How it works

The ticket is valid for 24, 48 or 72 hours from when you first use it. For example, if you purchase a 48-hour ticket and start using it on a Monday at 1pm, it is valid until Wednesday at 1pm.

While your ticket is valid, you can hop off and back on as many times as you wish. For instance, if you want to visit the Colosseum, hop off at Colosseo, take your time to visit all the landmarks near the bus stop and then wait for the next bus and get back on and hop off again at another stop you want to explore.


You can use the ticket 15 days prior to the date you choose when you make the online reservation.
