The Vatican Museums are offering free entry to medical workers in appreciation for their work on the front line of Italy's coronavirus outbreak.
Doctors, nurses, and all other staff members of Italy's public and private health facilities will have free entry to the museums on June 8-13.
The announcement June 3 came as Italy opened its regional borders, allowing doctors throughout the country to visit Rome.
The Vatican is also offering free entry for the next two weeks to the Pontifical Villas and gardens at Castel Gandolfo, which are due to reopen for weekend visits starting June 6.
