Basic Rome questions...

Jump to last reply

Four of us will be in Rome late May. We will buy the Roma pass because I believe it will be convenient even though we may not save money.

Questions:

I plan to buy the passes upon arrival - can this be done at the airport with a credit card?

I can't determine if I should by the Roma-PIU pass? It looks like it just adds zone b to the public transport and the only place this may help is with the Catacombs of Priscilla. We will stay at Campo de Fiori area, visit the Colosseum, Vatican, Borghese Gallery, the Pantheon, Spanish steps, Trevi Fountain (just the usual sight for first timers). I know Rome is compact and we can and will walk a lot. I don't think we need Zone b. Do you agree?

Do will still reserve tours at the Colosseum, Forum and Palatine Hill if we use the Roma pass for entry? I know we must for the Borghese Gallery.

I am thinking about scheduling the Colosseum the first day of arrival - it will be outside in the sun which will help our jet lag. Is this a bad idea? We are early 50's and two daughters, 21 and 19.

We will need about 700 Euros cash upon arrival at the airport to pay the driver and to pay the balance on our apartment. Plus spending money. Are we limited to how much cash we can withdraw from an ATM at the airport?

Thanks for answering any of these questions!
