Very good this bus, just to find it when arriving from the Vatican go to the castle saint angel and cross the bridge. All buses have a stopping point here We used it both days. In addition to explaining the city to us, it allowed us to recover because a lot of walking about 15 km per day

The tour is good but when you get dropped off it can be a long walk to museums especially the Vatican. There should be a nearer stop to the Vatican cos you get dropped off near the bridge. If you wanna go to Vatican museums its a 20 minute walk.

It was fortunate for us to be in a very small group, the guide was able to talk to us already close around us. It also involved the children, with jokes or anecdotes of our path told directly to them, so as to entice them to be careful. Very nice and very well prepared, you can see that in addition to all the notions he also knows how to take people, really engaging. By ourselves we would have limited ourselves to a walk in the Palatine Hill and we would have missed a lot of things. The Colosseum is a spectacle, full of curiosity. Highly recommended tour
