A vacation in Rome should be as thoroughly planned as possible in order for tourists to be able to see all of the essential attractions. The bus tours offered by sundry companies in Rome count as a possible solution in this respect, since the itineraries they suggest have been conceived such as to cover as many as possible of Rome’s prestigious sights. Stops at the Vatican, in Piazza Venezia, at Circus Maximus, at the Coliseum, and along the Tiber River are, as a rule, included in these tours. Note that there is a plethora of bus tour operators in Rome, and the ongoing policy of the municipal authorities is to diminish their number, which is why most of these companies are affected by the newly enforced regulations.

Viator

Viator is a company which offers tourist-oriented services, namely, it gives visitors the opportunity to admire most of the Old Center of Rome from open top double-deckers. The advantages one can enjoy are, for instance, the fact the itineraries comprise stops at places like Circus Maximus, the Coliseum, the Vatican and the Tiberina Island. Furthermore, we speak of hop on hop off tours, which means tourists have the opportunity to admire the sights at their own pace, of course, within the limits of the tickets they purchase and of the daily available bus schedule.

The open top double-deckers of this company cover two routes: the Red Line and the Blue Line. Plenty of stops are common to these lines (such as the Vatican, Piazza Barberini, Circus Maximus and Piazza Venezia), but they are not identical. The information offered by the guides is in several languages (Russian, Chinese, Japanese, German, French, Spanish and, of course, English and Italian), and the buses are also fitted for people with reduced mobility. Another advantage is the sightseeing offers are conceived under the heading of the hop on hop off tours.
