At the end of the tour, get ready for some science and astronomy, as you will walk in the Basilica of Santa Maria degli Angeli, housing a unique planetary sundial, built by 17th-century astronomers for the Pope to calculate the perfect sequence of day and night throughout the seasons.

The pass allowed us entrance to the attractions we wanted and easy travel around the city on the metro. Easy to use. The only confusing thing was the need to actually have the physical card (rather than just the online purchase) in order to book attractions. However we collected the card from the tourist information office immediately we arrived in Rome. The card was validated from its first use for a full 72 hours. A great buy.

Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about the subject matter of the museum. We enjoyed our private tour very much.

Kinda tricky to book tbh but it was really useful and a pretty good deal if you’re staying for a short time in Rome

חוסך זמן, זמין כבר בשדה התעופה אחרי המזוודות. אבל לא ניתן לעלות על אוטובוס התיירות. הם לא מעלים.

It was so helpful coming for the day being able to get to see all the attractions was fun
