The Roma Pass saves your time in many ways. For instance, you can’t always buy tickets for individual journeys on the bus, while the Rome Pass Card relieves you from this stress. Also, it gives a benefit from speedy access in specific locations.
There are two types of Rome city cards the Roma Pass and the Omnia Pass. They have only several differences: the Omnia Pass has a limit of attractions that can be visited for free, but offers a real city guide, while the Rome Pass provides more attractions for free, but with an app and city map included in it.

Of course, there are some circumstances under which you don’t need a Roma Pass. For instance, if you are traveling with children, you should know that children under 18 y.o. have free entry to all national and city museums, while children under 12 y.o. have free access to public transportation. Moreover, all national museums (not city museums) have free admission on the first Sunday of the month, so consider if your ticket doesn’t coincide with this day. Moreover, many museums on national holidays, especially Christmas, New Year’s Day, and May 1st may be closed, and most museums are closed on Mondays.
