Admission tickets in cultural places

The New Regulation of the Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities with the new requirements regarding the admission fees to monuments, museums, galleries, archaeological parks and monumental gardens will enter into force on 28 February, 2019.

From the 1st June 2019 the new admission fees will come into force to our cultural sites. The ticket reduced to 2 euros for people aged from 18 to 25 is already valid from February 28, 2019, as per Ministerial Decree 13/2019 which amended the Decree n.507 of 11 December 1997. The same facilities are applied to citizens of non-EU countries “on condition of reciprocity”.

Please, see all the changes in the pages of our places of culture in the “Museums” section!

Don’t waste your time, come and visit us! The growth of a territory passes through the knowledge of its cultural heritage 🙂
