Hopefully by now, you’ve all had the opportunity to take advantage of the Metro A’s temporary return to normal operating hours (that a pre-midnight closure is considered normal operating hours in a major European capital is still something with which I take exception, but we’ll leave that aside for now), but if not a quick reminder that from now until January 16th the Metro A will stay open until 11:30pm Sunday-Friday (with the 1:30 am Saturday night closure remaining as well).
Additionally, the city’s Musei in Comune are ignoring their usual weekly closure for the next few weeks and keeping the doors open on Monday. Of course, they will be closed for Christmas Day and New Year’s Day, but on Monday, December 26th and Monday, January 2nd (2012!!!!), everything from the Capitoline Museums to the various MACROs (MACRi?) will be open according to the special schedule, found here.
So if you’re looking for a place to work off that Christmas meal with a bit of culture and time spent on your feet, check out the Michelangelo v. Leonardo at the Capitoline or the newly opened Ombre di Guerra at the Ara Pacis.
