Italy is a beautiful destination that can be visited year-round, offering flexibility when planning your vacation. However, it is generally recommended to avoid the high summer months of June, July, and August at Italy’s most popular destinations due to the heat and crowds.
The Dolomites are a great vacation spot in Italy that can be visited year-round. In the winter, you can enjoy top-notch skiing, while in the spring and summer, you can experience amazing hiking.
If you plan to visit major cities like Rome and Florence, the fall and spring seasons are fantastic times to visit, and even early winter offers mild temperatures. On the other hand, the lake and coastal regions such as the Amalfi Coast, Capri, Puglia, and Lake Como have their summer season from April/May to October. The best months to visit these coastal regions are May, September, and October. “Shoulder season” traveling to Italy is highly recommended.
