– Travellers and Tourists Flock to Milan for All Saints' Day in November 2011

Published: Tue Oct 11 2011

All Saints' Day is one of the most celebrated days in the Catholic calendar and as such major destinations in Italy typically enjoy an influx of visitors around the festival. The festival takes place on November 1st and has prompted online hotel room comparison website to advise early booking of Milan city centre hotels for those who want to stay somewhere central.

The Catholic festival of All Saints' Day celebrates all the figures from the Catholic faith who have achieved beatification in Heaven. While most people will usually spend a large proportion of the day in church, it is worth remembering that many public amenities and shops remain closed throughout the day.

Milan's hotels will likely be busy the following day too when Catholics celebrate the festival of All Souls' Day. November 2nd sees worshippers heading to local graveyards and cemeteries to honour and give thanks to departed relatives and ancestors.

Lek Boonlert, marketing head of hotel room website, says, "Milan enjoys a thriving tourist trade throughout most of the year and around the major Catholic religious festivals the city is usually busier than ever. With that in mind people who want to stay overnight in a hotel in the city centre really do need to book ahead to avoid disappointment."
