The first Sunday of the paschal full-moon in March or April is known as Easter Sunday, which is a religious holiday.
The week prior to or after Easter Sunday is typically spring break for school-age children, so families plan weekend or week-long vacations. Mom and dad may even plan a private getaway for two, which would allow their children to spend the holiday with their grandparents.
If mom and dad want to getaway without the children this Easter, Rome, Italy is one of the top destinations for Easter travel in 2013. A couple can dine at one of Rome’s romantic restaurants, or attend one the many Easter festivals. Couples can also go out and enjoy the various sights in Rome, including: the Trevi fountain, the Pantheon, and the famous Colosseum. Many travelers like to attend Easter services at or near St. Peter’s Basilica on Saturday evening or Sunday morning in Vatican City.
The top Easter travel for a group of friends or colleagues is Mexico. Cancun and Acapulco are the popular destinations in Mexico for 2013. Travelers can enjoy the fabulous nightlife and unique cuisine while visiting Mexico this holiday season. There are beautiful beaches and other attractions for vacationers to enjoy. Most hotels offer free shuttles so visitors do not have a hard time commuting to restaurants, retail stores or nightclubs.
The top Easter travel destinations change each year, but travelers are almost always guaranteed an unforgettable vacation.
