      Roma Pass includes museums and archaeological sites located in the area of the City of Rome and public transportation within Rome’s railway ring (zone A).

However, from the third admission onwards (Roma Pass) or from the second admission onwards (Roma Pass 48 hours), you must wait on line, because you must purchase a reduced price ticket at the ticket window.

      If a person accompanying a Roma Pass or a Roma Pass 48 hours card holder is entitled to free admission (and therefore does not need to buy a Roma Pass), he/she should still get a free ticket and thus line up at the ticket office.

      Please note: at the Colosseum, there is a special turnstile that allows card holders to access the monument without waiting in line. A person entitled to gratuity accompanying a Roma Pass or a Roma Pass 48 hours card holder, in order to enter the monument, should get a free ticket. He/she could have access to the site using the reserved/groups entrance, thus avoiding the long queue. The same applies to card holders who want to visit the Colosseum as a reduced-price-admission (from the third admission onward for Roma Pass or from the second admission onwards for Roma Pass 48 hours).

    4. Are the Vatican Museums part of the network of museums that can be visited with the Roma Pass and/or Roma Pass 48 hours?

      For the full list of museums and archaeological sites included in the Roma Passand in theRoma Pass 48 hours, please visit the MUSEUMS section. For events, please visit the EVENTS AND SERVICES section.

    6. If there is an exhibition held at the museum, is it included in the admission?

    7. Is there a way to check how many times my Roma Pass or Roma Pass 48 hours has been used?

      Yes. The Card works on a RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) system that can be read at the ticket windows of the museums affiliated with the circuit or the Tourist Information Points (PIT). Simply ask the ticket-window operator to check the state of the card, to find out how many entries have already been made and how many sites have been visited.

    8. Can the validity of the Roma Pass and/or Roma Pass 48 hours be extended?

      No, that is not possible.

      Roma Pass expires at midnight on the third day, including the day of activation.

      Roma Pass 48 hours expires after 48 hours from the moment of activation.

      If a day included in the card validity period (3 days for Roma Pass, 48 hours for Roma Pass 48 hours) corresponds to closing day of museums / sites, the card validity cannot be extended. In example, if the card is activated on a Saturday, it will be valid until midnight on Monday (Roma Pass) or for 48 hours from the moment of activation (Roma Pass 48 hours).

      Please keep in mind that most museums and archaeological sites in Rome are closed on Mondays, December 25th, January 1st and May 1st and on other dates chosen by public authorities. Therefore, it is never possible to extend the cards duration on the claim that the card was unusable on a Monday, or on December 25th, January 1st, May 1st or other special closing days (see also FAQ 3.1).

    9. What is a combined entry arrangement? Which museums and/or archaeological sites have combined entry arrangements?

      A combined entry arrangement is the possibility to visit a group of museums (circuit) using a single entry of your Roma Pass or Roma Pass 48 hours. This is the case, for example, with the Colosseum (where admission includes the Colosseum and the archaeological area of the Roman Forum/Palatine Hill).

      Entrance includes any exhibition being held at the time of the visit, if the museum / site is included within first two you choose to visit (Roma Pass) or the first one you choose to visit (Roma Pass 48 hours).

      Museums and/or archaeological sites with combined entry are:

      • COLOSSEUM (ANFITEATRO FLAVIO): Colosseum, Roman Forum and Palatine Hill;
      • APPIA ANTICA: Mausoleum of Cecilia Metella and Castrum Caetani, Baths of Caracalla and Villa of the Quintili;
      • MACRO: Macro and Macro Testaccio;
      • VILLA TORLONIA MUSEUMS: Casina delle Civette and Casino Nobile;
      • NATIONAL MUSEUM of ROME: Crypta Balbi, Palazzo Altemps, Palazzo Massimo, Baths of Diocletian;
      • PLANETARIUM: Planetarium and Museum of Astronomy.
    10. When the ticket used for a combined entry is valid for more than a day, can it be used during the three days in which the Card is valid?

      Yes. One of the museums included in the combined entry arrangement can be visited on the first day that the Roma Pass and/or Roma Pass 48 hoursare activated. Then the other sites included in the combination can be visited during the remaining days.

      In example, with the admission ticket to the Colosseum, the three sites included in the entry can be visited on two different days (within 36 hours). Therefore, if the Colosseum is chosen either as one of the first two sites visited for free, or as one of the sites visited at a reduced price ticket, then the archaeological area of the Roman Forum and the Palatine Hill can be visited on the following day, as long it falls within the card’s period of validity. In the meantime, the card can be used to visit other sites of your choice.

      PLEASE NOTE: the Roman Forum and the Palatine Hill are located in the same archaeological area and count as one admission, therefore if you use the pass to get in once, it cannot be used again for the same site/area (see also FAQ 2.5).

    11. What if someone in my group doesn’t need to buy the Roma Pass or Roma Pass 48 hours? Can he /she avoid queuing?

      If one is entitled to free admission (and therefore does not need to buy a Roma Pass or a Roma Pass 48 hours), he/she can have access to the museum and/or archaeological site with the Roma Pass holder, avoiding the queue, where permitted.

      At the Colosseum, the person entitled to gratuity, in order to enter the monument, should get a free ticket. He/she could have access to the site using the reserved/groups entrance, (avoiding the long queue at the ordinary ticket office), only if accompanied by the Roma Pass (or Roma Pass 48 hours) holder.

      At the other museums he/she should always line up at the ticket office. If someone is entitled to a reduction of the entrance fee, he/she must buy the ticket at the Ticket Office. The same applies to the Roma Pass (or Roma Pass 48 hours) holders who wish to use their card from the third museum and/or archaeological site onward (see also FAQ 1.3).

    12. What if the card doesn't work?

      Any malfunction of the card can be verified at the Tourist Information Points (PIT), which are also the only ones that can replace a broken card. Please note that the card is not refundable for any reason.

  3. Museums opening time, free entrances and reductions
    1. Are the museums and/or archaeological sites closed on certain days of the week?

      As a rule, the museums and archaeological sites that are part of the Roma Pass and Roma Pass 48 hours circuit are CLOSED ON MONDAYS, except for the Colosseum and Terme di Caracalla. Almost all the museums are usually closed on December 25th, January 1st and May 1st . Please check the official webpage of the museums and the other sites on the circuit to get updated information on special closings and/or opening hours scheduled during the year.

      Therefore, it is never possible to extend the cards duration on the claim that the card was unusable on a Monday, or on December 25th, January 1st, May 1st or other special closing days (see also FAQ 2.4).

    2. When is it not worthwhile to purchase the Roma Pass and/or the Roma Pass 48 hours and are there concessions for diversely able visitors and students?

      Please note: fees refer to the ordinary admission fees of the museums; during cultural events and exhibitions, the price of tickets may vary.
