The celebration of Christmas lasts until Epiphany, January 6, when La Befana is celebrated. Celebrations vary from city to city, with special highlights in Venice and Urbania in the Marche region. January is a great month for skiing in Italy, as many of the best resorts in the Alps and Dolomites are less crowded than in high season. On January 17, the feast of St. Anthony Abbot is celebrated in many towns in the north and center of the country. Bonfires, dances and toasts set the mood for the feast of the patron saint of butchers, domestic animals, basket makers and gravediggers.
In February, temperatures begin to rise, but it is still too early to put away your coat. The ski season reaches its peak coinciding with the school vacations, so the slopes are crowded. Temperatures range from 0°C in the Alps in the north to 15°C in the sunnier south.

One celebration stands out above all others in February, and that is Carnival. Although many towns hold these pre-Lenten celebrations, Venice’s festival is by far the most famous. The floating city is transformed into an open-air theater, filled with elaborate masks, stylized capes and lavish carnival balls with food and entertainment. Other notable carnivals are held in Viareggio, Verona and Ivrea, where there is a huge food war known as The Battle of the Oranges If you prefer not to play with your food, head to the Umbria region to the town of Nursia to sample the prized tartufo nero (black truffle).
Numerous festivals are held in April, from Milan’s Salone Internazionale del Mobile, which showcases eye-catching furniture, to the start of Florence’s Maggio Musicale Fiorentino, which fills the city with theatrical and musical performances. Verona has its annual Vinitaly wine and spirits exhibition, with tastings, workshops and book readings. April 25 brings a double dose of celebrations, as the whole country celebrates Liberation Day and Venice celebrates a big feast in honor of St. Mark, the city’s patron saint.
