Being a Catholic country, most of the national holidays in Italy and her regions are religious based. They include holidays like saint’s days, religious feasts, Easter, and Christmas. On such holidays, the Italians are rewarded with a day off work and the entire country comes to a standstill with even the biggest tourist sites shutting up shop for the day. A typical national holiday in Italy is marked with church celebrations, festivals, parades, and big family feasts, and if it’s a political holiday, fireworks. Typically, this is a time that families gather and celebrate together. Large traditional Italian feasts are cooked, and the whole family, which is bound to include a number of generations, will sit around a large table and eat, drink and talk for hours. Heading out onto the streets in Italy is fun when there’s a celebration, but celebrating a national holiday with your Italian personal guide would be ideal. You’ll learn more about the culture, practice the Italian you’ve picked up and have a fun-filled day that will leave you with great memories of your Italian experience.
