Free museums in Rome

Musei Roma


Free museums in Rome. Visiting museums is good, but sometimes the ticket price can be too high, especially for those who want to enjoy this moment with their family.
My search for free museums starts from Milan, where there are several museums to visit, which sometimes you can visit for free, if you pay attention to opening times and days.
