Skip the line ticket to the Colosseum, Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel
I was overall satisfied with the Rome set of Hop-on Hop Off, Colosseum & Vatican Museum tickers. I was able to spend my three days of Rome with the maximum satisfaction. I would recommend this set for those who need to travel through Rome within 3-4 days. The two tickets will help you save time to travel to other locations, instead of staying in line for 3-4 hours. Nothing really came up as a problem, because it turned out to become your responsiblity to spend quality time at Rome with all the sets you are given/purchased.

A little more history would be great in certain areas. Some of the stops were way too long. Some times sitting for 20 min. Wished ...they started an hour earlier, it’s beautiful in the early mornings. All in all it was easy, great areas they stopped at, great way to see the city and get around. more
It's very easy to use and all vouchers are redeemed directly on the bus. (The first stop is located near to the bus station) ...You then have to go to the office at the colleseum and Vatican city to exchange them for tickets. The office for the colleseum is a bit tricky to find and is located near one of exits, not at the entrance. However there are lots of tour guides touting for business who will be happy to direct you, just show them your printout. Staff speak excellent English and are very polite. I would recommend a tour guide for the colleseum, well worth the extra expense. Enjoy! more
Easy to book and once we found the pick up point for the bus we were off. It was a bit confusing converting the voucher for ticket...s and the Colesseum and Vatican so I would recommend going to the ticket office before you get the bus rather than doing it on the bus like it says you can because all you get is another voucher which you have to exchange. If you want to do everything you’ll definitely need a 48hr voucher. Would see a city again this way though as the tour around with the talk was very interesting. more
Very good way to see Rome highlights, however once at Colosseum and Vatican Museums unclear when to change the voucher for ticket.
Easy convenient and recommended especially for the skip the Q to Vatican Museum and Sistine Chapel.
It would have b...een better if the announcer in the hop on and off bus try to call out the names of the attractions at each stop in English. more

Everything, every stop, every office, every guide was ONLY 200 meters away. Somehow this company has managed to place everything i...n Rome 200 meters from where you need to be. Magical! more
Non-refundable once the voucher is redeemed for the ticket.
