For first time travelers, the Hop-on Hop-off Rome City Bus Tour is the way to go. You can purchase a two day pass, and it conveni...ently takes you in all main attractions. We began our tour at the Vatican and expanded to the Castel Sant'Angelo. In the afternoon, we went to the Spanish Steps and Fontana Trevi. Next day we visited the Coliseum and the Roman Forum. Quick self guided audio's were available in several languages. It really takes about two days to visit all the main sites. I highly recommend it. It is convenient, quick, and a sure way to learn your way around Rome. Suggest staying on the upper deck to enjoy the majestic view's Rome has to offer. more
