Marked by strong Catholic influences, Italy is a spectacle at Easter time. In Florence, the centuries-old traditions of this religious festival are still carried out, like the Chariot Explosion. On Easter morning, a chariot is dragged by white oxen through the city, from Piazzale del Prato to the Cathedral, before catching fire and illuminating the sky of Florence with an enchanting firework display. Take advantage of this celebration to really soak up the atmosphere of Florence, strolling through its lively streets and exploring the grandiose monuments.
If you're looking for a peaceful holiday, choose the Tuscan countryside over Florence. Rent one of our luxury villas in Tuscany and organize a life-size Easter egg hunt for your children. They will love running through the orchards, olive trees and vineyards to find their prizes. Meanwhile, the grown-ups can get busy in the kitchen alongside an Italian chef who will teach you the secrets of preparing traditional Easter recipes. On the menu: pasta with lamb ragout and Italian brioche!
