Florence or Venice for Easter?

We are going to be in Italy for about 9 days, spending some time in Venice and some time in Florence/Tuscany. Due to my wife's school calendar we need to travel over Easter. Is there one city that would be preferable to be in during Easter? Perhaps something special going on -- or the opposite, one being less crowded?

Also, is one better for Easter Monday?

Thanks!

Would see what has availability...bith are very popular cities over easter. Florence has the scoppio del carro - which is a big tradition on Easter Sunday. Venice doesn't have anything that matches. Both cities you will find quite busy however.

You have left it very late to consider booking a Hotel room in either Florence or Venice as an exceptionally busy time for both cities. For either city I like to book about 6 months ahead to make sure of obtaining the room I want in the Hotel I want.

Both cities are full of glorious things to see and do and lovely places to eat and drink so hard to make a choice between these two which both demand lengthy stays to appreciate fully.

Ha. Well that isn't exactly a helpful answer Robert, unless you have access to a time machine.

Since you have left it until late, I would use Venere or Booking.com to check both cities for the Easter period, as you may find your choice is already mostly made for you based on your dates and budget. I would think Florence a little easier to find something, but you really can't tell until you start plugging in the exact dates you plan to spend there.
