Rick Steves European Easter Paperbook

Product Description

Rick Steves, America's expert on Europe, explores the rich traditions, celebration, and history behind some of Europe's most colorful and charming Easter celebrations. Discover Carnevale in Venice, Lent in Cantiano, Holy Week in Sevilla, Easter Sunday in Greece and beyond.

Rick examines "Easter Through the Ages," including the Biblical story of Easter and the pagan and secular traditions that have shaped the Easter celebrations of today. He compares the belief of Easter and western Orthodox traditions, and shows holidays are uniquely celebrated across cities and countries. In Rome, the Vatican blesses palm fronds on Palm Sunday, while in Tuscany, olive branches are blessed instead. Churches in Sevilla display elaborate floats for Easter Sunday, while villages across Italy, Slovenia, and Greece celebrate with feasts.

Touching on Italy, Slovenia, Switzerland, and Greece, and the Vatican, and filled with fascinating insight and vibrant full-color photos, "Rick Steves European Easter" is a delightful way to understand Easter heritage from a multicultural perspective.
