Free passes for major Jubilee events and Holy Door at St Peter’s.
Pilgrims coming to Rome for the Holy Jubilee Year of Mercy can obtain tickets, free of charge, for major Vatican ceremonies and for access to the Holy Door at St Peter's, by registering via the special Jubilee website.
Tickets for individuals and groups are available through the “Pilgrim Registration” section of the website, as part of a system designed to avoid queueing for events for the Jubilee which runs from 8 December until 20 November 2016. Once registered the user will receive an email with a link directing them to a page to book tickets and passes.
Pilgrims wishing to access the Holy Door at St Peter's can choose the desired day and preference for either morning (07.00-13.00) or afternoon (13.30-17.00). Visitors will be channelled through a reserved pedestrian route from Castel S. Angelo, passing along Via della Conciliazione up to Piazza S. Pietro.
Access to the major Jubilee events is divided into eight categories: pilgrimage leaders (or individual); Jubilee for the Spirituality of Divine Mercy; deacons; priests; sick and disabled; Jubilee workers and volunteers; catechists; and Marian Jubilee.
Visiting the Holy Doors at Rome's other papal basilicas – S. Giovanni in Laterano, S. Maria Maggiore, and S. Paolo Fuori le Mura – is not subject to registration.
