The Colosseum is one of more than 40 places where you can use the Roma PassHere’s an update to yesterday’s post about Saving Money with Combined Tickets. In addition to some other combined ticket options on offer in the Eternal City, there’s also the Roma Pass. The €20*, 3-day pass entitles the holder to “free” entry to two museums, reduced rates to other museums, access to all public transport, discounts on entertainment and guided tours, and a kit that includes maps of the city and transportation routes as well as news about events.

Visitors can choose from about 40 participating museums (PDF), including the Colosseum, the Capitoline Museums, the Galleria Borghese, and the Ara Pacis. It includes the archeological sites of Appia Antica and Ostia Antica. And it also includes lesser-known contemporary sites, such as MACRO.

The Roma Pass is a great deal for just about everyone, but especially students, weekend visitors, and second- or third-time visitors who want to check out museums that aren’t usually on the tourist itinerary. Another bonus – it can be purchased just about anywhere. See the Roma Pass website for further details. And, if you’re looking for a way to save money on hotels, check out Rome Hotels for more information.

UPDATE: The pass now costs €25.
