National Holiday Schedule

The Italian national holiday schedule is very useful to know in order to better plan your travel schedule as many places close on major holidays. While most of the main tourist attractions in the major cities are open year-round one has to be particularly aware of the national and municipal holiday schedules in order to avoid store and restaurant closures. Additionally, many of the smaller towns celebrate their own holidays which makes life a tad bit more difficult for the visitor.
