden Piazzas or other I highly recommend I can't wait to do it in other cities
