In this post we want to give some suggestions on the most convenient tickets, cards or tours to visit the most famous monuments of Rome, depending on the type of visitor and the time available, by answering a few questions.

Is it your first time visiting Rome?

For those coming to Rome for the first time and, obviously, wanting to visit the most important monuments such as the Colosseum, the Roman Forum, the Sistine Chapel or the Vatican, the most convenient (and often cheaper) thing is to buy cards or packages which include access to these monuments, such as:

  • Rome Super Pass, which in addition to admission to the Colosseum, Sistine Chapel, Vatican Museums and an audio guide for St. Peter’s Basilica, also allows unlimited use of public transport
  • Rome Tourist Card, which does not include the use of public transport but does include a guided tour of St. Peter’s Basilica.

Otherwise, a valid alternative is to book the ticket for the Colosseum which also includes the tour of Rome on the Hop On Hop Off Bus and the ticket for other monuments such as the Vatican Museums and the Sistine Chapel, the Borghese Gallery, Castel Sant’Angelo.

Do you want to visit the Colosseum in the most complete way?

In this case, the best thing is the complete guided tour of the Colosseum, with the Arena and the Underground, which also includes access to the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill.

Alternatively, you can opt for:

Otherwise, the certainly more suggestive option is to visit the Colosseum and the Underground by night.

Have you already seen the Colosseum and the Sistine Chapel?

For those who have already been to Rome and have already seen the most important monuments such as the Colosseum and the Vatican Museums, we suggest, first of all, the complete tour of the archaeological area of the Imperial Forums, Roman Forum and Palatine Hill with the Forum Pass, which, in addition to all S.U.P.E.R. inside the archaeological area, it also allows you to visit the area of the Forum of Trajan and the Forum of Caesar.

Then we suggest the following guided tours to get to know these places in Rome better:
