Public holiday in Italy on 1 November.
All Saints’ Day, or Ognissanti, on Wednesday 1 November is a public holiday in Italy, resulting in the closure of offices and schools, and public transport runs according to its Sunday schedule.
The celebration of All Saints’ is followed by All Souls' Day on 2 November, a Catholic tradition of mourning the dearly departed. In Italy this is a particularly important day, when people gather to visit family graves.
The city’s three main cemeteries, Verano, Flaminio and Prima Porta, are open each day from 07.30-18.00.
The Non-Catholic cemetery in the Ostiense-Testaccio district is open all day on 1 November, from 09.00-17.00, with last entrance at 16.30.
There are also increased bus services in the vicinity of the city’s cemeteries until 2 November.
