Florence's Scoppio del Caro is Italy's biggest Easter Sunday festival, in which a large, ornate oxen-drawn cart is escorted into the main piazza by a parade of dancers, soldiers, musicians, then loaded with fireworks. The fuse is lit from inside the cathedral, which burns through the church and ignites the cart, resulting in an incredible display of explosives and pyrotechnics. The perfect addition to an Easter break to Italy's most beautiful city, an April city break to Florence is fun and exciting for the whole family!
