All you need to know to visit Rome at Easter
Easter is a wonderful time to visit Rome. The months of March and April in Rome, when Easter weekend falls, are perfect from a meteorological point of view in Rome and religious celebrations.
For the visitor, Easter does not pose major problems in Rome.
However, Easter is a big holiday for Christians and affects the number of people in Rome (it’s very crowded!) And you need to plan well to visit the Vatican City.
People travel from all over the world to participate in the Easter celebrations in the Vatican. It is a big event with processions and services taking place every day over the Easter weekend. Pope Francis will celebrate each of them.
Of significant impact is the “Via Crucis”, a procession that takes place at the Colosseum and moves along the Roman Forum to the Palatine Hill. The Pope will remember the journey made by Jesus holding the cross, stopping in 14 places that represent the Via Crucis. This is an extremely popular event, so you can’t miss it.
Easter Saturday, also known as Holy Saturday, is when the Easter Vigil is celebrated by Pope Francis in St. Peter’s Basilica. You can head to St. Peter’s Square to be part of it.
The Easter Sunday mass will be in St. Peter’s Basilica as usual, it is free, but to participate it is necessary to book tickets well in advance. To follow, at 12.00, the “Urbi et Orbi” blessing.
The day after Easter is also called Easter Monday, and in the Catholic liturgical calendar, Monday of the Octave of Easter.
If you stay in the city, as usual Rome offers many alternatives: exhibitions, theater shows and concerts and even free tours to discover Rome in the evening.
