Well organized, you can get on at any station. Some stops are a bit further from the sights so there is still a bit of walking to be done, but still a relief if you want to see a lot of sights in one day. Audio guide on the bus was great, you learn a lot of interesting things about the city.

We got on the bus to enjoy the 2 hour circuit around Rome center with the audioguide. The ticket was also valid for another bus line (forgot which one). It's a good way to relax a bit after extensive walking. The negatives: when we got into the bus and had our ticket validated the ticket lady forgot to give us earphones so we drove the first station without the audioguide. The other minor problem is that the route is fixed and one-way only, if you want to go the other way your best bet is to walk around instead of driving an hour in the opposite direction.

The touring buses could be followed live in the app. Headphones are provided free of charge when you first board the bus so that you can listen to the audio guide throughout the journey. Boarding and disembarking at all stops over several days is easy and uncomplicated. The route approaches all points of interest in such a way that you can walk to your destination in just a few minutes. When driving through, the entire tour takes about 2 hours in Roman traffic, which was great in the convertible compartment of the bus. You also get a QR code for a free app that offers an audio guide at the sights and can be listened to on the spot via cell phone. Recommended! :)
