Where to buy the Roma Pass

The Roma Pass is available at all Tourist Infopoints in Rome, as well as on the ArcheoRoma website.

Our opinion

The best pass offer to visit Rome using public transport. But also the only one.

If we compare Rome’s offer with that of other European capitals, we realise that there is still a lot of work to be done. And yet, to relaunch tourism in Rome, it is necessary to start from here.

It is a fact that there are few means of transport, that traffic makes it difficult for buses to get around and that the metro routes are short. Critical issues that are difficult to resolve.

This does not mean that the more than 20 million tourists who visit the capital of art cities every year 1 cannot take advantage of modern systems of access to smart information.

Negative aspects

The ticket is non-refundable and there are no home delivery options, but there are other issues that we hope the City of Rome can resolve as soon as possible in order to become competitive again.

Smartphone apps

It has now become standard: the tourist downloads the app on his smartphone, registers his unique code and sees all the information about his subscription in real time. They can access special offers, museum opening times, view public transport routes and skip the queue by scanning a Qrcode.

Some cities even offer the possibility of planning your own itinerary!

Limited time period

Rome has thousands of tourist attractions. Just in the list of museums and archaeological parks that are chargeable and compatible with Roma Pass there are 25.

It is hard to imagine that a tourist visits the most important city of art in the world, maybe for one week, and is content to travel by public transport for three days and visit two museums.

Most probably he will be forced to buy additional tickets for public transport and additional entries to monuments and museums. It is no coincidence that the London Pass or the New York Pass are valid for up to 10 days.

That said, until the municipality releases a better solution or optimises the current offer, the Roma Pass is still a money-saving solution. Buy with confidence, there are no other solutions..
