Hello everyone! Sorry for the delay this week! I was travelling yesterday. Better late than never, eh?!
This Sunday, 5th, is #domenicaalmuseo, so all state run museums, galleries etc. are FREE!
In conjunction with #domenicaalmuseo, and due to the large number of tourists of late, on Sunday 5th July, Pompeii is visitable in two different time slots, from 9.00 – 12.30, and from 14.30 until closing.
Throughout June, July and August, there is ‘Cinema intorno al Vesuvio‘ – open air cinema at San Sebastiano al Vesuvio.
Starting on Friday 26th and every Friday night in July, there is ‘Aperitivo in the woods‘ at Oasi WWF Cratere degli Astroni.
As part of ‘In the footsteps of the Grand Tour‘, there are the following events: Every Sunday in May, June, July, September and October, for ‘The Campania of Wines‘, there are guided tours with dedicated transport to villages, castles, archaeological remains and museums combined with winery tours and wine tastings between art, history and traditions; Every Saturday from May to October, for ‘The Campania of Flavours‘, there are guided tours with dedicated transport in art places, villages and monuments combined with visits to producers to observe the production process, flavor workshops and tastings of typical products in order to discover and appreciate the Slow Food Presidia and products of excellence in Campania; Every Sunday in May, October and November, for ‘The Campania of Music‘, there are a series of events with guided tours to the notes of melodies that have enchanted and captivated the world, breaking down the barriers between classical and folk music. In melody, everything… Starting on 28th June and running until 13th September, is ‘Campania by Night‘. At nightfall the archaeological sites of Herculaneum, Paestum, Minori and the nature of Vesuvius return to life beneath the stars.
From 15th June until 19th July, there are special summer camps for children, organised through PAN. ‘Discover the City 2015‘ is a weekly study program to meet the needs of the families in the summer period, when school has finished, but families aren’t yet on holiday.
