European Heritage Days

A nationwide programme of events takes place in Italy during the last weekend of September to mark European Heritage Days. In Rome there is free entry to civic museums, including the popular annual Museum Night when participating cultural institutions open from 20.00 until midnight on 28 September. Organised in conjunction with the capital and the culture ministry, a number of events and guided tours take place across Rome. Held annually across Europe since 1991, the European Days of Patrimony are designed to emphasise the common cultural heritage shared between Europeans.
