The Roma Cristiana Tour Bus - An Alternative To City Sightseeing With A Difference

Roma Cristiana Rome Hop On Hop Off Open Top Sightseeing Bus

Roma Cristiana
Rome Sightseeing Bus

A direct competitor to City Sighteeing (and all the other hop on, hop off sightseeing buses in Rome is Roma Cristiana). At first sight the Roma Cristiana bus is easily mistaken for a “me too” imitation of all the others, but there is slightly different accent on the tour provided ...


However, Roman 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, Colosseum, Vatican etc but also venture out with 3 additional stops to City Sightseeing enabling visits to extra religious attractions the main one being Basilica di San Giovanni, the cathedral church of Rome and the official seat of the Bishop of Rome, who is the Pope. Other hop on, hop off sightseeing buses do not come here.
