Important things to know about Roma Pass

  1. Borghese Gallery reservations – The Roma Pass give free entry to the Borghese museums, but do not provide you with a reservation which is absolutely necessary during high season. To make a reservation at the Gallery Borghese, you can go online or call them.
  2. Lines at the Coliseum and Vatican – You have to expect some waiting, even with the pass. Holding a Roma Pass doesn’t mean there is absolutely no waiting at all.
  3. Many museums are closed Mondays, and also December 25, January 1 and May 1. So plan accordingly.
