Museums night in Italy (Notte dei Musei)

On Saturday night (19th May) Italian state museums and archaeological sites will be open free from 8pm to 2am, with special events taking place. Highlights include night-time visits to the Villa d'Este at Tivoli, readings from the classics in the archaeological museum in Venice, and music at the Uffizi gallery in Florence.
You see a list of participating museums and search for events by region at http://www.beniculturali.it/mibac/export/MiBAC/sito-MiBAC/Contenuti/MibacUnif/Eventi/visualizza_asset.html_305741442.html
It's a good way to save money and to see sights in a completely different way.

Also taking place this weekend is the Sensa festival in Venice (see What's on in Venice).
