A bank holiday weekend is in sight starting from Friday, 2nd June, and it will get you three days off. Here you are some pieces of advice to relax just before the final rush.
Art Cities such as Rome or Florence are always very appreciated. Walking across monuments with the warmth of the spring on your arms and visiting museums, a cultural heritage in most of the cities, will be very enjoyful. For the occasion, Strozzi Palace in Florence, proposing an interesting art exhibition of the international poets, and Pitti Palace will be opened.
The Capital instead presents the traditional exhibition of the Frecce Tricolore and a military parade, taking place every year in occasion of the National Holiday, followed by the apposition of a laurel wreath on the Altar of the Country. Several exhibitions take place during these days in the Eternal City, starting from the one dedicated to the artistic movement of the Macchiaioli at the Chiostro del Bramante, to the one dedicated to Bansky, taking place at the Museo del Corso as chosen by the foundation Roma Museo. During the first summer bank holidays is also possible having a pic nic at the open air thanks to the reopening of the Giardini della Ninfa, a green area considered as one of the best in Italy.
If, on the other hand, you prefer enjoying some sun and relax, you would better go to the several Italian Coasts, which are not crowded of summer tourists yet. In Acireale, in Sicily, you can join relax and all the fun of the “Festival dei Granatieri”, taking place in the city from the 2nd June until the 4th june included. In the Emilia Romagna region instead you can spend some days on a beach and go to the several parties and concerts organized in the most beautiful villages of the area. In Longiano you can taste some amazing cherries walking across the little street that will make you discover the city. In Pennabili, in the province of Ravenna, spectacles, concerts and jugglers have an appointment with the 20th international festival of the Street Art, the so called “Artisti In Piazza”, with over 60 different companies coming from all over the world.
Another important event that you should not miss is Buongiorno Ceramica!, an event promoted by the Italian Association Città della Ceramica, this year at its 3rd edition and including 36 Italian cities.
For 15 days there will be events and manifestations in order to valorize one of the most typical and beautiful artisanal product of the Made in Italy, the ceramic. Three days dedicated to the ceramic, presented in a wide range of shapes, colours and glazes all over the country, with a series of events focusing on the indisputable protagonist, the ceramic.
If you can’t leave Milan because you’re too busy instead, you still have the possibility of spend some of your time with one of the several events planned in the city. At the Exhibition Palace Novegro will take place the Far East Festival.
