Best time to Visit

Good time to visit

Average time to visit

Italy is an exciting place to visit at any time of the year, and most attractions are open all year round. The best time to visit is in May, early June, late September and October. Days during those months are usually warm, and quite long. July and August are hot and humid with many tourists. Since most Italians leave their hot cities in the summer, many restaurants are closed in the cities.

Winter can get cold, particularly January but it is quiet. Temperatures are more favourable in the spring and autumn months.
