In this short article we will list of things you can do on a holiday during Easter in Rome. Easter is one of the largest and most important feasts of Christianity when we celebrate the Resurrection of Jesus Christ.
During Easter several programs and different activities are waiting for everyone in Rome. Easter in Rome is pretty exciting but be prepared that the majority of the restaurants, museum, shops and bars will be closed on Easter Monday and Easter Sunday.
On Good Friday there is a Mass with the Pope at St. Peter’s Basilica which start at 5 in the afternoon and the Way of the Cross starts in the evening at 9.15 and the Pope stops 14 times on the way to recall and remember the walk of Jesus to the cross. Even if you are not really religious it is still s fun program to see the pope. Finding a restaurant which is open during Easter might be tricky so you better be prepared and book your tables at the chosen restaurant as soon as possible.
A holiday during Easter is a perfect opportunity to get to know the Italian culture, habits and traditions a little more.
Some cool Easter programs in Rome
Visit the Vatican
If you first visit Rome during Easter you must of course visit the St. Peters Basilica, the Sistine chapel and the Vatican museum. But, that can require you to stand in line for a long time, so why not skip the line and book your tour and tickets ahead. If that sounds cool, you can do so at the following site:

What better way to see Rome than to go on a River Cruise on the river Tiber. There are different cruise options, but the best is of course to enjoy Easter in Rome while sitting on a boat with some delicious food served at your plate. There are not always river cruises available in Rome during Easter, due to a short season in which these cruises are available, so if they are not, then we recommend a brilliant walking food tour in Rome instead, something that is cool, and will let you meet other food lovers who have the same passion as you, Italian food.
