Free entry to state museums during Italy’s Culture Week, April 18-26

Talk about a place rich in culture and Italy will likely come to mind. There’s a reason why so many people are drawn there, like bees to honey: art, architecture, fashion, design, food, just to name a few.

If you’re an Italophile, you might want to make the trip over from April 18-26 during Italy’s Culture Week. Over the course of the week, you’ll be able to catch special events and get free entry to sites normally closed to visitors–including state museums and other artistic and historic sites.

For example, Rome’s Palazzo Mattei di Giove–a late-16th-century noble palace–will open specifically for the week-long event.
