It's a great way to discover the city. Boarding place at the main station was difficult to find. It was also very busy on the road and you had to wait a long time at traffic lights, felt a bit like a waste of time but of course they can't do anything about that.

This is a great way to get a grasp of the city in one day. However, the way the ticket works is confusing. I thought I would be able to hop on and off for a day, but it was just a 5 hour ticket for one loop around the city, which doesn’t make much sense. The audio guide was nice, but usually out of sync with the stops. I really like taking tour bus in new city, but maybe there are better companies in Rome to use.

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.
