Frequently Asked Questions

Our sightseeing buses will take you to the most interesting places in Rome. Most of the monuments on the route can be seen from the bus. However, due to municipal limitations, to ensure the good maintenance of the sites, some monuments cannot be seen from the bus but you will need to walk a few meters to get there. Taking this into account, we have strategically designed our route with stops that will bring you as close as possible to the places that interest you most.

The route takes around 1h 30 min.
