Museums run by the Italian government will again offer free admission on the first Sunday of each month
Who travel to ItalyP now you can check out more than 300 museums for free on the first Sunday of every month. THE Ministry of Cultural Heritage of Italy announced the return of the initiative that had already been instituted in July 2014 by Minister Dario Franceschini, but it ended when his successor, Alberto Bonisoli, took over.
In August of this year Franceschini returned to the post of minister and restored free admission to all government-run museums on the first Sunday of each month. Among the attractions that can be visited for free is the Colosseum Archaeological Park, in Rome, the Gallerie degli Uffizi and the Galleria dell'Accademia, in Florence, the Royal Museum of Turin and the archaeological site of Pompeii.
During Bonisoli's administration, free Sundays were replaced by 20 days with free admission over the years, since, according to him, the measure of free museums on Sundays caused an overcrowding in attractions.
