Free Museums, Guided Tours & Special Openings in Rome on September 28-29!

terme-di-caracallaThis week-end will be a feast of complimentary entrances to landmarks and special events: Not only it falls on the European Heritage Days, a Europe-wide event that aims at making European citizens aware of the wealth and cultural diversity which thrives in the Old Continent, but there is also an extraordinary night opening and two Vatican Museums free days.

On September 28 and 29 most monuments and museums will be free in Rome. There will be also many guided tours (in Italian), concerts and other shows. Some places will be open for this special occasion only.

As usual, we don’t leave you unattended with a list of 50 different activities. We like to select some for you. And these are the happenings that we consider particularly interesting.

If you also wonder what the younger generations of Italian artists are doing there is an exhibition that you shouldn’t miss: Segno e Insegno, at the Italian Graphics Institute from the 28th to October 6, a show by the top students of the country’s Arts Academies.

There are also landmarks and buildings usually closed to the public that will be extraordinarily open for the European Heritage Days such as the Renaissance palace of Palazzo Mattei Giove, which hosts the state audiovisual archive and the National History Library.

Even bigger and more overwhelming than that is the so called Wisdom Island Itinerary. For the occasion, the Senate, Lower House and Casanatense libraries will be contemporarily open to the public. These buildings used to belong to the Dominican Monastery around the church of Santa Maria in Minerva.

Finally, an event connected to the Una Notte al Museo initiative. The Renaissance Villa that hosts the Etruscan Museum will feature a Southern Italian folk concert on the 28th. An interesting mix of high and pop culture, ancient, of the Renaissance and contemporary.

Last but not least, this week the Vatican Museums will be free on Friday 27 and on Sunday 29.

    my own weblog and was curious what all is
    needed to get set up? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would
    cost a pretty penny? I’m not very web savvy so I’m not 100% certain. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Many thanks
