The heart of southern italy - An Unexpected Easter: In The Heart of Southern Italy

An Unexpected Easter: April 15th – April 23rd, 2019

Be enraptured as you  journey to the heart of Easter in Southern Italy. From processions to pasta-making to picnics in the countryside, you’ll be delighted by the whimsical springtime sights, scents and traditions.  Highlights include Lecce, Taranto, Matera, Gallipoli, Manduria and Pasquetta in Acaya.

Overview:

Prepare for a journey into the deep South, where religion and food mix for a rich and tasty combination of unexpected sights, sounds, feelings and flavors. You’ll be based in Lecce, a.k.a “the Florence of the South”, where you’ll live, firsthand, the unique cultural events that few outsiders ever get to experience.

Be amazed by the awe-inspiring “Procession of Mysteries” in Taranto, where hooded penitents march barefoot through the streets on Good Friday. While on Easter Monday you’ll relax with a stroll through nature and a countryside picnic lunch, as per Italian tradition.

You’ll also discover some of the most beautiful and charming towns in Southeastern Italy, including 9,000-year-old Matera, the former Spartan colony of Taranto, and Manduria, Puglia’s wine capital, for a truly breathtaking experience of the cultural gems hidden down south.
