Giornate FAI di Primavera: Explore Rome’s secret sites

Noted Italian buildings open specially on 24 and 25 March.

Around 1,000 libraries, palaces, archaeological sites and religious buildings across Italy are open to the public free of charge on 24 and 25 March, as part of the 26th annual spring open days organised by the Fondo Ambiente Italiano (FAI). Many of the sites participating in the Giornate FAI di Primavera initiative are not normally accessible to the public.
Some of the Roman treats in store this year include tours around Villa Massimo, Teatro Villa Torlonia, Villa Blanc and Palazzo Giustiniani. The complete list of participating buildings and monuments, as well as their visiting times, can be seen on the FAI website.
Similar to Britain’s National Trust, FAI works to preserve and promote Italy’s cultural heritage through education, restoration and annual open days.
