You have just arrived in Rome. After leaving behind the airport fuss and securing your accommodation, there’s only one thing that will mark the start of your perfect holiday in the Eternal city: a sightseeing Rome tour. A Rome bus tour is ideal for those visiting the place for the first time, without knowing what to expect and where to go next. It’s the polite introduction between a hoping tourist, looking for wonders, and a fascinating city that can measure up even to the most pretentious of expectations. Hello Rome! It’s a pleasure to meet you!

The standard Rome bus tour usually starts in the city center, taking you to all the major archeological sites and monuments. You’ll have the chance of gaining an overall impression of the Roman Forum and the Palatine Hill, to wonder at the Colosseum and appreciate the beauty of arcs, basilicas and ancient temples, to be surprised by the imposing size of the Vittorio Emanuele I white marble monument, to peek at the bustle of daily life on Rome’s major streets and to breath in the Tiber air as you get a glimpse of the famous Saint Peter’s Basilica and the Sant Angelo Castle on the Lungoteverre.

Probably a sightseeing Rome tour will convey just a fraction of everything that this famed city means if you miss the chance of visiting its churches, more numerous than the days in the year. Apart from the Saint Peter’s Basilica in Vatican, with all its treasures that span over hundreds of years, the Santa Maria Maggiore and Saint Giovanni in Laterano basilicas are both reference points for every person interested in the history of Papacy and Catholicism or in the art of Renaissance and Baroque, both having been seats for papacy in the past. Regardless of whether you’re chasing the roots of Giacomo Puccini’s renowned opera La Tosca in Saint Andrea della Vale or you’ve always dreamed of standing on the Spanish steps below Trinita dei Monti, Rome’s churches will be the purest example of faith and power expressed through the most sophisticated achievements of art.

Depending on what you wish to learn and how much you want to see, a Rome bus tour can be scheduled ahead of time, with a professional guide full of fascinating stories in a bus promising more comfortable conditions, or it can be a hop-in/hop-off open bus tour than any tourist may spontaneously decide to take. If you’re perseverant, you’ll discover that many of the agencies providing the sightseeing Rome tour also offer significant advantages as far as the other tourist objectives are concerned, either in the form of discounts or skip-the-line tickets and if you ever had the chance of seeing the Colosseum or Vatican Museums queue, they will surely interest you.

Rome is a vast city, with a surface of approximately 1200 km2 and an equal surface of interesting things to see. If you are a hurrying tourist, with just a few days at your disposal for this unforgettable experience, than planning your itinerary in the most meticulous way possible will be your only chance of experiencing a spiritually satisfying trip. It’s easy to get lost, it’s easy to stagger. In this case, the Rome bus tour will be your aid in discovering as much as possible, but as with everything good, you’ll soon find yourself wanting more. You will return to Rome!

As a newly arrived tourist, the Rome bus tour is an ideal way of getting acquainted with the city, and after this primary introductions are done, you should take your chance with a more spectacular sightseeing Rome tour that unveils you some of the city’s better kept secrets.
