Easter in Italy: 5 Things You Have to Know

Easter in Italy: 5 Things You Have to Know | Italia Mia |

Easter in Italy is a major holiday—in some ways, it’s even more important than Christmas! Celebrated on the first Sunday after the first full moon after the spring equinox (yes, we’re confused too), Easter in 2013 falls on Sunday, March 31. (And if you want to sound like a local, don’t call it Easter… call it Pasqua!).
If you’re going to be in Italy during the Easter holidays, here are 5 things to expect!

  1. The cities will be full of tourists—but many Italians will be on vacation
  2. Most major museums and sights will be open on Easter Sunday and Monday, but many shops and restaurants will be closed
  3. There will be lots of religious processions and festivals, including in the small towns
  4. Restaurant menus, and bakeries, will be full of traditional Easter dishes and sweets
  5. Want to really Easter like an Italian? Then picnic on Pasquetta
