Did not really get a chance to utilise the bus. The bus stop near Piazza Venezia was not very clear initially. Had to WhatsApp Get your Guide to get the proper stations. Covers the key attractions. I do not think there is a big difference between this bus (Gray Line) and the other bus tours such as Green Line and Big Bus.

Just look for the pink bus! They were easy to spot coming. They stop at the bus stations every 30 mins, so if you just want to hop off for something quick, it’s easy to do. The staff was friendly and we enjoyed riding up top in the open air. I would suggest knowing exactly where their bus stops are before you go to Rome. They only have 8 stops and there are pink signs at their stops so you know they’ll be stopping there. Enjoy!

We had an 11 hour lay-over in Rome and found this the most effective way to experience Rome with the time that we had available. Rome is packed with people by foot and we managed to see much more of Rome than we would have had otherwise. Pity that they do not open the roof - according to the guide they are not allowed to do so. Would have been able to take better pictures with the roof open.
