Great way to see the city. Bus stops are easy to find as well as the offices. Great deal. Worth skipping the line at the Vatican saved a hour.

Well worth taking around Rome. You will find there are 3 pick up locations around the Roma Train Station at Via Marsala 7, at Largo di Villa Peretti, and at Piazza dei Cinquecentro. There is only a small bus stop sign at pickup location I asked a random ticket vendor for the location.
We also purchased the Skip-the-line for the Colesseum, Forum and Palatine Hill, well worth it again, but the process needs to be explained. Found out later, the first bus should have given us an information flyer.
When you get on your first bus they will issue you your hop on/off paper ticket. They will also give you a paper receipt for the skip-the-line: When you get to the colesseum, go to the left of the Arch of Costantino, there is a ticket booth line-up, where you have to exchange you paper receipt for an actual pass card. There are still line-ups at the Colesseum, but there are people in skip-the-line vests, ask them where to go there are 3 entrance areas. We did not have to wait in line from then on, until the security check.
At the Forum, there is a line of skip-the-line people. Keep to the right along the wall.
We also downloaded Rick Steeves Audio Europe, before leaving home. Enjoy!!
Also, the three locations should be visited concurrently.
