    The travel was nice. Tho it feels like there should be at least 2 more stops added since some of the important attractions are far away from nearest stop (like between stop 6 Vatican and 7). The ticket is a super long print out. Can u go a little more environment friendly and save some paper? Why can't we have the ticket in the app? And the app was not very helpful when telling about each bus location. It was very laggy. A bus location was still for 15min and then suddenly the bus appeared on the map like it was right in front of me.

    If you are visiting Rome for only a couple of days, this is a must. You get to see all the famous attractions. I would recommend getting the 9am bus from the termini and doing the whole circle. Stay on the bus and get off at the Vatican for the 12noon walking tours. We managed to do 3 of the 4 walking tours which were all excellent

    This helped reduce the amount of walking we had to do which was great since we had a 9-year-old and our legs were already tired. Friendly staff and the walking tours were a nice option even though we never took advantage of them. The "night tour" they tout features the same "audio" guide that they run during the day -- it's just essentially one final lap with no hopping on or off. If they went a different route and/or had different audio, it'd be great. Since the Colosseum is the only "attraction" of note along the route, the only real benefit of the night tour is being able to go by it with the lights on. Finally, we bought the 3-day pass. We were in a hurry to get to the Pantheon for Sunday church service. In our rush, my wife forgot her ticket and our daughter's ticket. Our ticket was only good for a few more hours and if we had to go back to get it, we would have been late. They graciously let us on when I provided mine and explained what happened.
