Visitors will have free access to the Parco del Colosseo - the archeological park incorporating the Colosseum, Palatine Hill and Roman Forum - on select days in 2019.
The openings are part of a package of up to 20 days of free admission to state museums and archaeological sites, which included the week-long Settimana dei Musei in March, introduced by Italy's culture minister Alberto Bonisoli.
