Rome will disclose some of her secret treasures this weekend: on May 23rd and 24th the “Open Courtyards Rome” event will allow anyone to visit courtyards which are normally closed to public as being part of private properties, although historical.
The event is organized once a year by the Italian Association of Historical Houses (ADSI – Associazione Dimore Storiche Italiane) and is free of charge for visitors, who will benefit also from the explanations by the ADSI’s guides and the owners of the buildings.
These private historical properties, mostly located in the heart of the city, will be open from 10am to 7pm.
