Great way to see Rome in two days time. Buses stop within in easy walking distance to all the major site of Rome!

Can't beat the City Tour Hop on Hop Off. From the cruise port, we walked to the Port Vell pickup location, took Hop On Hop Off to Sagrada Familia for a tour and then back on the bus from there. Their stop is right across the street from Sagrada Familia.

Nice ride! Its just too cold yet to sit on the deck the early morning and late afternoon.

Stop 4 instructions were good, but there was a closer stop 5 which was nearer to embarkation. Again due to time restraint by cruise line only about 1/4 of West tour was completed, Cruise shore time restrictions was the most frustrating for us. Second time for hop on and hop off in Barcelona, more time was given in 2015, service is good and helpful, maps and earpieces provided. tks
