Natale con i tuoi, Pasqua con chi vuoi. It is a popular saying in Italy. It basically means that a person must be with family (“miei” is an idiomatic expression for “parents”) for Christmas but free to choose with whom to be on Eastern.
For this reason every Italian is starting to look around for organizing his Easter Holiday for the long weekend Friday 14th to Monday 17th of April.
And what about you?
April is an ideal month for enjoying many beautiful destinations in Italy. The weather is warm, Spring is on the air, the nature blooms and the arrival of the season brings good humor (allergic excluded). Italy is a blaze of colors and invites us to travel, organize and propose travels to our customers.
Let’s have a look to our suggestions for your next holiday in Italy. We will be glad to assist you.
