Rome – From today, 1 March 2022, the Forum Pass Super returns, the single ticket that allows – every day, from Monday to Sunday – the integrated visit of the archaeological areas of the Imperial Forums, the Roman Forum and the Palatine, including current exhibitions.
Born in 2019 from the collaboration between the Ministry of Culture and Roma Capitale, through an important memorandum of understanding signed between the Sovrintendenza Capitolina ai Beni Culturali (which manages the Imperial Forums area) and the Parco Archeologico del Colosseo (which also includes the Roman Forum and the Palatine), the Forum Pass Super was subsequently suspended due to the health emergency.
As of today, therefore, the single ticket will be reactivated: with a single 16 euro ticket (12 euro for MIC Card holders) valid for the entire day, you can once again access the route that, in about two hours, allows you to visit the archaeological heart of Rome.
The route through the Imperial Forums, following the walkway on the site, is barrier-free. It crosses part of the Forum of Trajan, passes underneath Via dei Fori Imperiali through the cellars of the ancient houses of the Alessandrino Quarter and, after crossing the entire length of the Forum of Caesar, near the Forum of Nerva it reaches the Curia Iulia in the Archaeological Park of the Colosseum, to enter the Roman Forum. Access to the area is also permitted from the gates of the Via Sacra/Arco di Tito, Via di S. Gregorio and, shortly, Via del Tulliano, in front of the Carcere Mamertino: in this case the route will end at the ticket office of the Colonna Traiana in Piazza della Madonna di Loreto.
Also included in the ticket is a visit to the SUPER sites in the Roman Forum and on the Palatine, unique places in the world whose special visit allows you to get to the heart of Roman art and civilisation, also through immersive technologies and virtual narrations. Visitors will be taken on a journey of discovery from the Augustan age, with the House of Augustus (Tuesday to Sunday), to the late ancient and early medieval age, with the Temple of Romulus, Santa Maria Antiqua and the Oratory of the Forty Martyrs. On Saturday, Sunday and Monday it will also be possible to access the Curia Iulia, the ancient seat of the Roman Senate.
Access to the SUPER sites is restricted, as they contain valuable paintings that could be affected by overcrowding. The exhibition “Giacomo Boni. L’alba della modernità”, which also includes the permanent section housed in the Santa Maria Nova building.
“The possibility of being able to buy, thanks to collaboration with the Ministry of Culture, a single ticket with which to visit the archaeological heart of classical Rome – said the Councillor for Culture of Roma Capitale, Miguel Gotor – is wonderful news, a tangible sign of the fact that the path to a new usability of our immense historical and artistic heritage has begun again. It is a first step in the great work that we plan to carry out in this area of the city and beyond.”
“Today the Palatine Hill, the Roman Forum and the Imperial Forums are once again accessible on a single tour, recreating a single 3,000-year-old story. The collaboration between the Ministry of Culture and Roma Capitale has been reconfirmed with a single shared objective: to return to the Romans the beating heart of the city, as a place to live and not only as a museum,” said the director of the Colosseum Archaeological Park, Alfonsina Russo.
