Italy is one of the most popular vacation destinations in the world. With its rich history, breathtaking landscapes, remarkable cuisine, and delectable wines, it’s not hard to see why. Our tour operations team gets asked quite frequently – when is the best time to go to Italy?
In our opinion, the best time to go to Italy is in April, May, September, or October, during the shoulder seasons. We typically schedule our small group public tours during the shoulder seasons of the destinations we visit. We do this for several reasons – mostly due to weather, cost, and not wanting to have to share such fabulous locales with a lot of other tourists. Italy’s high season is considered to be June – July.
