National Public Holidays in Italy

A calendar of the national vacation days when businesses, schools and banks close and people get the day off across the provinces of Italy...

In Italy, a public holiday is called a giorno festivo, while a national holiday is a festa nazionale.

  • Each region celebrates different saints and festivals and although it may not be a general holiday, business may close to take part in the celebrations
  • If the holiday falls on a Tuesday or a Thursday it is common for people to take the intervening day to make the "bridge" for a long weekend: fare il ponte
