    Good need to work hard

    Ticket prize is the best than others however bus not stopping at no 1 stop i.e Vaticano. So stop 2 is the option however it's a long walk to see the famous Saint Peter square. Also too many stops and a long wait at rome termini station, why would customer suffer and what would customer at termini station for a long time, it's a complete waste of time
