Italy

Europe's masterpiece

When to visit Italy

Introduction

Generally speaking, the best time to visit Italy is between April and June or September and October. These shoulder seasons avoid the crowds along with the worst of the heat – Sicily has been known to reach the mid forties. In fact, given its favourable latitude, you can expect favourable temperatures year round with southern waters warm enough to swim even outside the May to September period. That said, winter will see snowfall in the north, with ski resorts opening up.

Most visitors to Venice will encounter rain at some point, though the famous acqua alta (high water) floods tend to occur in the months of November and December. The summer months see a sharp spike in temperature, as well as tourist crowds, so we recommend that for many the best time to visit Venice will be in the spring or autumn. Winter travellers may encounter snow, but it rarely lingers on the ground for longer than a few hours.
