Night of Archaeology 2014

Summer nights in Tuscany are also about archaeology! Yes, because “The Nights of Archaeology” are back! For the entire month of July, museums, parks and all the other archaeological sites of Tuscany will open their doors, with extraordinary night tours and special events.

The programme is incredibly wide and varied, offering history and entertainment, nature and food, hiking (well, “archaeohiking” in fact), music. theatre and activities for children. Hundreds of events that can be found here (in Italian, sorry!).

And if you are fond of archeology, remember that July is the last chance to see two interesting temporary exhibitions, one in Florence - “Cortona. The dawn of Etruscan princes” - and one in Cortona - “Etruscan Seduction”.
