Five Reasons To Get A Rome City Pass

Rome wasn't built in a day, but if you plan to see it in three, you might want to consider getting a city pass. Here are five reasons why the investment is worth it!

Travel

Rome passes include a travelcard for public transport, so you needn't worry about lining up for tickets or trying to purchase them with your phrasebook Italian!

Free attractions

Get free entry to many of Rome's leading attractions, including the Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel, the Roman Forum, and the Colosseum. Discounts are available on many others.

Skip the lines

If free admission isn't enough, you'll also get fast-track entry to many museums and monuments. Don't waste time on lines during peak season - fit more into your itinerary!

Complimentary tour

First time in Rome? What better way to get the lay of the land than a hop-on hop-off bus tour, complete with audio commentary, at no extra cost?

Guide

Your Rome City Pass will come with a free guidebook and map. Depending on which pass you opt for, your city guide may also be available as an app!

Planning Your Visit

How many different city passes are there?

There are two Rome city cards available: the Roma Pass and the Omnia Pass. They offer similar benefits but with some slight differences. For instance, the Omnia Pass has a limit on how many attractions you can visit for free, but offers a physical city guide (rather than an app) as well as free audio guide hire at some museums. The Roma Pass offers a wider variety of attractions, so it's worth figuring out which works better for your itinerary.

Is it worth it?

Ultimately, this comes down to what and how much you want to see. Do you plan on using public transport a lot, visiting the main museums and attractions, and covering the tourist circuit with a bus tour? Then pre-book a Rome city pass.

What People Are Saying About Rome

skeeping the line is important, free transportation not

walking is much better than taking metro or bus, the metro is too far from the center. But, skeeping the que in the hot sun worth it all

Nice to skip the line. Hot and tiring with kids.

Glad we could skipped the lines. It was still a long, hot tiring journey with 2 kids.

It was perfect! Everything as we planned! It's really worth it!

You should always book before you reach there because it is just impossible to get in the attractions! Everywhere it is just fully packed!!! Never lasting queues!! So, you definitely skip the line and achieve your goal by means of their reps!

Fantastic skip the line entry into everything we wanted to see!

After some initial uncertainty I decided to book the Roma pass rather than book our tickets individually. Initially the information given on the website is not very good so I wasn't entirely sure which things were and were not included, or even how it worked. However when we went to pick up the pass they explained that you then book onto your vatican ticket time we we booked for the following day. When you meet for your time, the guide takes you around to the Vatican entrance skipping the line and then you are in and left to see it by yourselves. However the guide never really explained this, rather he just guided us in, beeped our passes and that was that!! It would have been nice even if they had explained a little about the process! Overall the pass was brilliant and we saw more than we would have done without it. Didn't intend to use the hop on bus tour, but used it as transport to get around when we had walked so much already! Hightly recommended on balance.

Smooth, VIP feel, treated with respect, welcome.

V useful, metro is simple to use, no Qjump on Wed @ Vatican or chapel, bus is great for an overview (idea) of city. Skip the que at colosseum, this does save alot of time especially if you have travelled far. Staff at card collection point V helpful, good value for money. Lots of churchs/public places are free entry and then charge for the extra bit, like the lift at della patria or lower level at St. Clement Basilica. Overall I'd recommend this. Hassle free holiday.
