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
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.
My friend and I had regrettably decided to purchase tickets for the attractions in Rome when we arrived in the city. We ended up choosing the Rome All Access tour for €85 per person as we had no other cheaper option available. The tour at Vatican City itself was great and our tour guide on Friday 12 July at 1:30pm was exceptional and I thoroughly enjoyed the day as well Thursday at the Colosseum. The only aspect we both would complain about is the service we received at both the Tourisation offices as we were never given the correct or full information we needed. On both occasions, the addresses we were given were not correct to find the ticket offices even though we asked the staff numerous times to confirm. On both days we were late for our selected tour slots due to being directed elsewhere on Google Maps with the address provided to us and giving ourselves about an hour to find the ticket office.
The pass gives you access to all the areas mentioned. Although the ticket for Forum Romanum and the Palatine hill is one area so the ticket does not give you something extra. The colosseum can be accessed at a fixed time slot so you will have to make a reservation when you pick up your ticket at the local office. The same can be said for the Vatican museum. You get a time slot for when you want to enter this area. Although the Vatican museum and the Sistine chapel are the same ticket. And if you go to the right in the Sistine chapel and not the left side where they want you to leave the hall. You can go straight into the Sint Pieters basilicas without showing your ticket. So make sure you plan the entrance of the Colosseum and the Vatican museum. And at none of the locations I got an audio tour so that was a bit disappointing.
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.
Good for use in Vatican city and for seeing a few of the key Rome tourist places but two things about the bus. Firstly, the route needs to be bigger or run a second circuit. Secondly, the bus stops are really unclear when you are in the street looking for it. The staff on the buses are exceptionally friendly, polite and helpful. The 'inclusives' for site visits are good. Value for money? Probably.
