City Sightseeing ® for schools



Our open top buses are the ideal solution for those students who visit Rome for the first time, but also for those ones who already know Rome and want to get it from a whole new perspective!

On board our open buses kids will enjoy a unique view over the city, comfortably sat on the bus, and they will have fun learning its history and curiosities thanks to the audio guide.



Our double-decker open top buses have about 70 seats (about 50 on the upper deck and the rest on the lower deck).

Even if the buses are “open top” many of the vehicles have a retractable canopy that covers the upper deck in case of rain or summer heat.

On board there is a qualified and english speaking bus assistant ready to accommodate the students and to assist them during the tour.

On board there is an audio guide available in 8 languages (ITA-ENG-SPA-FRA-GER-RUS-CHI-JAP) that students can hear through earphones. It is included in the price.

On board it is also available free Wi-fi.



Our goal is to promote the history and culture of Rome through the audio guide, allowing the students to listen to the information about the monuments while the bus passes in front of them. In this way the direct experience of the city makes kids have fun and get more curious about Rome’s history and culture.



The bus route is approximately 1.40 h. and as you can see on the map near Termini train station there are 3 Terminals (Terminal A, B and C) from which buses leave every 10-20 minutes depending on the season. The stops, including terminals, are 10 and all close to the main attractions of the city:

- Terminal A (Via Marsala # 7 – Termini station)

- Terminal B (Largo di Villa Peretti 1 – Piazza della Repubblica)

- Terminal C (Piazza dei Cinquecento, corner of Via Cavour – Termini station)
