Italy museums free for women on 8 March

Italian museums celebrate Giornata internazionale della Donna.

Women will have free entry to state museums and archaeological sites in Rome and across Italy on 8 March, as part of a nationwide initiative by the culture ministry to mark International Women's Day.

In addition to offering free entry, Italy's museums will host a series of special events throughout the day dedicated to women, listed on the culture ministry website.

Among the venues free for women on 8 March are the Colosseum, Baths of Caracalla, Pompeii and the Uffizi, with discounted tickets for female visitors at Rome's MAXXI.

The free entry for women in Italy's museums on 8 March is preceded by Domenica al Museo, the monthly initiative offering free admission to all visitors of Italy's state museums and archaeological sites, on Sunday 5 March.
