Roma Cristiana is at the moment one of no less than five 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 has a unique identity and heritage that is distinctive from all the other competing tours.
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 as you would suspect with their ownership.
The key aspect in terms of coverage is that Roma Cristiana as well as covering all the key major tourist hotspots of the Roman Forum, Colosseum, Vatican etc, go further out with additional stops for some religious sites notably the Basilica di San Giovanni, the cathedral church of Rome and the official seat of the Bishop of Rome (the Pope).
A modern audio-guide system in 8 languages (Italian, English, Spanish, French, German, Russian, Portuguese, Japanese) describe for you every stop of the way, along with the sites most interesting from a religious, historical, artistic and cultural point of view.
There is 1 route with 14 stops that covers most of the centre of Rome.
In addition to 24-, 48- and 72-hour duration tickets there is also a day ticket valid for one calendar day and 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 9am and 6pm.
These are the fully flexible traditional tickets that give unlimited rides on the hop-on, hop-off sightseeing buses for a 24-hour or 48-hour period. Day tickets are valid for one calendar day so if you start at any time the ticket expires that same evening.
A cheaper ticket option that is one circuit of the hop on, hop off route enabling a couple of hours to get orientated with the city of Rome before you strike out independently.
You still get full access to the informative audio guides that will give you a basic briefing on the main tourist icons passed as well as perhaps introducing you to some that you were not aware off.
First departure: 9am (Termini Station), 9.25am (St Peter's Basilica).
Last departure: 6pm (Termini Station), 6pm (St Peter's Basilica).
Frequency: Every 10-15 minutes
