    Default Easter opening hours

    Arriving in Pisa at 8pm on the Holy Saturday (April 15) this easter. Plan to travel Tuscany with rental car mainly staying in self catered apartments/villas, but are a bit worried if we will be able to purchase food these first days.

    Are food shops and restaurants open on the Easter Sunday and Monday (April 16-17)?

    Any difference between the rural areas or the larger cities?

    Default Easter Sunday


    Times have definitely changed in Tuscany and whereas a few years ago the answer would have been a resounding...no stores open, today it is possible that you will find someone open. Having said this, I will also add that Easter is a rather important holiday - so maybe Easter Sunday no, you won't find many open but Saturday they will all be open, and on Monday many will be open if only for a half day.

    You will find restaurants are open in Easter Sunday - and you will find that there are several cafes that are open which also have a mini-mart.

    Of course the larger cities will probably have many supermarkets open - but you will find that the restaurants and cafes are open the same in rural areas as urban.

    Buon Viaggio,

    Donna Denise
