‘POMPEII 365’ is coming: the pass which allows you to visit Pompeii whenever you wish
From the 1st January 2020, lovers of Pompeii will be able to the visit the archaeological sites whenever they wish at a reduced price, thanks to the Pompeii 365 annual pass.
The pass will cost €60 for Pompeii and €80 for Pompeii, Oplontis and Boscoreale (admission to Stabiae is free of charge). An additional reduction will be granted to young people between 18 and under 25 years of age, who will be able to enjoy unlimited access for the cost of only €8.
Furthermore, during the Christmas holidays - from the 15th to the 31st December - by using the www.ticketone.it platform it will be possible to purchase and/or gift the pass at a further reduced price: €50 for Pompeii and €70 for all sites (without any commission fee during the launch period). When doing so, a booking document will be issued which will then permit collection of the physical pass at the ticket office from the 1st January.
Beginning in 2020, the pass will be available to purchase both online on the www.ticketone.it website and at the dedicated counter of the Porta Marina ticket office.
The non-transferable and personalised pass is valid for the duration of a year from the date of issue, and will give the right - upon producing a valid identity document - to unlimited access to the archaeological sites as well as to any temporary exhibitions in progress. It may be used exclusively on ordinary opening days and hours of the sites. Initiatives which are not managed by the Park and not included in the ordinary ticketing or scheduling are not included in the pass.
Additionally, from the 1st January 2020, the price of the ordinary admission ticket to the site of Pompeii will be €16.
“The decision to introduce a pass for the archaeological sites, which has been under consideration for some time - declares Director General Massimo Osanna - seeks to respond to the clear request of the many archaeology enthusiasts and citizens who have expressed their interest via a recent petition which was sent to us. This is an initiative which we have decided to honour, taking up the proposed name of Pompeii365.
While on the one hand we have increased the cost of the admission ticket to the excavations by €1, in consideration of the expenditure needs of such a vast and visited archaeological area but remaining in line with the standards of both international and the most prominent Italian museums, we have also resolutely sought to meet the demands of the region in order to guarantee the widest participation and inclusion of all citizens. This is an involvement which we consider to be fundamental to raising ever greater awareness of the inestimable cultural treasure which has been handed down to us, as well as the importance of safeguarding it.
The pass, together with the free Sundays initiative which was introduced by Mibact, is aimed at expanding the possibilities of visiting the site and bringing every kind of visitor closer to this unique heritage which is at our fingertips, but must always be rediscovered and enjoyed to the best of its potential”.
For those in possession of the Pompei365 pass, its period of validity will be extended by the number of days corresponding to the duration of the site’s closure as a result of the health emergency. A promotion offering a 50% reduction on the price of the pass is also in effect until the 28th February. Exclusively for those passes whose validity has been extended, a purchase under this promotion before the 28th February will be valid for one year from the date of first use. The free ticket for individual entries must, in each instance, be requested on the website www.ticketone.it.
