Easter in Tuscany: nature, relaxation and authentic flavors

Easter is one of the most awaited events of the year: it is a synonymous with rebirth, spiritual and physical. Rebirth of nature, which slowly begins to come out of the winter torpor and to get dressed in the colors and fragrances of spring.

And thinking of nature, Tuscany immediately leaps to mind: the green hills before our eyes, the perfumes of the wild woods, the soft grass tickling the palms. The Monsignor della Casa resort is surrounded by such wonders because there is not a more precious jewel in the area of Mugello.

Colors, flowers, endless shades draw fairytale landscapes in the real world, the scents of beech and chestnut trees accompany you step by step. Easter holidays in Tuscany are an excellent opportunity to immerse yourself in meditative walks and holistic paths, such as the ones we organize for our guests.

If you prefer biking instead of hiking, a stay at Monsignor della Casa is perfect for you: the unspoiled nature, the cool and sunny weather of spring, a country chic refuge waiting for you at the end of the day. And our electric bicycles: thanks to the assisted pedaling, reaching hill expanses or mountain paths will be just a pleasure. The boundless wonders of Tuscany fulfil every kind of cyclist, from the lover of the historic villages, to the sportsman up to those dreaming about the absolute quiet of the countryside.

At the Monsignor della Casa you will satisfy your eyes with beauty and your soul with moments of peace, you will breathe all the fragrances of spring nature, but you will also fully satisfy your palate. Tuscany and the land of Mugello boast an ancient gastronomic tradition, with roots in local ingredients, genuine recipes and intense flavors. The fresh homemade pasta (especially the Mugello tortelli of potatoes) and the cereal soups, the game and the cheeses with penetrating aromas, the best wine and oil in Italy. These are just a few tastes of a typical Tuscan dinner at our restaurant L'Enoteca del Monsignore, furnished in refined country chic style.

In the Easter period, the steak is accompanied by the lamb, cooked in many ways, and on the table the lucky eggs cannot miss. The delicious Easter desserts give the perfect final touch to the dinner: the colomba (dove shaped) and the chocolate eggs of course, but in Tuscany also the pan di ramerino (with rosemary and raisins\), the schiacciata di Pasqua and the quaresimali, the favorite of children (cookies with cocoa and representing the alphabet). All these delights are exalted in the encounter with the aromatic wine vinsanto, locally produced.

The days in April get longer, the sun gets warmer, the air is warm enough for a pleasant get away out of town. What about discovering one of the most visited cities in the world while staying at our resort Monsignor della Casa? Florence is only 30 minutes away from us, by car or train, and the short journey takes you among endless wonders. A simple walk unveils the thousand faces of the cradle of the Renaissance, full of history, art, culture and high fashion boutiques.

Between a museum and a romantic picture on the Ponte Vecchio, you could attend the suggestive Scoppio del Carro (The Burst of the Cart), scheduled on every Easter Sunday at 10 a.m. in Piazza del Duomo. The tradition dates back more than three centuries, but each year it is dressed with new magic, attracting both Florentines and tourists with the glances on the flight of Colombina (a dove shaped rocket).
