Omnia Card is a great pass! It combines access to top attractions located in Rome and in the Vatican City. The pass combines priority entry to the top sights in the Vatican City, with the Roma pass and the Hop-on Hop-off Bus pass.

There are two Omnia card options to choose from:
  • The Omnia pass valid for 24 hours, and
  • The Omnia pass valid for 72 hours

The pass valid for 72 hours includes free access to more attractions in Rome compared to the 24 hours, but it also costs a bit more.
Which pass to buy mainly depends on how many attractions you would like to visit, the length of your stay in Rome and your budget.

How does the Omnia Card Work?

After your booking you will receive an email. In the email you need to follow the instructions to reserve your visit for the attractions which require reservations in advance. Attractions which require advanced reservation include Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel, the St. Peter's Basilica and Colosseum to name a few.
It is highly recommended to book your visit in advance, especially during summer months, the so-called high season in Rome, when tickets to the most popular sights sell out fast.
The pass is valid for either 24 hours or 3 days from the date of activation. It will be activated the first time you visit a museum or attraction.
