Enjoyable. A shame that the tour bus was not stopping at a marked stop outside the Teatro Massimo, which we discovered after nearly an hour of waiting.

1 star rating: I do not recommend this August 2015

There were street vendors selling discounted tickets which made a line of hundreds just to get on the bus. We waited for hours!
