Italy's Culture Week 2011

Free Museums in Rome and Italy

Rome is a center of art, full of museums, ancient sites, for one week it will be so easy for tourists and Rome's visitors to access all that history for free. From 9-17th of April 2011, Italy will celebrate its 12th annual Settimana della Cultura, or Culture Week. During these 9 days - admission to national museums and monuments will be free or discounted. The Palaces and archaeological sites aren't normally open to the public, its like an exclusive bonus.

You can discover all the wonders of Rome - its magical fountains, the magical atmosphere and beautiful Roman squares. Roman Temples and Amphitheaters, churches, Renaissance and Baroque palaces, and the fascinating medieval alleyways of Rome are only a few of the aspects that the Eternal City blends in a harmony of styles and ages that has no equal.

The Italian Ministry of culture has opened all state operated museums, it was decided 12 years ago. In addition to the free admission, there will be special performances, exhibitions and tours given.

So we suggest you to travel to Rome for these days and get a nice accomodation and stay in the center, discovering and exploring the Eternal City's ancient streets.

Don't forget that the Vatican City is not Italy and their sites won’t be free to visit, so

leave the Vatican for the days when Cultural Week is not taking place.
