Easter in this part of the world

PasquaDid you know that the centre of Italy has some amazing processions for Easter? It is cultural tourism at its best! Cortona, Castiglion Fiorentino, Foiano and Arezzo, to name just a few places that are within 30 minutes of Casa Leone, celebrate with prayers and hymns along the Via Crucis – the Way of the Cross. In Cortona, for instance, the cross stops in front of mosaics created by Gino Severini in 1947 on its way up to the Basilica di Santa Margherita, where the body of Saint Margaret of Cortona who was born in 1247 in Laviano, five minutes from Castiglione del Lago, lies in full view still today.
