Things to see

One of Italy’s top landmarks, the Colosseum is a highlight on the Rome hop on hop off bus tour. With a stop directly outside the famous amphitheater of ancient Rome, you’ll be able to witness the iconic façade that has stood the test of time. 

St Peter’s Basilica
Venture further into the Vatican City, as this bus tour takes you to St Peter’s Basilica – the center of the Catholic Church and a holy destination for pilgrims far and wide. Observe the imposing dome, Rome’s most dominant feature along its skyline, and admire the work of Michelangelo, Bramante, and Bernini in its architecture.

Piazza Navona
Rome is famous for its baroque architecture and there’s nowhere better to admire the style than in the famous Piazza Navona. Adorned with three large fountains and marble statues, the piazza is framed by baroque buildings and restaurants pouring onto the cobbles. A favorite for locals and tourists alike, it’s a great place to stop for a coffee and watch the world go by, as well as to admire the classic architecture of the city.

Did you know

  • Piazza Navona was built on the ancient Stadium of Domitian – also known as Circus Agonalis, “the competition arena”. It’s believed the name Agonalis morphed into Navona over time - which also explains its oval, stadium shape
  • Circus Maximus was so big it could seat nearly a quarter of a million people – that’s 200,000 more people than the Colosseum
  • Although the Colosseum was renowned for its gory gladiator fights – it was also a venue for festivals and miniature boat races!
