    Where to buy Roma Pass

    Roma Pass is available in every Tourist Infopoint around the city of Rome and on the official website (link to the website below).

    WARNING! The official Roma Pass website is NOT Safe

    Once entered, your personal and credit card data are NOT encrypted by the system. We hope that the Municipality of Rome will as soon as possible adapt to the existing regulations concerning online security ( as it recently happened for the ticketing system of the Colosseum, after our reporting)

    We then strongly advise you to buy your Rome Pass directly in one of the Tourist Infopoint around the city.

    Alert: Do not buy your pass from touristic promoters on the street! And  in any case not at a higher price than those indicated on the official website

    Our point of view

    The best offer for visiting Rome using public transports. But also the only one exisiting.

    If we compare the roman offer with other european capital offers, we can not admit that there is still so much to work on. In our opinion, it is indeed necessary to  start from this point in order to revive tourism in the eternal city.

    Public transports are few, traffic makes it difficult for the buses to transit and the underground routes are reduced are all true facts. Critical issues which are difficult to solve, anyway.

    But this does not mean that the over 20 millions turists visiting Rome per year 1 can not use various modern systems to get access to all the information in a smart way.

    Negative aspects

    Besides the critical aspect concerning the purchase, such as the website not being safe, the card not being refundable or no home delivery service provided, there are still other problems that we hope will be fullfilled as soon as possible by the municipality of Rome in order to get back more competitive than ever.

    Smartphone app

    It has become a standard action: the tourist downloads the app on his/her smartphone, enters the personal code and visualizes all the information concerning the pass in real time. Thanks to the app, the tourist can  access to special offers, see the museums open hours, dispaly the public transport situation and avoid the queue scanning a Qrcode.

    Some cities provide the possibility to plan you personal itinerary!

    Limited time-period

    Rome counts thousand of turist attractions. There are around 25 museums and archaeological sites that appear in the list matchable with the Roma Pass card.

    It is hard to think that a tourist might decide to visit the most important city of art in the world and be satisfied just with moving for free with public transports for two days and visiting two museums.

    It is very likely that he/she will be pushed to purchase other public transport subscriptions or other monuments and museum tickets.

    For example the “London Pass” or the “New York Pass” has different offers which can last until 10 days.

    Having said that, in the meanwhile the Municipality finds a better solution or optimizes its current offer, the Roma Pass remains a good solution that will allow tourist to save money. So purchase with trust, there are no other solutions.
