Top 5 Easter Holiday Destinations

Whereas most other European countries are deciding to spend their Easter holidays closer to home this year, British holiday makers are taking full advantage and venturing further abroad. If you are thinking about planning a last minute break then here are our Top 5 Easter holiday destinations.
Where better to celebrate Easter than in Rome. The Pope himself holds many of the masses and blessings that transform the Vatican into a prime destination for experiencing grand Easter ceremonies. St Peter’s Square and the world-famous Basilica are best for added pomp, but Easter celebrations are held in almost every church of the Italian capital.
New York
On Easter Sunday, New York’s Fifth Avenue is turned into a sea of extravagant bonnet. The parade dates back to 19th Century and is a great event for anyone who loves festivities. The action revolves around Manhattan’s neo-Gothic St Patrick’s Cathedral.
Rio de Janeiro
Rio de Janeiro is taken over by colour processions in celebration of Semana Santa (Holy Week). Watch in wonder as the city’s streets are decorated with flower carpets. Once you have seen enough of the procession you can wind down and relax on the beautiful Copacabana beach.
Byron Bay
Arrange a holiday to Byron Bay and you’ll get to experience their Easter festival. Blues fans will be in their element at Bluesfest, a five-day blues festival that brings the likes of Ben Harper to the laid-back Australian town. The climate is pleasantly mild at this time and the Pacific still warm enough for swimming.
The glitzy, futuristic city-state of Dubai is the place to go for an Easter holiday with a difference. Kids hunt for Easter eggs in the fake snow of the Ski Dubai complex, while camels carry visitors towards Bedouin-style working farms to celebrate Easter in the middle of the desert.
