We started our holiday with the hop-on-hop-off bus, which was great because we could see quite a lot of sights already and get an idea of where everything is and how far. Since we started our trip on monday in the Covid period, we were the only ones on the bus for a while, so we could sit all the way in the front where you have a great view. The bus itself was neat, the stops are marked rather clear and the people working with this company were super friendly. We recommend getting your tickets activated at Termini, because at the Colosseum you have to walk quite a bit to the next stop. Also we recommend bringing your own earphones/headset since you can just plug them in with an aux cable, though they do have earphones in the bus. The audio tour is ok, but sometimes its not synced to where the bus is situated, because the traffic can be quite tricky, so you're also fine not listening to the guide. The app that comes with the tickets provides some more walking tracks which are nice!

It is an easy and at the same time constructive way of transportation because you see the sights and from the headphones you learn what everything is and it is very convenient that you can get off at any stop and get up again after as long as you want so you save the means of transport

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.
