We enjoyed the ride and the audio guide as we got to see and hear about main sights around Rome while giving our feet a rest. We got the 48 hours access which helped us get around to the meeting points of our other tours instead hailing a cab or walking.

Nice leisurely tour around the most famous of Rome’s many historical and architectural sites, with a pretty good explanation/discussion as the bus moved. Several buses on the route, but the lines were really long, and this was a weekday in October - what is it like in July or August? Still worth the time, and not expensive.

Pickup point easy to locate. Very good audio narration. great value, and excellent option to take this bus to familiarize yourself with all important sights of Rome for 1st time visitors like us. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour so much so that we stayed onboard the bus for a 2nd go around so that we didn”t miss anything. Highly recommend,
