Easter in Florence

What better way to visit Italy during the Easter holidays and organize a nice trip staying in one of the luxury villas for rent in Tuscany? As every year there are many things to do for the Holy Week throughout the territory: from festivals to concerts, from the performances in the squares to the open markets, there is something special for all tastes and all ages.

If the destination you have chosen is the “Cradle of the Renaissance”, here are the main events that you can not miss if you will spend your Easter in the city of Florence and its province.

On Monday 6, in Signa, there is the Feast of the Blessed Giovanna and the historical procession in her honor established in the year 1385 on the occasion of the translation of his body promoted by the "Worshipful Company of the Blessed Sacrament and the Holy Spirit." To follow, there will be  through the streets the historical parade in costumes of the 14th century and the spectacular show of flag bearers.

In Grassina in Bagno a Ripoli, in the area of Florence's province, there will be the Good Friday procession performed by eighty people to commemorate the Passion of Christ; and then the historical procession along the streets of the city with the participation of about five hundreds people in costume.

For the Palm Sunday in Greve, in the Chianti's area, we suggest to participate to the ceremony of the blessing palms that commemorates Jesus'triumphal entry into Jerusalem.

In Florence, during the Easter Sunday, you can attend to the ancient and traditional feast of the Explosion of the Cart escorted by musicians and flag bearers, which involves the burning of the dove, which actually is a rocket that looks like a white pigeon.
