A free dose of culture? Yes, please.

Today marks the beginning of the 13th Annual Culture Week in Italy.  For nine days (April 9-17), monuments, museums, archaeological sites and archives owned and operated by the State will be open free to the public.  Yes, FREE!  Keep in mind, the Vatican is a separate country, so the Vatican Museum will not be free to the public during Culture Week.  There will be plenty of other options though with the Colosseum, the Forum, Palantine Hill, Museo di Roma, Musei Capitolini and many, many more.  The city sponsored a similar event last month in celebration of the 150th Anniversary of the Unification of Italy.  We visited Castel Sant’Angelo, and thoroughly enjoyed it.  We will definitely be taking advantage of Culture Week throughout this next week.
