Easter is around the corner! With the spring upon us, the most uplifting Christian holiday approaches – and in most areas it coincides with the Spring Break, meaning that kids will have school out. If you have a few days off for the holiday, and don’t want to spend them at home cooking a boring Easter dinner and dyeing eggs, here are a few tips for destinations you can – and should – visit.
The Mediterranean is a great destination to visit during the Easter holidays. Inhabited by mostly Christian nations, there are countless Easter traditions to observe and countless foods and beverages to taste around the southern part of Europe. Make sure to avoid popular resorts, as many people choose these for a short getaway. A better choice would be Catalonia, with its authentic villages and incredible coastline, or the islands of Mallorca or Ibiza. Another great Easter destination is Greece, even with its financial turmoil. For an even better weather and some incredible sights to see Malta is a great spot.
To see some of the most authentic traditions and taste some of the best foods and beverages in the area Italy is a great choice. Sicily and Sardinia are great destinations around Easter, and not crowded yet, as the official tourist season is yet to start in these areas. Mainland Italy can also be a memorable destination in spring, especially the Southern areas of the country, where you can find welcoming people, superb beaches and all the services you are used to (so you can begin playing at redflushcasino.com at any time).
An alternative for tourists with a bit tighter budget would be Croatia, offering great value holidays to its visitors. (I know for a fact that, despite having a huge coastline with many tourist destinations, even people from Romania prefer to visit the Croatian resorts during their holidays, as they can get much better service for the same price as at home, or even cheaper). Croatia has something for everyone – you can visit the Dalmatian Coast and explore its archipelago of islands, while being lodged in a luxury hotel for some great rates during the off-season period.
Montenegro is an emerging destination for tourists, and it is located close to Croatia. The country has picturesque mountains to explore, beautiful lakes, historic towns, national parks and dozens of beaches to visit and relax at – and all this packed in one of the smallest countries in Europe.
Still in Europe, but still in a completely different world you can even plan a visit to Turkey during Easter. Not being a Christian country, you will likely not find any traditions linked to the holiday, but the vast culture of the country will make up for that.
