As a tourist, you may find something or other to keep yourself entertained all throughout the year, thanks to Italy’s amiable climate. But, before planning for your great Italian vacation, it would be wise to consider a few factors such as weather, cultural events, seasonal atmosphere, ambiance and your budget. Italy experiencesa Mediterranean climate characterised bycool, rainy winters and hot, dry summers. Summer temperature lies somewhere in between 30 to 32 degree Celsius while some coastal areas of Southern Italy see freezing winters.
The best months to visit Italy are the months of April to June and mid-September to October—temperature is amiable and the place sees less crowds then. The months fromJuly through early September are the peak tourists’ season. Italy is a tourist’s favourite country and sees a good number of tourists, especially at iconic spots like Pantheon, Colosseum, and Florence Cathedral etc. which can be crowded in summer, ruining your once-in-a-lifetime experience. Also, the prices and temperatures are at an all-time high during the summers.
Italy is also renowned in the world for its delectable cuisine, so if you are a foodie in the truest sense, you may want to plan your Italian holiday during spring, when the markets are filled with fresh, local produce, or fall, when the grape harvest is celebrated throughout the countryside. Scout for best air fares during the months of mid-September to March, which increases around Christmas. It is also advised that you book your hotel well in advance so as to benefit out of early-bird rentals. Rates of villas, hotels, and apartmentsare lower in spring and fall - the supposed shoulder seasons, but the finest deals are in winter barring Christmas time.
You may pack t-shirts and cotton clothes for the summer, while warmer clothes are necessary during winter.
