When in Rome: Roma Pass 2009

This Rome information blog is written for guests of the Chaplin B&B or the Hostel Little Italy Rome.

Also in 2009 the Roma Pass, a combined museum- and public transportation pass for the city of Rome, will be an excellent option for tourists in Rome, albeit slightly costlier than before. From 20 Euros the price of the Roma Pass will move to 23 Euros.

The Rome Pass consists of two separate passes that need to be validated separately, although on the same date. Beware: the pass is only valid until midnight of the 3rd day, so not for 72 hours as in other European capitals.

With the public transportation part of the Roma Pass you are therefore allowed to use Rome’s public transportation system (metro, bus and tram) for free for 3 days from the moment you validate the card.

The museum pass allows you free entrance to the first 2 museums or monuments of Rome and gives you a reduced price for admission to the tourist attractions you visit afterwards (as long as this is within the 3 day time limit).

The Rome museum pass is not valid for the Vatican Museums, while the Colosseum, the Roman Forum and the Palatine Hill together count as one visit.

You need to fill out your full name and date of birth on both pass and you also need to show some sort of internationally valid ID upon request.

The Rome Pass can be obtained from most tourist information points in Rome.
