Has anyone used the Rome Archaeologia Card?

Jump to last reply

I discovered the Archaeologia Card on one of the web sites for ancient Roman attractions but the info on it is limited to two web sites that reference each other. Has anyone used it & did you purchase it online? If you have to pick it up at one of the attractions, which one is best/ shortest lines?

It's offered by the Special Superintendency for the Archaeological Heritage of Rome & covers admission to sites and museums run by that agency for E23 per person, and includes some of the major sites. The Card is valid for 7 days & allows access to the following archaeological monuments of Rome: the Colosseum, Roman Forum and Palatine, the Baths of Caracalla, Villa dei Quintiles, Mausoleum of Cecilia Metella and the four branches of the National Museum of Rome: Palazzo Massimo, Palazzo Altemps, Balbi Crypt, the Baths of Diocletian. By my count the individual tix would be E25 (plus online fees) so not much of a savings. THe deal is having the card that keeps you out of the ticket lines, and not having to handle individual self-printed tickets. Is it worth it?

It is sold through the COOP Culture web site, and the info link takes you back to the Special Superintendency site where you started. (Links below)
Thanks for the help!

    I'm familiar with it (it's been around for years and was available before the Roma Pass existed). Most people aren't visiting that many archaeological sites in their few days in Rome and the Roma Pass can be the better option (it includes many museums and transport). The Roma Pass includes museums such as Capitoline, Borghese Galleria, etc. and the Colosseum/Forum which are all higher priced entry fees so might be easier to get the value (first two sites entered are free on the 3 day Roma Pass and then you get discounts at the others). You might want to check the entry prices for each site which is available on the Roma Pass website to see if either the Archaeologica Card (used to be available for purchase on Pierreci and ticketclic which now rolls over to the Omni ticket that Coop uses) or one of the Roma Passes is beneficial.

    You will see the sites listed on the Archaeology Card are mostly combo tickets anyway (ticket called Museo Nazionale Romano allowing entrance to all sites listed) for the Palazzo Massimo, Palazzo Altemps, Balbi Crypt, the Baths of Diocletian is 10€ (supposed to be good for 3 days). The Baths of Caracalla, Villa dei Quintiles, Mausoleum of Cecilia Metella is also a combo ticket (6€ and called Appia Antica - supposed to be good for 7 days). While the combo ticket for the Colosseum/Forum is 12€.

    Most of the sites aren't very expensive to enter, but if you plan to visit most of them (don't believe Domus Aurea is currently allowing visitors) it might be worthwhile. The Colosseum/Forum is probably the most expensive (12€), but if you buy an entry ticket (you can buy through Coopculture), it's good for two days (one entry to Colosseum area and one entry to Palantine/Forum)and you bypass the ticket line.

    You used to be able to purchase the Archaeology Card on Pierreci website which rolled over to ticketclic for the purchase. I think that is now Omni ticket (Coopculture rolls over to it for the purchase), but I don't see the card listed currently.

    The Colosseum has a separate line for picking up tickets bought online so you don't have to wait in the long ticket purchase lines.
