When is the best time to visit Italy?

The best time to visit Italy is during the quieter part of the season, from April to June and from September to October when the weather is mild, prices are a bit lower (often called the midseason) and there are “fewer” tourists to crowd the main sights.

July and August are the hottest months when temperatures hit the high 80s and into the 90s over the last few years. They are perfect to visit the coastal area or relax at your country estate by the pool.

There are many events all year round throughout Tuscany and Italy. Annual festivals and cultural events providing a range of experiences for every visitor. Many ”sagre”, or festivals dedicated around a particular local product, start in early summer and continue on through the fall as local specialties (truffles, wine, olive oil, marroni chestnuts) come into season.

In April and October, you’ll generally need a sweater or light jacket in the evening. In winter the temperatures can drop to the 30s or 40s.
