The services included in the Rome City Pass can be used/visited once in any order during the validity period of your City Pass. You can use Rome public transport as much as you like during the validity period. Please carry an official photo ID (e.g. identity card, passport, driving licence) for identification purposes.

With public transport & airport: With the Rome City Pass with public transport & airport, your public transport ticket for Rome is already included and can be used immediately. It guarantees you use of the public transport in the city center area and travel from/to the two largest airports (Fiumicino and Ciampino). The validity of your public transport ticket begins when you validate it for the first time at a vending machine before departure, and it is valid for the number of days or hours you have booked. Further information can be found here.

Children and teens: Please note that children and young people under the age of 18 need a proof of age (passport or identity card) sometimes so that they can enter certain attractions free of charge. In public transport, one child under 10 years of age must be accompanied by one adult to travel without a ticket. You will receive all information and useful hints together with your pass. Children and teens do not have to pay admission to the Colosseum and the Colosseum does not offer reservations for them. For free entry to the Colosseum, a free ticket is required for visitors under 18 years, which can only be obtained locally. You will find further information on how to obtain a free ticket in the appendix of your pass under "Colosseum".

If you deselect the free and preferential entry to the Vatican, you will save €21 per adult, €12 per teenager/child. Please observe the dress code for visiting the Vatican and wear clothing that covers your knees and shoulders, otherwise you may be denied entry. Please note that the security precautions have been tightened and you will have to be prepared for delays in the security checks at the Vatican. These controls cannot be circumvented even with a Rome City Pass and "preferential entry".
