City sightseeing in Rome: Big Bus Tours

City sightseeing in Rome: Big Bus Tours
February 26, 2019 Tom Clark

Two ancient sayings well epitomize some advice I would give to those who first visit the city of Rome, one of the mother cities of the Western world. The first of them warns: to know Rome, a life is not enough. Yes it’s true. Rome is so great, fantastic and full of details, that even some born Romans may not know it in its entirety. Rome is like a mysterious woman who slowly reveals herself. In this way, I have no intention of suggesting the best way to “know” this city. It’s no use advising you to spend four days, seven or a whole month. Rome will always have what to offer as a surprise next time.


Taking a sightseeing tour of Rome is a good idea to visit the city. A city sightseeing tour in Rome is a nice solution if you are in the capital for a hit and run weekend or just want to visit all of its incredible attractions while sitting comfortably and in fun way, especially if you intend to visit Rome with children. Among the various city sightseeing companies in Rome, Big Bus Tours is a valid choice. Here’s the Rome bus tours guide.
