Where to spend the Easter holidays in Italy
Pen and paper and a bit of imagination. We are about to take you on a journey to discover the most popular destinations for Easter holidays in Italy.
The Easter holiday is the first opportunity to try to unplug a little from everyday life, organising a small trip or a trip out of town. Precisely because the time available is not so much, here are some destinations for the Easter holidays in the North, the Centre and the South. Finding the perfect one will be child’s play.
Easter holidays in Northern Italy
Those who prefer Northern Italy have a number of destinations to choose from. Here are just a few examples to give advice to all those travellers who are planning their next trip.
Genoa could certainly be a perfect destination for those who love the sea, good food and even art. The mild climate in April and the many things to do and see make the city very attractive for those who want to indulge in a bit of healthy relaxation.
A stroll through Genoa’s historic centre will allow you to fully enjoy its countless historical and architectural beauties. After all, the city brings with it a wealth of very interesting history and traditions just waiting to be discovered. Easter, then, is a very special moment and it is possible to attend the traditional Easter rites that come to life in the historic heart of the city. For those who want to combine religion and art, this is the best time.
And for those who love sport? Staying in Liguria, we recommend trekking in the Cinque Terre, an excellent opportunity to enjoy the sea, nature and exercise.
Another destination could be Venice. After all, it is always the right time to visit the Serenissima. With the days getting longer and the temperatures becoming more and more pleasant, this is one of the destinations to prefer. Especially for those looking for a romantic weekend, because the air in Venice exudes love. Of course, there’s so much more, since the city is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and there’s so much to see in terms of history and architecture. Murano and Burano are also not to be missed.
For those who want to go to the Veneto but also spend some time at the seaside, we recommend Jesolo as a destination. Not only the sea, but also a lot to discover and do.
If, on the other hand, you want to visit a city a little further away from the classic tourist destinations, we recommend Mantua. Some of the treasures of the Risorgimento and the Gonzagas are kept here. For those who don’t know, Mantua has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2009, thanks to its beauties such as the Ducal Palace, which houses Mantegna’s frescoes, the Palazzo del Te, the porticoes and the Clock Tower.
Easter holidays in Italy: the Center
Moving towards Central Italy we have many other suggestions for Easter holidays in Italy. Which ones? Let’s find out together.
Certainly one of the most beautiful regions is Tuscany. There is so much to see here, including Florence, Siena, Pisa and the medieval villages of San Gimignano and Montalcino. Tuscany is art, nature, traditions, good food and the sea. For those who want to visit the Tuscan coast this is a perfect opportunity because there are not so many tourists.
Of course, Lazio is also one of the most popular destinations. Rome, the Eternal City, is the most popular of all, but discovering Lazio’s most beautiful sea is also very interesting. There are some great surprises to be had: try it for yourself.
And what about Ancona and the Conero? Here too there is much to do and discover. If you want to combine a bit of relaxation with a few days by the sea, there should be no doubt: the beaches of the Marche are the solution.
Easter in Italy: the South and islands
Southern Italy and the islands are among the most popular destinations not only for Italians but also for tourists. There is so much to see here and you are spoilt for choice between Naples, Bari or Palermo. Those who love historical cities can easily find their destination.
And let’s not forget that in the South and on the Islands, the sea is king. Any advice? We’re ready for you.
Tropea and the Costa degli Dei could be a destination, but the Valle d’Itria with all its beauty is not to be underestimated. What do the two destinations have in common? Scenic beauty, no doubt, and good food.
If you’re in the mood for romance, you could choose Sorrento or the Amalfi Coast in general. Destinations that certainly don’t need any introduction, but are always worthwhile when trying to organise an unforgettable holiday.
And Sardinia? We also have some suggestions for those who want to organise their Easter holidays in Sardinia. For those who want to have the opportunity to get to know the Sardinian region from the sea to the mountains, we recommend the experience of the Trenino Verde di Sardegna, a gem that allows you to travel up and down a historic route to discover this land.
