Public Holidays

Public holidays in Italy 2021-2025

As a Catholic country, Italy also offers an almost complete list of all Christian holidays. Easter Sunday and Pentecost Sunday are not included here (as in Switzerland, for example), as these fall on a Sunday anyway.

Joseph's Day, Corpus Christi and also Peter and Paul were abolished as public holidays in 1977. Good Friday is well known throughout the country, but it is only celebrated by really strict Catholics.

New Year's Eve is not really a public holiday, but it is celebrated throughout Italy and Germany. On this day most shops are closed from noon at the latest.
