What's included with the OMNIA Vatican & Rome Pass?

There are three parts to the OMNIA Vatican & Rome Pass:

    Use this card for free entry to several top Vatican City and Rome attractions, as well as 72-hour access to Rome's Hop-on Hop-off Bus.

How do I use my pass?

Depending on the attraction, you'll need to show either your OMNIA Card or your Roma Pass to enter. You can find out which attraction is on which pass on our Attractions page

Some attractions come with the added bonus of letting you reserve a time slot in advance. Information on how to do this will be included in your confirmation email.


How long do I have to use my pass?

Your pass will activate when you visit your first attraction or use your travelcard. It will then be valid for 72 hours.

After you purchase your pass online, you'll have 12 months to activate it.


Where can I collect my pass?

Once you've purchased your pass online, you can collect it from one of our collection centers in Central Rome. There are three convenient locations to choose from, right by Rome's most popular attractions. Pick up your passes and start sightseeing straight away!
