Starting from April 3, there will be free access for all visitors to state museums, archaeological parks and cultural sites every first Sunday of the month, following a hiatus due to the pandemic.

State sites are added to the municipal ones that are included in the Domenica Metropolitana programme which allows residents of the metropolitan city of Florence to visit city museums for free on first Sundays.
