On the first Sunday of the month museums are free in Rome.
Admission free days can be the opportunity to enjoy art and antique collections as well as the main museums of the Italian capital, in a journey through the most beautiful venues of the city. Start your visit from the magnificent Baths of Diocletian, 5 minutes’ walk from Hotel Corallo: it is the largest baths complex in Ancient Rome, hosting Michelangelo’s Cloister of Charterhouse.
At Palazzo Barberini, on the other hand, you can admire some of the masterpieces by Raphael, Caravaggio, Titian and many more Italian and European artists, in the wonderful setting of this 17th-century palace designed by Bernini and Borromini.
Some other not-to-be-missed destinations are the Colosseum - one of the world seven wonder s of the world - and the Roman Forum, gathering some of the most important testimonies of the political and religious life in Ancient Rome. Erected in 25 BC and completed in the 2nd century AD, the Pantheon - the best preserved of all Ancient Roman buildings - is also a must-see. Its dome is 43 metres high 43 metres in diameter, making it the largest concrete dome in the world until modern times.
This is only a hint of over 60 museums offering free admission on the first Sunday of the month. To visit them all, just head off to Rome and stay at Hotel Corallo!
