We'll be stopping in Rome this May 23-26th. I was wondering if it's worth it to get the Roma pass? I saw on the site that the price increased to 34 euros. Our itinerary includes more walking around Rome experiencing the city as opposed to spending our days in museums. But we are spending a day at the Coliseum and Forum as well as one day at the Vatican (probably that Sunday; we're willing to face the crowds to go on the free day.) The rest of the time we're hoping to just take photo walks, explore the piazzas, and find some good restaurants.
We're staying near the forum, so most sights are in walking distance.
Do you think the Roma pass is needed for this trip, is it worth the 34 euro?
In addition, if anyone knows of the best little areas to shop for the typical, touristy, Italia jackets and other memorabilia, a couple of family members have specifically requested that we bring these back.
Thanks so much everyone, I really appreciate it!
