Rome is without doubt one of the most beautiful cities in the world and offers amazing opportunities for exploring its art and architecture treasures. When visiting Rome consider buying the Roma Pass which allows you free entrance to city attractions, free public transport and various discounts on events and exhibitions throughout the Rome.
The Roma Pass includes free entrance to the first (Roma Pass 48 hours) or first two (Roma Pass 72 hours) visited museum or sight, discounts on entrance fees to all other museums or sights, unlimited use of public transportation in Rome (buses, metro, trams and suburban trains), over 80 discounted tickets for exhibitions and events in Rome. Leonardo Express, the train that runs from Fiumicino airport to Termini Station is not covered by the Roma Pass.
The Roma Pass comes with a great map of Rome, that shows even the outer lying areas and many archeological sites you may wish to visit. The map included a metro map of Rome, a map of the sites along the Appia Antica and a map of Ostia Antica. You also get a booklet of any current exhibits or events which offers a discount to holders of the pass.
The most important aspect of the Roma Pass is that it allows you to skip the line into the Colosseum and Castel Sant'Angelo. The lines to get into both sites are usually very long and the wait can take over an hour. Admittance to the Forum and Palatine Hill is included admittance to the Colosseum.
The other major sites covered by this card are Borghese Gallery, Baths of Caracalla, Trajan's Market, Capitoline Museums, Ara Pacis, Baths of Diocletian, Villa Giulia - Etruscan Museum, Palazzo Massimo alle Terme, Galleria Nazionale d'Arte Moderna, Palazzo Barberini, Palazzo Venezia, Galleria Spada, Museum di Roma etc.
The Roma Pass can be purchased at all participating museums and sites, tourist information points of the city of Rome, ATAC - metro ticket offices and Trenitalia ticket offices. There are Rome Tourist Information Points at both Fiumicino and Ciampino Airport and also at Termini and Tiburtina train stations.
You can easily and securely buy the Roma Pass on this web site through Tiqets service. You must collect the Roma Pass card from one of the Tourist Info Points in Rome by showing your smarthpone voucher and a valid ID.
The card is valid for 48 hours/72 hours and is activated on your first entry to the museum/site or at the first journey on public transport up until midnight of the second or third day.
If visiting Vatican Museums & Sistine Chapel consider buying OMNIA Vatican and Rome Card which allows you free entry to these sights along other discounts.
If you plan to visit all the main museums and sights of Rome in three days then buying a Roma Pass Card may be worth it. Best value would be the 3-day Roma Pass which costs €36 and gives you free travel on public transport, plus free access to two sights and discounts on others. Another adventage of the pass is that it allows you to avoid long queues at ticket offices.
But note that Roma Pass does not cover sights owned or run by the Vatican - including the Vatican Museums & Sistine Chapel, the dome of Saint Peter's and Roma Christiana open-top bus tours. These are included on the Omnia Vatican & Rome Card which costs €55 (24-hour OMNIA Card ) and €113 (72-hour OMNIA Card).
