All Museums in Rome Free to Public From March 25-31!
Hurray! This week, all museums and archaeological sites in Rome are offering free admission on the occasion of the "Week of Culture." Of course, this time of year-just after Easter- is notoriously crowded, but certainly free admission to the most famous museums and sites (and the not-so-famous museums and sites) will alleviate some of your frustration with the crowds. The Modern Traveler's suggestion is to get in to museums and sites like the Capitoline Museum or the Roman Forum early-when the doors open. Or wait until the last admittance of the day. Tourists tend to hit the shops in the late afternoon!
