I know that almost nobody likes these buses, but I admit to being tourist enough to like to get on one and ride around the city on my first afternoon in town. I don't even feel the need to hop off, just like sitting on top and riding around, getting my bearings. We will be staying near the Piazza del Popolo, so a convenient stop would be nice.
Since I was last in Rome, there are a number of choices. Considering that what I really want to do is just ride around, anybody have an opinion/comment for me? I know about the electric minibuses, but again, I sure like that up-in-the-air feeling and even a bit of lame commentary :-)
