Both of these options provide VIP, no-wait-in-line admission to major sites in both Rome and Florence.   In the case of Florence's Firenze Card, reservations to get into the most popular museums are not necessary.  Here is a summary for the museum pass options for both Rome and Florence.

Rome's Roma Pass:  At a cost of 34 euros, the Roma Pass offers free, no-wait-in-line admission to 2 attractions while on your tour to Rome.  For instance, the Colossuem/Roman Forum (counts as one admission for both) is about 18 euros.  The Borghese Gallery costs 16 euros, but still requires a reservation.   The card also includes 3 days of metro/bus transportation and gives significant discounts on admission to other sites in Rome.  Here is the website: http://www.romapass.it/p.aspx?l=en&tid=2

Florence's Firenze Card:  Whenever on a small group tour to Florence, I buy the Firenze card.  A little pricier at 72 euro, it provides admission, no wait-in-line, no reservation needed to the most popular sites, including the Accademia (David) and the Uffizi Gallery.  It is also valid for a period of 72 hours and includes local transportation.  The website is:  http://www.firenzecard.it/

Again, the big advantage of the cards is not so much of their money-saving value, but the ability to skip the lines and enter without an appointment.   They can be purchased at tourist information booths around the city.

I highly recommend buying these cards on your next tour to Rome or you next tour to Florence.
