These cards worked exactly as advertised and were well worth the money. Easy to validate and to use. I can't imagine touring Rome without them.

Great tour through Vatican Museum and Sistine Chapel finishing in St Peter's. Our guide was wonderful - she was very knowledgeable and understanding of everyone's queries. Jumping the queues was definitely worth it!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2016

The ladies at the Vatican where you pick up this card helped me out so much. I had forgotten my paper and we worked it out to get the tour. Now, since I arrived very late they rebooked me for the Vatican on the following Monday. I am so thankful. This is worth the month and the time to get. I had mastered the Metro in no time Thank you to the city of Rome for clarity in the stations andjust awesome time at the Vatican.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2016

We didn't take full advantage of the card as it would have been really tiresome and because we enjoy the occasional coffee / panini / pizza break, but it was nevertheless perfect. We saw everything we wanted to see, we skipped all the lines, we hopped on hopped off every metro / bus / tram whenever we wanted without worrying about fees or where to purchase the ticket from. It was such a relaxing way to enjoy Rome from a foreigner's perspective that has to go back to work :D .
