For a family of 5 round trip it was.
This is legit and Ive been using it for years, if you dont use Ebates and would like to sign up you can here.
Taxi You can take a taxi as well.
I was so hungry we didnt even think about it before going.Also several of the sites we visited were free as well.To get your worth from the Roma Pass you need to use it at least 3 sites and use public transport.Grand total for 3 nights 351.36 which is not bad for the Rome area for a family of 5!16/20 per adult, 8/10 per child plus 4/5 pre booking fee online per person (BUT worth IT TO avoid wait) 76/92 Even with the online booking fee it was still cheaper than doing a tour to skip the line and we were on our own.Here are the price breakdowns that I looked at before deciding: Roma Pass 48 hours includes 1 free entry 28/34 per person.We also hit the local grocery store and bought snacks and drinks, this saved a lot of money!We ended up not using a Hop On Hop Off (hoho) bus because after all my researching the general consensus was that you dont need it because you see everything while your walking around, I have to say I agree and Im glad I did.
The bus drops you off at the Termini.
At the grocery store we got bottles of coke for 1,05 and cans for.65.
This beats the 23 per day you could end up paying.
Train You can take the train, but you have to take a bus to get to the train station.I went through the Ebates link, added in gift of prophecy verse my promo code, and then added the hotel to check out.Ill be posting more info about our daily itineraries soon, so check back if your headed to Rome!We couldve saved 53 if we had used the carry-ons, we tried the carry ons only for Barcelona and it worked great, and easy way to save money!Then I also use an Orbitz coupon code, normally 15-20 off as well.Ive give you some examples: Drinks in Rome are expensive we seen cokes for 3-5 each!The best restaurants we ate at had no service charge and were reasonable with our family of 5 eating for 36 and 33, thats even cheaper than what it costs for us to eat out in Germany as 5!It was plenty of time and we couldve easily done it all in 2 days if needed.We carried these with us during the day, there are also tons of public water fountains to refill your bottles if needed for free.Metro tickets are 1,50 and include one trip with underground transfers and access to the buses trams for 100 mins.
