With the summer and its boiling temperatures hitting hard in Rome, there is more than one reason to choose an open bus tour rather than a walking tour. Whereas a walking tour allows to discover hidden Roman gems such as fountains and churches, an open bus is more suitable to groups that are dealing with Rome for the first time. With its rental buses, My Tours in Rome covers the most important sights of Rome, so that customers can understand the historical patterns of the Eternal City.
– OUR BUSES HAVE ALL AIR CONDITIONED
It is seems a silly statement but how many times we have seen people hopping off buses that lack air conditioned? Many times ! Nothing is worst than sitting down and sweating while admiring the beauties of Rome. Our buses are clean, comfortable and have all A/C in the lower floor. They do not have air conditioned on the upper floor since the roof is missing and it is not needed. However, during the winter some of our buses can be covered like a convertible car and can also be heated when the temperatures are close to zero.
– MY TOURS IN ROME HAS MULTILINGUAL COMMENTARIES
Nobody can hop on a bus and stay passive during the sightseeing. Our buses are equipped with multilingual commentaries that lecture the main highlights of the history of Rome and sometimes force the driver to make a stop since some monuments are more important than others and have more history than others. Commentaries can instill confidence in a group that needs to know more about the capital of the Western Civilization.
– THERE ARE MORE THINGS TO SEE ON A BUS
Actually we would say that there is even more to see from a bus rather than on it. Why? Because the upper floor of the bus can help understand why some monuments of Rome are different one another. For example, only a bus that drives through Via dei Fori Imperiali can answer the question why the Roman Forum is so close to the modern white monument dedicated to the unknown soldier. If your travel company decides to hire our buses, your clients will also have an idea of the different walking levels that Rome had throughout the centuries. For example, did you know that ancient Romans used to walk 10 feet below our current level? A bus can give you an idea of that gap, if you face the Forum of Trajan or the Forum of Augustus.
– BUS TOURS CAN PREPARE FOR A MORE DETAILED VISIT
A bus tour, conducted especially at night, can be a good introduction to the glory of Rome and its past. On the bus with us you can see how the main cardinal points of Rome are linked together through the 4 main patriarchal basilicas; you can also ask yourself how the Tiber River played a role in determining the main food and construction supplies in Rome. If the bus stops in front of Saint Peter’s square for a few minutes, imagine how many treasures you can discover and appreciate if the day after you and your group decide to go to the Vatican ! The harmony and geometry of the colonnade of Bernini will entice more curiosity about the massive architecture of the Vatican’s prestigious buildings.
– BUS CAN GO VERY CLOSE TO YOUR HOTEL
Think about the logistics too. You have a large group and you are just arrived in Rome. You are scheduled for a night tour by bus and don’t know where to go. A bus can come get you and your group at the hotel and bring you back at the end of the visit. There is nothing more pleasant than seeing tired people being dropped off at the hotel and not left walking up and down the hills of Rome.
