Easter Eggs


Buona Pasqua to all our readers, from Stresa Sights



Sunday is Pasqua, Easter. The spring festival, in one of its many forms -- Easter, Pasqua, Pesach, etc. --, is one of the most universally celebrated holidays.  Here in Italy, every supermarket, every Autogrille, every Tabacchi shop is selling the traditional Italian Easter treats -- large hollow chocolate eggs that have a small surprise gift inside. Kinder is a well-known brand, and you can see that the gifts inside are little toys of famous characters from children's films and stories.

So if you're here in Stresa now or will be here for Easter, and want to bring back something truly beautiful and special, take a stroll over to Gigi Bar, facing the lake across from the station. That's where I found a beautiful collection of Easter gifts. Take a look also in Jolly Bar, as well as many of the pastry shops, for their own special Easter sweets and gifts.
