Frequently asked questions about Rome City Cards

What are other things to do than City Cards that are worth visiting in Rome?

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

Overall rating

4.4 / 5

based on 2,530 reviews

The pass allowed us entrance to the attractions we wanted and easy travel around the city on the metro. Easy to use. The only confusing thing was the need to actually have the physical card (rather than just the online purchase) in order to book attractions. However we collected the card from the tourist information office immediately we arrived in Rome. The card was validated from its first use for a full 72 hours. A great buy.

great ticket. got us in everywhere we wanted with skip the line entrance, the lines were massive. very useful for transport when our feet had had enough

Kinda tricky to book tbh but it was really useful and a pretty good deal if you’re staying for a short time in Rome

It was so helpful coming for the day being able to get to see all the attractions was fun

All was very handy and organised very good. Very helpfull staff at the meeting point.
