The only reason we used this bus was because we wanted to go to the Appian Way which would have cost alot by taxi. We paid €20 each at Terminini so that we could hop on/hop off and had not prebooked. Sitting outside was good fun with excellent views but, although the conductor was pleasant and when we got on and she gave us earphones, there was no instruction on how to use them and no checking that we had fastened the seat belts. Indeed we needn't have bothered as none of the earphone sockets we tried on two buses worked. Needless to say the conductor remained in the drivers compartment for the whole of both journeys. We passed some very interesting buildings on the way but make sure you have your own guidebook and follow your map (none were provided) otherwise you will learn nothing. We got off at the last Appian Way stop and had a really pleasant short walk on the cobblestones. The next bus arrived on time to return us to Terminini. The way to use this bus is for the whole day but not for the sights in central Rome which are largely within walking distance. Travel out and alight at the catacombs for the morning. Then hop on and get off at the final stop on the Appian Way. There is a restaurant there for lunch which looked good (we did not have enough time time visit) and then in the afternoon you can walk along the Way into the countryside of ancient Rome. I think there are also cycles to hire there but it would be a bone shaking ride! Overall it was worthwhile to get outside Rome but if you are expecting an informative tour you will be disappointed.
