Roma Cristiana is at the moment one of no less than seven hop on, hop off sightseeing buses in Rome all offering a very similar service with almost identical buses. 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 but also enable a visit to the Appian Way a little outside the centre of Rome.


The Roma Cristiana Tour Bus

A modern audio-guide system in 8 languages (Italian, French, English, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Russian and Japanese) describe for you every stop of the way, along the sites most interesting from a religious, historical, artistic and cultural point of view.


There are 2 routes: Saint Peter’s route (12 stops) that covers most of the centre of Rome very similar to other HoHo buses and the Saint Paul’s route (8 stops) that runs in a smaller bus and covers less well known mainly religious sites most importantly San Giovanni in Laterano, but also the Baths of Caracalla not on other HoHo routes.


In addition to the 24 hour and 48 hour hop on, hop off ticket there is also a panoramic tour of Rome ticket that takes you on one full lap of the tour watching the Eternal City unfold before your eyes with commentary without getting off.


The service runs everyday, including Sundays and holidays. Buses broadly run between about 9:30 a.m. and 6 p.m.
