It's celebrated over a long weekend from Good Friday to Easter Monday (Pasquetta), so expect stores, banks, and post offices to be closed, but with the influx of tourists, the Coliseum, Forum, archeological sites and museums keep normal hours. The first big event takes place at the Coliseum on Good Friday, when the Pope himself presides over the pagent of the Stations of the Cross. It begins with an afteroon religious service at Saint' Peter's Basilica. Then at 9 pm, a procession marches around the Coliseum where the fourteen stages have been laid out, accompanied by a huge cross and torches. Late Saturday night, mass is celebrated at the Vatican, with the Pope presiding and in most churches throughout Rome. Sunday morning mass in Saint Peter's Square is a huge spectacle, with banks of flowers, priests and nuns. Then the Pope delivers his blessing "Urbi et Orbi" from the legendary balcony.
