During the weekend, around 8 December, during the Italian feast “Annunciation”, museum night takes place in many Roman museums. Admission is for a nominal fee, but you have to be aware of queues.
Night wandering around the Capitoline Museum or Forum of Nerva and Trajan is for sure an unforgettable experience. There is still time to plan a trip. We should also remember that in Rome, just at the beginning of December, women celebrated secret mysteries in honor of the Great Goddess, the so-called Feast of Bona Dei. This proves how many Christian holidays have replaced their previous counterparts.
