"Archeobus Guided Bus Tour" submitted by RomeTour Editorial Team and last updated on Wednesday 11th January 2012
Discover the wonderful treasures of the ancient Appian Way by bus. Like the 110 Open, the Archeobus departs everyday(including holidays), every 20 minutes from Cinquecento Square (from 9:00 to 16:00) and it stops at the most famous Roman archaeological sights along the Appian way (Circo Massimo, Mura Aureliane, San Callisto and San Sebastiano catacombs, Tempio di Romolo, Circo di Massenzio, Mausoleo di Cecilia Metella, Villa dei Quintili, Mausoleo di Casal Rotondo, Valle della Caffarella, Baths of Caracalla, etc). You'll get a brochure that'll tell you 58 things you can do on the archeobus, but it may not list the stops.
Daily departures from Piazza San Marco (Piazza Venezia), every hour from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm, in winter and from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm in summer. New 16-seat buses and on board assistance. Tickets are valid for the whole day and may be purchased on board € 7.75.
It takes 1,45 h for the non stop tour, but it is the stop'n'go formula that allows you to hop off at any stop along the route, visit the most important and interesting sites nearby and then hop back on one of the following buses running that day. Tickets have daily validity and Stop&Go formula that allows you to hop on/off at any of the stops all day long. Buy your ticket on line, on board, at our info box in Piazza dei Cinquecento (Termini Railway Station) or Piazza del Colosseo and at Trambus Open authorized dealers. On board, free distribution of the official map of the Municipality of Rome and disposable earphones.
