Questions & Answers

How does the Rome Tourist Card work?

The Rome Tourist Card is a simple product. When you book, you receive three tickets for three attractions. When you buy, you can choose your preferred date and time slot. You can then print out your tickets or save them on your phone. You will also receive a Rome audio guide.

One advantage of the Rome Tourist Card is its flexibility. If there are no more tickets available for the most important sights, you can choose another attraction instead. You can choose from several top attractions in the Italian capital as well as an airport transfer including a local transport ticket.

What attractions are included?

With the Rome Tourist Card you can visit three attractions free of charge:

  • Colosseum including Roman Forum
  • Vatican Museums including the Sistine Chapel or St Peter's Basilica
  • Castel Sant'Angelo or Pantheon or airport transfer incl. local transport ticket

Admission to St Peter's Basilica is generally free of charge. With the Rome Tourist Card, you can take part in a guided tour or an audio tour and visit the dome of St Peter's Basilica.

Can I use public transport?

Yes, with the Rome Tourist Card you can also use public transport if you select the appropriate option when purchasing. The ticket is valid for 72 hours and must be collected at the airport.

Can I use the hop-on hop-off buses?

No, you cannot use hop-on hop-off buses with the Rome Tourist Card. If you would like to take a city tour, you should buy a separate ticket. You can find more information here: Hop-on/Hop-off Rome.

Do I save money with the Rome Tourist Card?

Your Rome trip will be cheapest if you book all tickets on the official websites of the attractions. However, you have to book the tickets on different websites and the allotments sometimes sell out quickly. If you would buy your tickets anyway at or Get Your Guide, you will save some money with the Rome Tourist Card. The card is cheaper than individual tickets.

When should I buy the Tourist Card?

Some of the tickets included in the Rome Tourist Card are only available four weeks before your visit. If you want to book your Tourist Card earlier, you may not have the full choice of attractions.

You should still book the card as early as possible. For trips in spring, summer and autumn, we recommend buying the Tourist Card two to four weeks before your arrival in Rome.

Unfortunately, the most important sights sell out quickly. In particular, the availability of tickets for the Colosseum and the Vatican Museums is often limited.

Is there a Tourist Card for children?

Yes, the Rome Tourist Card is also available for children and young people. The tickets are slightly cheaper for children. The exact purchase price depends on the age of the traveller. However, the Rome Tourist Card is not worthwhile for children, as they enjoy free admission to many attractions anyway.

Can I buy the card for several travellers?

Yes, you can buy up to 10 Rome Tourist Cards in one booking process. You can then forward the tickets to the other travellers.

How do I get the discount voucher?

After purchase, you will receive your personal discount voucher by email. Use this voucher to save 10% on your next Rome ticket booking.

Can I cancel the purchase free of charge?

No, cancellation or rebooking is not possible. Tickets for the attractions are reserved for you when you make your booking. These tickets cannot be rebooked.

How do I reach customer service?

Are there alternatives to the Rome Tourist Card?

For other Italian cities, for example, the official Verona Card.
