Italy: Colosseum and Roman Forum reopen after three-month closure


The Colosseum, Roman Forum, and Palatine Hill reopened to the public on Monday, February 1st, after nearly three months of closure, because Italy eased restrictions on covid-19 in the Lazio region. 


To celebrate the reopening of the Colosseum, which has been closed since November 6, the students of the Cecilia Academy held a special concert in the ancient amphitheater. 


From February 1st, the Archaeological Park of the Colosseum is open to visitors from Monday to Friday from 10.30 to 16.30 (last admission at 15.30). 


However, like other museums and archaeological sites in Italy, the museum will be closed on weekends. 


Parco archeologico del Colosseo called the reopening a “symbol of hope,” he said: “Visitors will be able to wander through history again.”
