Children visiting museums in Rome

Hi, we are visiting Rome with our 3 children aged 11, 9 & 6. Thinking of getting Roma Pass for all of us but came to know that public transport and entrance to attactions in Rome are free anyway for children below 10? Is this true? Or is it only valid if you are from EU?

Would it be better then for me to get only 3 Roma pass for 2 adults and 1 child aged 11, instead of 5 (for the whole family)

Thanks

First of all, remember you need to visit 2 or more museums to make the pass worthy and all churches are not included because are free and Vatican museum it's not included because it's not in Italy.

Anyone under 18 gets in free to state owned sites and museums. Not all museums and galleries are free. You can check the official websites or just check when you get there. Either way, the romapass won't be a good idea for the kids because you'd probably use it for the colosseum (which is free for the kids) and the Borghese gallery (another free one for them). Just get it for the adults.

Nothing at the Vatican is covered by the pass.

I read on the Borghese website that only children from the EU are free. Is this accurate? Anyone have experience with American children being admitted free? I'll buy Roma passes from my husband and I only if this is the case.

Their site has not been updated. Your kids should get free admission. You will still need to make a reservations for them but they should get in for free.

If using the romapass for entry you'll need to call to make the reservations.

Regarding public transit in Rome, children 10 years old and younger (the actual wording is "until the completion of the tenth year") ride free. There is nothing that specifies the nationality of the children.

You can see the regulations here, the part about children is Title IV, Article 22 (for those who like to research and verify) on page 10: http://www.atac.roma.it/files/doc.asp?r=1879
