The wonders of the Sistine Chapel, the harmonious beauty of Raphael’s Rooms or the Borgia Apartment masterfully merging sacred and profane themes, not to mention the extraordinary collection of ancient sculptures that bring the Rome of the Caesars to life: for the World Tourism Day, the masterpieces of the pontifical collections, with their unique and amazing itineraries, open to the public with free access following the usual schedule.

Promoted by the UN’s World Tourism Organization (WTO), World Tourism Day is commemorated each year on 27 September. Its purpose is to foster awareness among the global community of tourism’s social, cultural, political and economic value and the contribution the sector can make in reaching the Sustainable Development Goals. In 2019, in line with UNWTO’s focus on skills, education and jobs throughout the year, World Tourism Day will be a celebration on the topic “Tourism and Jobs: a better future for all”.
