During the closing period all EUI buildings, with the exception of the Badia, will be totally closed and EUI ID card readers will be deactivated.

Only the Badia  Fiesolana will continue to be accessible by using your EUI ID card: access to the Badia will be possible via the pedestrian entrance in the Church square, via Villa Sanfelice Gate, via the pedestrian gate of the connecting road between Villa Schifanoia and the Badia, and via the gate of the Badia Fiesolana car park (see map for off-hours access)
