If you are planning on visiting the eternal city anytime soon, well the new Rome Sightseeing Pass could well be the best ticket for you. Launched this week in conjunction with City Sightseeing Roma, this 48-hour attraction, bus and public transport pass represents great value for travellers.

The Roma Sightseeing Pass is all you will need to complete the perfect short-break, weekend break or holiday in the wonderful Capital City of Rome. Included are the City’s two main tourist attractions the Colosseum and the Vatican Museum. There is also a 48-hour City Sightseeing hop-on hop-off open top bus tour plus the bonus of a 48-hour ATAC public transport card which gives you unlimited access to Rome’s excellent public transport network.

Using the Rome Sightseeing Pass is very simple too. Once you have purchased your passes online a simple email voucher is sent immediately to your in-box and when you arrive in Rome this can be presented at any one of four main tourist centres or even to the driver of the City Sightseeing Rome bus tour!

Once you have ‘activated’ your Rome Sightseeing Pass you will probably want to jump aboard the City Sightseeing Rome open top bus tour. Included in the pass is unlimited use of the bright red tour buses over 48 hours. There are 8 key stops along the bus tour route which is ideal for hopping off and back on again when it suits. The complete tour lasts just under two hours and there are buses every 15 minutes during the day.

One of your first stops could well be a visit to the famous Colosseum. Your Roma Sightseeing Pass includes exclusive skip-the-line access to both the Roman Colosseum and Forum and Palatine Hill archaeological sites. This archaeological wonder has seen its fair share of crowds – from cheering crowds watching gladiator battles of centuries ago to throngs of international tourists who visit the site every year.

Your next stop-off is the Vatican Museum and Sistine Chapel. Enjoy skip-the-line access to both attractions as part of your Rome Sightseeing Pass. The Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel is a must if want to get the full flavour of Rome's religious and artistic heritage. The skip-the-line ticket grants entry to all of the Vatican Museums' highlight areas, including: the Hall of Maps, the Pinecone Courtyard, the Gallery of Tapestries, the Gallery of Candelabra and the breath-taking Raphael Rooms!

The other excellent added value element to the Roma Sightseeing Pass is unlimited travel on Rome’s entire public transport network for 48 hours. The ATAC Card will give you access to the City’s buses, trams and trolley buses as well as the underground metro system and the regional train network.

Speaking about the launch of the new Rome Sightseeing Pass, CityXplora managing director Iain Coupar said: “A visit to Rome has to be on every travellers bucket list and now we have the ultimate Rome Sightseeing Pass on offer meaning you can see the City’s main attractions within a short period of time. The pass also represents good value for money as well as being so easy to use.”
