The 48 hours pass gets you entry to one attraction for free, and the 72 hours pass gets you free entry into two Roman attractions. 

If you are in Rome for more than two days, opting for the 72-hour pass is best. 

If you plan to visit many attractions, the 72-hour pass is a better option because you get three days validity. 

Rome Pass with three-day validity makes sense even if you are not on a budget holiday, but experience matters for you – because they get you inside the attraction without waiting.

Is the Roma Pass worth it
