Do you accept the RomaPass?

Yes, if you have a RomaPass, we will happily deduct your ticket fee from the price of your Colosseum or Borghese Gallery tour. Please note, however, that you must inform us about the card immediately upon booking your tour so that we know not to pre-book a ticket for you.

How far in advance should I book my tour?

The earlier the better! Many of our limited-availability tours; such as the Colosseum Underground Tour; sell out months in advance, so planning ahead is essential to ensure that you get a space on your preferred tour and date. Our regular tours of Rome and the Vatican can usually be booked two to three weeks in advance even during high season, although availability can never be guaranteed.

Is it possible to place last-minute tour bookings on the same day?

We are happy to accommodate same-day bookings as long as we still have spots open. If the tour is off-sale on our website, please contact our customer service team via e-mail or phone to verify availability and make your reservation.
