Rome museums free on 3 November

Rome's state and city-run museums open for free on Sunday 3 November.

State museums and archaeological sites in Rome and across Italy will be open for free on Sunday 3 November thanks to the ever-popular Domenica al Museo.

The free entry scheme which takes place every first Sunday of the month from October to March, has attracted some 15 million visitors since it was introduced in the summer of 2014.

The upcoming edition of Domenica al Museo takes place in tandem with the monthly free entry for Rome's city-run museums, for residents of the capital.

In July 2018 Rome introduced the €5 MIC card granting the capital's residents unlimited access to municipal museums for one year.

The museum pass has proved extremely successful, with the sale of almost 90,000 cards since the scheme was introduced last summer.
