This series of posts called “on your own” lists some attractions or tours you can plan during your Roman holiday without the help of a tour guide.
We are perfectly aware the services of a private tour guide are expensive, moreover we believe it is very exciting to be strangers in a new city and to explore it on your own, once you have received some first instructions and background information.
The bus ride though the Vatican Gardens is a brand new opportunity just started in 2011. These Gardens are famous since the time of the Renaissance and it has always been hard to obtain the access . Now the Vatican City is selling a ticket for a 30′ ride onboard of an electric bus. It is an “art and nature” safari available every morning, but wednesdays and religious holidays (i.e. all sundays), from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. every 30 minutes.
The cost is 15 euros for a 30′ drive. You can find all relevant info here . Enjoy the ride!
