Italy Holidays

Choosing the best time to holiday or backpack Italy will depend heavily on what you’re hoping to see and do in Italy, your budget, and when you’re able to travel. Italy’s busiest season is the high summer, from May to August. August is a holiday month in Italy when locals and tourists flock to the beaches to make the most of the very hot weather. This leaves the cities almost entirely deserted by locals, meaning it’s just the tourists left to enjoy the sights. It also means that some shops and businesses will be closed altogether as the owners head off to the coast with everyone else for their summer holidays. 

Sightseeing between June and August will most likely involve larger crowds of tourists shouldering each other in the heat at major attractions. Along with the Christmas and Easter holiday periods, this is the most expensive time to visit. If you’re looking to pick up an epic bargain, then the winter months are highly recommended. Most flights and accommodation options will be slightly cheaper at this time, except, of course, the ski resorts in the north that amp up their pricing. 

If you’re hoping to visit the many museums and galleries without the jostling crowds, then the winter months between November and March are preferable. However, it does mean you’ll need to brave the rain and cold, and sometimes even snow. Beach locations and seaside towns all but shut down over the winter months. The southern regions of Italy generally experience much warmer temperatures. Winters are milder and less gloomy and the summers much hotter and drier. 

The in-between seasons of spring and autumn bring slightly unpredictable weather but fewer crowds and sometimes good deals on accommodation. This is arguably the best time to visit Italy, in terms of weather.

The spring season between March and May is a good time for food lovers wishing to attend many food-related festivals and celebrations. This is also a good time for hikers and outdoor enthusiasts to head out into the lush countryside to enjoy the mild weather. September and October can still be quite warm, especially in the southern regions, and offer much cheaper rates than the high season. It’s also the harvest season, so a good time for gastronomic tours and wine t
