1) What works during holidays in Italy? BE AWARE OF NATIONAL HOLIDAYS

In Italy, the national holidays are as follows:

  • January 1st: New Year – Capodanno
  • January 6th: Epiphany of the Lord
  • In April: Easter (date that varies)
  • The Monday after Easter Sunday – Pasquetta

2) What works during holidays in Italy? CHRISTMAS AND NEW YEAR

Well, on January 1st and December 25th (almost) EVERYTHING closes! Read also What to do at Christmas in the main Italian cities?

  • Some restaurants work(*);
  • hotels follow ‘normal schedule’;
  • for obvious reasons, public transport may change schedules and some routes, as some streets close for festivities, so ask for information at your hotel about where to eat and in relation to public transport, OK?;
  • Churches also open, but schedules may change.

(*) The restaurants, both on the night of December 24th and lunch on the 25th, serve a special Christmas menu, so it is important to keep two things in mind: it will be a little more expensive and you may not find availability. So, I suggest booking in advance. The same goes for December 31st and January 1st. Also Read Where to go for Christmas and New Year’s Eve in Italy?

3) What works during holidays in Italy? OTHER HOLIDAYS

On other holidays, the pace slows down a bit in the big cities, but most museums and sights work normally, as well as larger stores, malls, bars and restaurants. Also read What are the Free Attractions in Italy on the first Sunday of each month?

4) What works during holidays in Italy? HOLIDAYS IN SMALL CITIES

In smaller cities, things get a bit complicated during the holidays and it varies A LOT from one city to another, and from owner to owner of establishments. There are people who open at reduced hours, people who do not open, people who open only in the afternoon and others only in the morning. In smaller cities, the same goes for the restaurants: many of them don’t make a point of opening and the owners take the opportunity to relax.

Open shops during holidays in the smaller towns are almost a divine miracle (but it’s possible!). Most churches open normally, but some sights may not open. Transport can also change and the waiting time for trains and buses can increase, but nothing absurd. Holidays are great times to walk around the cities peacefully! Take the opportunity to pay attention to the architectural details, see the movement of the places and take a leisurely walk. It can be surprising!
