Roma Cristiana is one of the cheapest as well as having some of the highest frequencies, so you spend minimal time waiting for the next bus. However, the Roma Cristiana buses do have an identity with some notable difference in emphasis to the other competing tours.


The Roma Cristiana Tour Emphasis

Roma Cristiana is part of Opera Romana Pellegrinaggi, a branch of the Vicariate of Rome, an organ of the Holy See, directly overseen by the Cardinal Vicar to the Pope.

Opera Romana Pellegrinaggi offer a range of tours and activities in Rome of which the Roma Cristiana tour bus is just one highly visible part. The services are very much targeted at visitors to Rome with an interest in things religious, especially pilgrims. It is very strong on the Vatican and you would suspect with their ownership.


The key aspect is that Roma Cristiana cover all the key major tourist hotspots of the Roman Forum, Colloseum, Vatican etc but stop further away from the Spanish Steps or Trevi Fountain than other buses. Instead the bus visits religious attractions which other HoHo buses do not, notably San Giovanni In Laterano .
