Easter in Rome

During the Easter holidays, on Sunday 31 March and Monday 1 April, most of the national cultural venues in Rome will stay open.

However some, such as the National Gallery of Modern Art (GNAM), may be closed on Tuesday 2 April instead of their usual Monday day off.

For the full list of museums, archaeological sites and galleries open this Sunday and Monday, see the Beni Culturali website.

Likewise the city museums will be open on Easter Monday (La Pasquetta), with the normal ticket price and opening hours. For more details see the Musei in Comune Roma website.

The capital gets into the Easter spirit with Pasqua in 3D at the Galleria Agostiniana in Piazza del Popolo until 1 April. The event includes “Easter cribs", a display of Easter traditions from around the world, and master chocolatiers who reveal the secrets of their trade. For more details see the city's website.
