The following is included in the Roma Pass 48 hours:

  • 48 hours (or 72 hours) use of the public transportation (ATAC) in Rome (bus, tram, metro and some train lines)
  • Access to one museum or archeologic site (check out the museums here). This is also the biggest advantagae of the Roma Pass, during high season the popular highlights like the Colosseum and the Borghese Gallery are probably already sold out.
