Unlike over here, Easter or ‘Pasqua’ is a major holidays in Italy but you may not be surprised to hear that from a strong Catholic and religious country.
The real traditions of Italy can only be truly experienced if you’re actually there. Staying in Italy around Easter time is much better when planned prior. Often, many hotels will require pre-booking and transport runs less frequently.
The Easter tradition within Italy is to take to the rolling hills of the country with a picnic in one hand, and friends and family by your side. Bask in the hot sun, whilst indulging on your Easter eggs before they melt! As well as relaxing in the breathtaking Italian country side, you can head towards larger towns and cities where you can witness some… shall we say, not so average Easter activities.
For example, Panicale the town of Umbrian rolls giant wheels of cheese around the town’s walls, the one who completes it in the quickest time using the least strokes – wins! Or Florence, where they release a dove shaped rocket that flies out of the Duomo on Easter morning and lights a cart covered with fireworks!
