How it works
The OMNIA Vatican and Rome Card actually includes two different sightseeing passes: the 3 day OMNIA Vatican Card and the 3 day Rome Pass. We recommend making the most of each card by activating them in the morning. You can activate the cards on separate days, which is a great option if you’re staying in Rome for more than 3 days.
For example, if you’re staying in Rome for over 3 days, you can activate the OMNIA Card (includes 72 hour sightseeing tour bus and the Vatican City landmarks) and when the card is no longer valid, you can then activate the Rome Pass (includes unlimited access to the city’s public transport and admission to some of Rome’s top attractions, like the Roman Forum, the Palatine Hill and the Colosseum.
We recommend activating each pass in the morning to make the most of them.
The card is valid for 12 months from the moment of purchase.
