Historical Residences Day 2023: villas, castles and gardens open in Florence

On Sunday 21 May, on the occasion of ADSI National Day, many places can be visited free of charge

Italy's largest diffuse museum reopens its doors. Sunday 21 May sees the return of the National Day of the Italian Historic Houses Association, this year in its 13th edition. 

More than 400 exclusive places such as castles, fortresses, villas, parks and gardens will be open to the public free of charge, in an immersion in the history that still makes our country identifiable in the world today and that could be a pivot for long-term sustainable development. Once again this year, the region of Tuscany holds the record for the number of openings: as many as 120 private residences distributed in all the provinces.

Numerous initiatives are promoted by the owners for the National Day: from exhibitions to concerts and theatre performances, to intercept the needs of the public of all age groups. The photo competition in collaboration with Photolux for Instagram users is also back.
Let's take a detailed look at all the openings planned in Florence. Visits are free, online booking is compulsory HERE.
