Highly recommend this is a must when visiting Rome and this bus only not the other 1s you can use I would wait definitely on the big bus you get them up and earphones just sit back and listen and orientate yourself on your first day then the rest of your days you can organise where to get on and off and what you want to see

Brings you to several attractions around Rome. Round trip depending on traffic etc would be up to 1hr 30 (give or take) Buses run roughly every 20 minutes. I would at least recommend doing a day trip ticket or two. It's useful to get your bearings for Rome and then walking around doesn't seem as daunting.

Great bus tour, my only gripe is that it says it start at 9am so I was using it to get to the Vatican for a guided tour at 11am, the tour didn't start till 9.40 which meant we were late. please amend your brochure to advise start is approx 9.30am and not 9am. apart from that it's a great way to see Rome, all the guides I came across were really nice and very helpful. I bought 3 day ticket
