Is it worth buying the Roma Pass?

For some years, Rome has been adapting to the standards of the main capitals of the world. For this, the city created the Roma Pass (the tourist card), promoted by the Government and the Ministry of Culture and Tourism, together with ATAC (Public Transport Agency of the City of Rome). But is it worth buying the Roma Pass? Read our post about the Roma Pass and get all the doubts out of your head! Stay with us and make the best of boot shaped country! Here at Your Travel to Italy with Ana Patricia you make the trip of your dreams!!! ALSO: see our “Accommodation in Italy – Tips for your holidays!”

1) Is it worth buying the Roma Pass? FIRST OF ALL: LET’S LEARN A LITTLE BIT MORE ABOUT THE ROMA PASS

The Roma Pass is a tourist-cultural card that offers discounts and services to tourists so that they can make the most of the wonders of Rome. The Roma Pass is available in two versions: Roma Pass 72 hours and Roma Pass 48 hours. The differences between them, essentially, are:

Roma Pass for 72 hours

The Roma Pass for 72 hours costs 52 Euros and offers: a visit to two museums (free choice between the available museums), free use of means of transport such as a local train, subway, bus, tram and discounts on tickets to other attractions. NOTE: the line that runs from/to Airports/Center DOES NOT ENTER IN THE FREE TRANSPORT OPTION. Check the exceptions HERE!

Roma Pass for 48 hours

The 48-hour Roma Pass costs 32 Euros and offers: visit to a museum, free use of transport such as local train, subway, bus and tram and discounts on tickets for other attractions. NOTE: the line that runs from/to Airports/Center DOES NOT ENTER IN THE FREE TRANSPORT OPTION. Check the exceptions here

Important

  • It is worth remembering that some museums DO NOT OPEN ON MONDAYS and on December 25th, January 1st and May 1st! So, before organizing your visit, check your travel dates. The “pass” will be released at the time of its validation, so I suggest you to do the validation in the morning, so that you can enjoy the day with the Roma Pass in hand.

2) Is it worth buying the Roma Pass? FIND OUT THE ROME PASS ATTRACTIONS

What can I do with the Roma Pass? Once the card is validated, you can start using it. There are more than forty museums, monuments and archaeological sites that are part of the Roma Pass circuit, among them are: Capitoline Museums, Planetarium, Ara Pacis, Montemartini, Coliseum, Borghese Gallery and Sant’Angelo Castle. It is also interesting to consider visits to the Borghese Gallery and also to the excavations of the Valentini Palace, with the Rome Domus (it is necessary to book in advance, even with the Roma Pass). I also remember that from March 2019 the Coliseum requires reservation even for those using the Roma Pass, so remember to book your visit date, ok?!

The card also allows you to travel free of charge on the public transport network of Rome (except the Shuttle service – shared transfer) to the capital’s airports, Fiumicino and Ciampino and the railway lines outside Rome.

How to use the Roma Pass?

  • You must fill the back of the card with your name, surname and validation date;
  • Activation starts counting at the first access where the Pass is used, that is: at the entrance to the chosen museum or on your first trip using public transport;

5) Is it worth buying the Roma Pass? UNDERSTAND THE ADVANTAGES AND DISADVANTAGES

For the convenience of not having to worry about buying public transport tickets all the time, yes, it is worthy! If we consider the price of tickets to museums, the savings will be more or less one euro in the option of the Roma Pass for 48 hours and more than 20 Euros in the Roma Pass for 72 hours! Do the math!

Roma Pass for 48 hours

The Roma Pass for 48 hours costs 28 Euros; if you choose to take the tour WITHOUT the Roma Pass consider the following:

  • Simulation to visit the Coliseum (which also includes the Roman Forum and the Palatine Museum). The ticket costs 14 Euros (buying in advance). Include public transport, which in this case will be the daily ticket to use all transport, which costs 7 Euros per day, or for two days: 12.50 euros. Then the total you’ll have is: 14 + 12.50 Euros = 26.50 Euros. Less 1.50 euros, plus time savings! And if you go to other attractions you will have direct discounts, so you will really start saving, depending on how many attractions you visit, you can save a lot!
Advantage of the Roma Pass 48 hours
  • You don’t have to wait in line to buy tickets.
Disadvantage of the Roma Pass 48 hours
  • There is no disadvantage, since you will spend the same amount, but you will improve your time and convenience to not face lines!

