Overall rating

(5,199 reviews)

This card is very good, especially for a first time in Rome. I didn't pay much. The entrees. I only paid for the meals. We ate really well in the morning at the hotel. A week with the sun. A pure happiness. With addresses taken from the internet for lunch and dinner. Great stay, lots to see. Gorgeous

Very good. Had good roommates. For a 4 bed room with 3 strangers... I can only say good things. Staff very nice. Beds were very clean... But if you sleep in a bunk bed you shouldn't have any physical limitations... climbing up and down will be a bit difficult... I absolutely don't regret it.

A city and ruins where you can feel the history. traditional cuisine. Citizens are friendly to tourists. I had a pleasant stay in Rome with the impression that the public safety has improved.

The only problem is the collection points. When I arrived at the Roman Forum, there were no more 48-hour cards available. It should be digital, it would make everyone's life easier.

The tour was amazing very informative and relaxed and saw lots of hidden spots along the way spent lots of time at each spot for photos and your general viewing. Will recommend highly.
