Best Time To Visit Italy

Plan your trip during best season to experience the best of this stunning destination

The best time for a trip to Italy is spring (April-May) and fall (September-October). Italy has a varied geography ranging from north to south. Summer is the best time to travel to Italy, especially the sun-soaked Mediterranean coast. On the other hand, the best time to visit Rome is the winter season when the tourists are fewer and hotel rates are lower. Due to its location along the Mediterranean and Adriatic seas, southern Italy has a sunny and pleasant climate throughout the year. Up north, where the Alps are, snowfall is common. To find the best season to visit Italy, travelers should weigh considerations such as weather, budget, cultural events, seasonal atmosphere, and ambiance.

The Tuscan hills, Venice canals, and beaches of Naples are best visited in the summer season when the temperatures are higher. The best time to visit Italy for honeymoon is either in spring or autumn to explore the small towns and countryside. In the cities, the middle seasons the queues outside museums and landmarks are smaller.

The best months to go to Italy are April, May, September, and October, with ideal weather and moderate crowds. Keep on reading our season-wise travel guide to figure out the best time to Italy:

Climate in Italy

Summer Season in Italy

It’s usually warm all over Italy in summer. South of Florence, the weather in Italy is usually dry in summer. Inland and landlocked regions such as Tuscany and Veneto can be unpleasant to visit during a hot spell. The day temperatures in Italy begin to increase from May and lasting until mid-October. Italy in May is plenty busy with the tourist season just around the corner. It gets pretty crowded during June and July. So summer may not be the best time to visit Italy for holiday. August is the hottest month in the country, especially Naples and the Mediterranean coast. Not to mention, it is also very crowded as the locals are out on holidays throughout the month as well. Hotel prices and day temperatures also peak in the summer, especially July and August.

However, there is an upside to visit Italy in summer season, the days are longer so most of the attractions like museums and cathedrals remain open for longer hours than in winter. Also, the entire country seems to be celebrating holidays and so plenty of opportunities to mingle with the locals and get a taste of nightlife in Italy.

Monsoon Season in Italy

The rainiest months almost everywhere in Italy are usually October and November. While some areas in central Italy like Milan and Venice witness rainfall pretty much throughout the year, cities in southern Italy like Rome and Naples experience rainfall mostly during the winter season. Northern Italy, especially the higher Alps and Alpine foothills, witness snowfall from December to February. Winters in the north are cold with occasional rain and snow. In Rome, Tuscany, and Sicily the weather is warm almost all year.

Winter Season in Italy

Italy experiences fairly mild winters compared to other countries in Europe. All things considered, the ideal time to visit Italy is the winter season, from November through February. For those looking to come to Italy to celebrate Christmas or New Years’ Eve should make flights and hotel reservations as early as possible to avail discounts. The best time to visit Italy for honeymoon is winter as it is considered an off-season in Italy in terms of hotel prices and tourist crowds. The average temperatures in Central and Southern Italy in December hover between 10 to 15 degrees. A winter visit to Rome or Florence can tempt tourists to spend more time in a trattoria than in cafes and to top it all off, tourists in Florence may have the ‘David’ all to themselves.

November through March, many tourist attractions in Italy operate on shorter hours as the days are shorter too. Po and Adige valleys in Northern Italy and some lower regions in Central and Southern Italy witness moderately cold winters. Also, the precipitation is higher in winter months so is no specific dry season. The weather in peninsular coastal areas is different from upper and interior valleys, particularly in winter. When the higher altitudes witness snow and biting cold, coastal regions have milder temperatures and are generally dry. The average winter temperature in the Alps is around 0 degree Celsius whereas, the average temperature in Sicily hovers around 20 °C.

    Bharat Khemani

    Mumbai

    Bharat's 8 days trip to Italy

    Trip was nothing short of dream come true. Really had great fun and was able to manage everything on the trip because of the Itenary shared. One suggestion was please give help to solo traveller going abroad first time to keep cash in currency of the place they are travelling because its must requir
    ed. Another important thing would be to help people who are pure vegetarians to find indian restaurants which will really help them to have proper food because in italy its pure non vegetarian food. I would suggest to take food packets from india and also research the place of travel before going so that you already have a brief knowledge of the locations of travel. In locals in italy during night hours request to travel via taxi would be a suggestion by me to avoid any problems.

    Gaurav's 7 days trip to Italy

    Thank you @ Mr Rajat from hubholiday. Our trip to Italy was planned very nicely and with comfort as well. Hotels he selected were near to each and every station. Itenary was planned in a manner where we had time to rest at night but covered all iconic spots of the city. Mr Rajat was very helpful in
    timely informing about the corona issue, which was very important for me and my family to know about this outbreak of news. I would recommend from my personnel experience Mr Rajat from HubHoliday to plan tour and holidays.

    Lokesh's 8 days trip to Italy

    Overall the trip was well managed and assisted by the team. Hotels in paris and venice were good but naples one was okay(not recommended).Proximity wise paris and venice hotels were far from the city whereas naples one was close. The sightseeing tours, intercity travels and airport transfer were ver
    y well managed. Overall i am satisfied with the experience. Some things might have been better. Ritoparno and arindam from duniyasafari and surabhi from traveltriangle were always available and prompt to respond. Thanks a lot duniyasafari and traveltriangle for managing it well.

    Vishal has been a great friend all the way to the end. I had to plan my trip without the internet and he was right there with all the info to make the right picks regarding the locales, hotels and must visits in every city. Vishal accommodated in the best of hotels and his effort was visible. He'
    s a gem of a guy, while in Italy we called him at odd hours IST and he was always up and about helping with our itenary options. Travel Triangle app and Holiday Hub experience was converted by Vishal into a memorable vacation.
