Spend Easter in Italy at Francis Ford Coppola's Palazzo Margherita

Spend Easter in Italy at Francis Ford Coppola's Palazzo Margherita
Easter is also a time to celebrate new beginnings and to revel in all the splendors this glorious life has to offer. The Family Coppola Hideaways' Palazzo Margherita welcomes you and your family to celebrate Easter this year in Basilicata, Italy, one of the world's most magnificent regions where culture, food and tradition remain rich and preserved from modern tourism.

Set in the charming town of Bernalda, the birthplace of Coppola's grandfather, Palazzo Margherita delights guests with award-winning palatial rooms and suites, delicious cuisine, endless amenities and 5-star hospitality. In the springtime, the Palazzo's historic private garden is in full bloom, the days are longer and the temperature is perfect – creating a wonderful backdrop for the sacred holiday.

This Easter, we have created a special itinerary which features the authentic culture, cuisine, history and religious festivities of our unique and welcoming land. Palazzo Margherita's Easter package includes an all-inclusive 6-day stay, featuring an immersive array of authentic Pasqua, or Easter, celebrations done the Italian way. Accompanied by our skillful guides, guests will have the pleasure of experiencing a number of Holy sites and local Pasqua events such as the Easter millennial procession through the historical center of Taranto; a guided tour through the Ghost City of Craco; a visit to the mid-18th century Holy Convent of S. Pasquale of the Alcantarini order of monks; and Easter mass in an age-old Romanesque church located in nearby Matera, a UNESCO World Heritage site and the European Capital of Culture for 2019.

Guests will also have the pleasure of visiting Bernalda's farms, fish markets and casaros, or local dairies, and learning from Palazzo's Chef Tommaso with customized cooking lesson followed by “giropizza,”or a family style meal, in the Palazzo's dine-in kitchen. The trip will culminate in a typical Southern Italian barbecue on Easter Monday where guests will enjoy a bountiful feast of grilled meat and vegetables, and a sumptuous buffet of traditional sweets while an Easter egg hunt ensues for the children in the paths of our garden.
