Do you know the Hop On Hop Off Bus? The perfect choice for every kind of tourist

Whether you’re a organization maniac or a relaxed vacationer, you will definitely love the City Sightseeing Bus Tour

Not all tourists are the same. We all have a different concept of travelling and when we’re on vacation or just out for the weekend, we do have unique expectations and needs. One of the most common kind is the relaxed tourist looking for a peaceful holiday. What distinguishes it from the others are the trend of “taking it easy” and the improvisation linked to the moment: its peculiarities are a free mind and lack of programming. On the contrary, antagonistic by nature, there’s the super organized tourist, precise and impeccable, who fights the panic from the “I will never make it to see everything” with a perfect planning of the entire holiday itinerary, including timetables.

If you see yourself in some of the features of these two kinds of tourists, we have good news for you! There’s a tourist service that puts everyone in agreement: it's the City Sightseeing Bus with Hop-On-Hop-Off service. Let's find out what it is.


We bet that the Hop On Hop Off Bus is the one you were looking for.

It’s more than a public transport, more than a guided tour of the city. The City Sightseeing Bus is the big red tour bus with commentary on board that guides you through the beauties of the best Italian cities. The bus runs with the Hop On Hop Off service, a term that indicates the “up and down tour”. The ticket in fact, provides an open formula thanks to which you can get on and off whenever you want, at any bus stop, for the entire duration of the ticket validity.

If you fall into the perfect and organized type of tourist, we know what you are thinking! Why should I opt for a Sightseeing Bus Tour of the city, if I could safely walk or use public transportation?

Wrong! Maybe you don’t realize that the City Sightseeing service is what you were looking for, to perfectly match your itinerary program. Our “up and down” tourist Bus is not just a means of transport, but the key to visit the city you have chosen. By downloading the free Sightseeing Experience App you’ll have real-time updates on the position of the bus and its waiting time at each stop, in order to perfectly plan even the smallest movement. In addition, the City Sightseeing App offers you a guide dedicated to the walking tour, with an unprecedented commentary based on what you would listen aboard. Our big red bus tours are at a very high frequency, a nice advantage considering that you love programming!

This kind of tourism doesn’t it reflect you at all and you love feeling more free? Then thr Sightseeing Bus Tour, comfortably seated, is what's right for you. You will be able to see all the main points of interest in total relaxation and to decide freely what to visit in detail. Aboard the new red touring coaches you’ll have the commentary with information and curiosities and free WiFi, as well as the availability of a multilingual, friendly and knowledgeable staff. With City Sightseeing the bus tour becomes comfortable and easy even for families and seniors.


The Panoramic Bus Tour, as well as being versatile, also allows you to save money

Whatever your type of ideal holiday is, our open bus tour is the one that suits you best. If you come on board our buses or boats with any City Sightseeing ticket (purchased in Italy or the rest of the world), you automatically get a 10% discount on the City Sightseeing Hop On Hop Off Service that interests you. If you want to save time and be ready to board, we suggest you buy the ticket online. On our website, the discount becomes even cheaper: you can take advantage of 10% on the second ticket added to the cart and 15% from the third ticket onwards.

Obviously the Hop On Hop Off Service of every Italian city - as it happens for every type of tourist - has particular characteristics. The fil rouge (it is appropriate to say it!) which sums up our work is the service quality: from the transport type we use to our staff quality, you’ll get only the best! In the city of Venice, for example, ours is the only true “up and down” service, which allows you to do a real Hop On Hop Off Tour of the lagoon: the new scenic boats have a covered area, WiFi and USB ports for charging smartphones.
