    If you book your hop-on, hop-off tour on days when the Colosseum or the Vatican Museum is closed, you can choose an alternative date to visit these attractions.

    Rome is a functioning capital city and therefore political events, demonstrations and celebrations can disrupt the route at any time, especially during summer and at weekends. We suggest you to check the official website for the operational hours of all the attractions before your visit as it keeps changing according to the season or as per attraction authorities.
