Enjoy fast-track entry to Rome’s historic sites, such as St. Peter’s Basilica, the Vatican Museums, and the Colosseum, with a 3-day combined city…
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!
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!
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!
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?
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!
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.
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
The Roma Pass does not give access to the Vatican Museum or St. Peter's Basilica. The website says it does, but this is only for the Omnia Pass. So we were disappointed.
Bypassing the line at the Colosseum and Roman Forum was by far the best. Once you see the lineup, it almost makes you not want to go in - but the pass made it all worth it. The metro is a easy to take and will get you around Rome in no time. Highly recommend.
Highly recommend you book ahead with omnia - getting a seat on the yellow buses was so worth it and no queueing
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
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.
