Hoho bus in Rome


Scotchick

Recommended Posts

Do the hoho buses run at night in Rome. Would like to see Rome by night. Thought it would be a cheaper way to see Rome at night or should I just call a taxi - anyone know what it would cost. TIA.

 

This is the website of the open top bus http://www.trambusopen.com/index.cfm?Id=110. It seems it only runs until 8.30pm so it depends what time of year you're going as to whether it will be dark.

 

I think you would get a better view from the top floor of the bus than from a taxi. However, some of the scenes best seen at night - such as the Trevi Fountain and Spanish Steps, cannot be seen from the bus but are a short walk away from one of the bus stops

You might want to check into something like this night tour by bus:

Thanks, this looks very interesting. We arrive in Rome a couple of days early and were wondering what we'd have the energy to do the first day. This would give a couple of hours to collapse and then a good overview before the walking stuff the nest day.

It works like a ‘jump on’ / jump off’ tour, and the visitor can stop at any of the above mentioned sights, as long as the ticket is used just one day.

The whole tour lasts about 2 hours. A hostess on the bus offers a guided tour in different languages. The 110 OPEN ticket ist valid the whole day.
