We bought the 48 hours ticket with a skip the line ticket at the Colosseum. It was so convenient. Knowing where the stops are, we were able to plot our itinerary for the day. But...Marie Alo, Canada, 19/May/2018

We couldn't get in with this ticket until a later time, but when it was time, we just went in a different entrance, and did not have to stand in that very long line, and that was great.
Easy to get to, fun experience.
Bus stops a little further away from attractions than I anticipated.
