Are they worth it??? Confused I've checked out the Paris pass https://www.paris-pass.com/buynow/Default.aspx and the Roma pass http://www.romapass.it/(S(njycamfu0ytfj4ymktxlvk45))/english/lecard.html they say you can skip the lines & get a better deal but wouldn't all the tourists do that? Is it worth purchasing if I only have one free day in each city?

    You really need to find out how much time and $$ what you want to see will cost, then determine if the cost of the pass for 1 day is effective. If its only a few $ more then it may be worth it to avoid the lines. I bought a Paris museum and metro pass (4 days museum and 5 day metro) mainly just because I will be there so long and will get my moneys worth. On the same account I bought the London passes (2 days museum and 3 days transportation) and cost it out that the pass might be a few $ more than regular admission for what I want to see. But saving time in line is worth the extra cost.

    Unless you want to spend very little time at each attraction, the only benefit that I would see a one day pass giving you is the front of line access. But, again, it all depends on what you want to see.

    I did not buy the Rome pass because I hear on my trip (The Euro Whirl) there is a free transportation pass that day, and I would not get nearly my moneys worth, even to avoid a line.

    Those passes are only good if you are going to be in the city for 3-5 days depending on the pass. The Roma Pass is great though since you can also use it as a bus ticket for 3 days and it gets you intocertain sites for the 20 euro cost. And discounts on other locations.
