Museums in Rome celebrate Notte dei Musei on 13 May 2023.
Rome's city-run museums will stay open until 02.00 on the night of Saturday 13 May as the capital celebrates Notte dei Musei or Night of Museums.
The 2023 edition of the popular initiative will include free performances of live music, concerts, theatre and dance in municipal museums, from 20.00 until 02.00, with last entry at 01.00.
There is a symbolic entry fee of just €1, unless otherwise specified, with 60 exhibitions and 130 concerts and live events scheduled in 80 venues.
Describing it as a "tradition much loved by Romans", the city's mayor Roberto Gualtieri said he hoped that this year's event will attract even more visitors than the 70,000 people who participated last year.
Among the long list of city museums participating are the Ara Pacis, Capitoline Museums, Centrale Montemartini and Trajan's Markets.
This is the 13th year that Rome has been involved in Museum Night which has taken place annually across Europe since 2005.
