Buy a ticket from the ticket office prior to boarding and cancel it in the machine at the rear of the bus. The journey takes about an hour and goes via Castel Gandolfo traversing Lake Albano before ascending to Rocca di Papa. Ask the driver for Via dei Laghi, Convento di Palazzola and the bus may stop near the top of the drive, HOWEVER THE OFFICIAL BUS STOP IS AFTER THE ROUNDABOUT BEFORE TURNING UP TO ROCCA DI PAPA (about 20 minute walk)
