It's a beautiful route, especially in the first part, then starting from Piazza del Popolo you can't see the different destinations up close, but you pass by. So I recommend getting off and seeing everything on foot. The staff of this line is very kind, the coach is new and the audio guide is well structured. As a cost it is more convenient than others and offers the same services.

Made all the sightseeing easier after getting the card. There was a little confusion about where to get the physical ticket but their help chat really helped a lot. If you are planning to use public transport, get this.

We did this bus tour at the very beginning of our stay to discover the city. The objective was perfectly achieved. Unfortunately the audio guide was not working. We remained on our hunger.

Very practical and great value for money. Just be aware of the guidelines for use, several places require prior reservation on a specific website

Great job! We visited Colloseum and the next outside museum for free.
