- Most of Italy goes to the southern beach towns.
- Rome, Florence, and Venice are still busy with tourists.
- Lots of cities such as Padova, Verona, and Milan quite down.
- August 15 is the actual holiday. Research where you are at this time and chances are you’ll find a festival to attend. Apparently, they say Sienna is the place to go and one day, I will.
My husband and I were in Padova for Ferragosto and I must say, they did a beautiful job! They had foreign celebrities preform and even fireworks. It was absolutely magical.
