sightseeing, not queueing
Checking ticket availability...

Since the start of 2018 there have been administrative issues in Rome that have meant this product is currently unavailable - we'll update here as soon as that changes.

Rome Archaeological Card - admission to multiple sites in Rome and a downloadable English audioguide to the Colosseum

The pass is valid for seven days and allows you to bypass any queues.

Please note that in the event that any of the attractions are unexpectedly closed for repair by the authorities in Rome, we cannot be held responsible.

Please note that the Rome Archeological Card includes your entry fee for the Colosseum and tickitaly.com's downloadable English audioguide (with accompanying map) of the Colosseum. The audioguide comes in either mp3 or m4a formats and can be downloaded when you print your entrance vouchers.

The Rome Archaeological Card gives you entrance (without queueing) to ten notable archaeological attractions in Rome including the Colosseum. The card offers a combined saving over the individual entrance fees, and is good for one visit per venue:

The Palazzo Altemps
The Palazzo Massimo
The Terme (baths) di Caracalla
The Tomb of Cecilia Metella
The Villa dei Quintili
The Palatine Hill

How you'll get your tickets:
To reserve your Rome card, just fill out the booking form, supply us with credit card details, and we'll do the rest. There will be no charge whatsoever until we confirm your reservation. We'll then point you to our secure page, where you can print out your entry voucher. Print it out, take it with you to Italy and present it at the ticket desk ... they will swap it for your entry ticket. As simple as that!.

Your voucher will contain detailed instructions on how and where to pick up your tickets - please read them carefully. Due to the recent decision to impose a ceiling on the number of visitors allowed to enter the Colosseum at a given time, it is possible, even with a 'no queues' ticket, that you will face delays. We would advise in particular that you avoid visiting first thing in the morning.

You may exchange your voucher at any time of day but remember that the ticket office will close one hour before the Colosseum itself closes. Your ticket, once collected, is only valid for the Colosseum at the time confirmed by the staff on the spot.

Please be prepared to show some ID - It is sometimes difficult for Italian officials to understand that not all countries require their citizens to carry ID cards, if indeed they are issued in said countries at all. You will often find that nothing other than a Passport or Driving Licence (with photograph) will suffice.

This card was great, however it could have been better with a list of all the actual places it could be used. We just found things trough trial and erreor.

We managed to visit almost all of the sites on the card which meant that it represented exceptionally good value for money. The sites themselves were great and the only place we had to queue was for security at the Colosseum. Would definitely recommend.

The Colosseum and Forum were incredible. We didn't have time for more places (inside) but we did walk around the perimeter and took a lot of photos of the Colosseum from many angles. If you have more days, THIS is the card to buy versus the Bus Tours (my recommendation).
