Rome Bus Tours

Central Rome

There are three main types of tours in Rome – walking tours, bus tours and bike tours.

Bus tours are a great way of seeing a number of Rome attractions in one day without walking between them or having to take the underground Metro or a taxi. Bus tours of Rome depart regularly from Rome’s main railway station, Rome Termini, every 15-20 minutes. You can also join or get off the bus at the Vatican or any of the other attractions visited by the bus. An entire tour of Rome takes from one and a half to two hours, depending on the famous Rome traffic.

The bus tour will take you to see all the main Rome attractions, including the Quirnale, Piazza Venezia, the Coliseum, Circo Massimo, Piazza Navona, The Vatican, Castel Sant’Angelo and the Trevi Fountain.

Rome walking tours, on the other hand, tend to focus on one tourist attraction per walking tour. Most tour companies provide groups, private and semi-private tours of the Pantheon, the Vatican, the Rome Catacombs, the Forums and more. Some tours operate at night too – and Rome is beautiful city at night.

Recently, bike tours of Rome having taken off so keep an eye out for those – Rome has an increasing number of cycle lanes to help around Rome. Or, if you want to enjoy a fun bike tour without the effort, try hiring a Segway at Piazza del Popolo just of Rome’s main street, Via del Corso.

Although walking tours of Rome can be arranged once you arrive, many people prefer to reserve their tour online through an established company like Viator – it saves spending precious vacation time in a sticky booking office.
