On July 2014, the Italian Minister of Culture announced a range of new ideas to encourage people to take more of an interest in the arts. The government initiative called: “Domenica al museo” which states that every first Sunday of the month. You will not pay the ticket to visit monuments, museums, galleries, archaeological excavations, parks and monumental gardens of the state.
The list of participating museums etc can be found on the Italian Ministry of Culture. trust us, there are some gems on the list are included the Uffizi Gallery in Florence, the Coliseum in Rome and the Academia Gallery in Venice.
Ok now that you know that on January 7th 2018 the museums of Rome are free, let’s see how to do and which museums will be open. In the section below, you can get Lazio’s temples, museums, old town, historical monuments, theaters, palaces and many more.
Since the initiative of a Sunday at the Museum has been a great success, it will be very probable that on January 7th 2018 you will have to queue up before entering the visit.
So we suggest you choose a maximum of 2-3 museums and plan your itinerary first. Below I have classified the various museums in importance: I suggest you to choose between one important and 1-2 minors.
Scroll through the list and plan your itinerary.
