Settimana Santa – Holy Week in Vatican City


popeEven if you’re not Catholic (heck, even if you’re not religious), being in Vatican City on Easter weekend might just be worth braving the crowds. If you happen to be in Rome this weekend, here’s the Pope’s schedule. It actually began on April 1, because the whole week is holy. (You might already know this, but I had no idea until I read it just now.)

At any rate, here’s the weekend schedule:

Saturday, April 7 – Holy Saturday
Easter Vigil in the Holy Night, Vatican Basilica, 10 p.m.