Roma Pass for 72 hours

The Roma Pass for 72 hours costs 38.50 Euros. If you choose to take the tour WITHOUT the Roma Pass consider the following:

Simulation:

The Coliseum (which is the must-see attraction in Rome and which includes the Palatine and Roman Forum) admission costs 14 euros. Leaving there, let’s assume that you want to visit Sant’Angelo Castle. The ticket costs 10 Euros. Then, taking advantage of the discounts, you decide to go to other Museums or attractions that are part of the Roma Pass circuit, saving at least 10 euros.

Include a three-day transport with the Rome 24h transport card, which costs 7 Euros per day, or the three-day ticket, which costs 18 Euros. Then you’ll have is: 14 + 10 + 18.50 = Total of 42.50 Euros. Savings: 04 euros! Then if you go to other attractions with discounts that are part of the circuit the savings can be more than 30 to 40 euros (depending on the attractions you choose!!).

Advantages of the Roma Pass for 72 hours
  • Savings 04 Euros, at least;
  • You will avoid lines at most attractions.
Disadvantage of the Roma Pass for 72 hours
  • There is no disadvantage, since you will save on the purchase of the Roma Pass and you will save time and convenience to avoid facing lines!

If you are traveling with children: don’t take risks, invest a little more and travel safely, comfortably and without worries or risks of ruining your long-awaited trip.

Hotel I suggest near the Historic Center

If you are passionate about art and would like to stay in the center where you can move around walking, as well as having countless possibilities for places to have lunch / dinner or a snack, I advise you to stay in the historic center. Regions near the Trevi Fountain, the Coliseum, the Roman Forum, the Imperial Forum and the Villa Borghese, Piazza Spagna and Piazza Navona can be considered as “historic center”. These are the most expensive areas, but you will be close to everything, literally!

If you want to save a great option is the B&B, click on the links below and get to know each one. If you like the suggestion make your reservation and guarantee good prices. ????

If you prefer a good hotel, I have three options that I really like, click on the links below and get to know each one. If you like the suggestion make your reservation and guarantee good prices;)

Hotels that I suggest near the San Giovanni Region

For those who want to find cheaper alternatives in quiet areas, but at the same time close to the means of transport to the center, I suggest the region of San Giovanni or Monti (near the metro stations San Giovanni, Castro Pretorio and Circus Massimo) – which it is a more residential neighborhood; therefore, more economical and quiet! And with just 15 minutes by subway you will be in the center too!

Hotels I suggest near Vatican City

An interesting area to stay and a little cheaper than the historic center is the Vatican area (Vatican Museums) which is very well connected with everything.

Hotel I suggest near Termini Station

For those who prefer to stay in neighborhoods that have good access to the rest of the city and at a better price, then you should choose accommodation in the surroundings of Termini Station (from where a dense network of public means of transport starts, serving both: the local people and tourists).

If you prefer B&B I have 2 good suggestions, click on the links below and get to know each one. If you like the suggestion make your reservation and guarantee good prices;)

Hotels that I suggest in Trastevere

For those who prefer to “taste” authentic and characteristic Rome, there is nothing better than booking a hotel in Trastevere (on the outskirts of the city’s historic river), full of typical Roman history and traditions, known for the tortuous streets of sampietrini stones and the centers medieval style housing.

The neighborhood is in the historic center and to the right of the Tevere River, in the midst of a spectacular landscape, where each visitor can observe the countless churches and squares (such as Santa Maria in Trastevere). In addition, this neighborhood offers several local restaurants and canteens for those who want to try typical Roman cuisine.
