Use your 48-hour ticket to skip-the-line any day of the week at top landmarks throughout Rome, including the Colosseum, the Vatican Museums, and the Sistine Chapel. Move between the sights quickly and easily on board a City Sightseeing double-decker bus.

Explore the city at your own pace to see the ruins of the Roman Forum, views from the top of Palatine Hill, and where gladiators fought on the arena floor of the Colosseum.

At the Vatican Museums, wander through the Hall of Maps, the Gallery of Tapestries, and the Raphael Rooms before lingering in the Sistine Chapel with its famous frescoes painted by Michelangelo.

Hop-on and hop-off the double-decker buses as many times as you wish during a 48-hour period.
