Rome during April

Traveling to Venice, Florence and Rome during April, 2014 (4/19 arrival and departing on 4/21).

We have 2 weekends there - one of which includes Easter (4/20) and Good Friday (4/18).

Our preference was to go to Venice - then Florence - then Rome, however, this would have us in Rome on Easter Sunday. Not sure if it's ?more crowded" or ?not a good idea? to be in Rome on Easter Sunday plus Good Friday. Thus, we would switch order, making Rome the first part of the trip.

Thoughts? Thanks for replying.

Maybe you've written wrong dates....19 to 21 April, only three days?

Moreover start thinking as the Italians do: first day then month, it's gonna be easy when you'll be here.

Roman people probably will be out of the city during Easter Holidays and you can have the chance to see Catholic celebrations in the holy city.

Are you flying into one place and out the other? Or round trip out of one? That could definitely effect which one to see first versus last.

We've been in Rome during Easter, and while busy, it's an exciting time to be there. if staying there during Holy Week you'll definitely need to have your accommodations booked in advance (but you are starting planning early so you will be fine) and I would recommend a reservation for Easter dinner. Obviously, St. Peter's will be crowded. Here's some recent threads on this topic:
