Also, this the last Sunday of the carnival coincides with the first Sunday of March and the appointment with #DomenicaalMuseo .
The Colosseum, Roman Forum and Palatine, then, together with the Capitoline Museums, Castel Sant’Angelo, the Ostia Antica, Villa Adriana and Villa d’Este and many other museums in Rome will be free admission throughout the day.
The complete list of open museums can be found on Official website of Rome Capital
As for the Colosseum, entry will be contingent and queues will be quite long, especially in the morning. We therefore recommend, if possible, to go in the afternoon (admission closes at 16:00).
For the Roman Forum and the Palatine, however, we recommend avoiding the entrance in front of the Colosseum because it is always the most crowded and use the entrance on Via di San Gregorio or the Largo Corrado Ricci, along Via dei Fori Imperiali.
