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 amphitheatre 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 centre 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 favourite 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 - Rome facts:

  • 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!

Excellent value for money. We had an excellent time in Rome, especially purchasing the OMNIA card. It was hassle free, easy to buy and got us into all the sites we wanted to see. Even the open top bus tours was worth it. Would definitely recommend buying a card and we will do so on our next trip.
