Travel to Italy in April, May, June, September, or October.
If I had to choose just one month as the ultimate time to visit Italy, I’d recommend October– hands down. (That’s why I picked October for the first A Wanderlust for Life Fall in (love with) Tuscany tour!) July and August are busy and warm (with limited air conditioning) and winter weather is unpredictable. Spring and fall promise fewer crowds, pleasant weather, and stunning scenery without sweating to see it!
Since my husband’s family is from Italy, a love for this country is in the DNA! While popular tourist attractions (like the Colosseum in Rome, canals in Venice, and David in Florence) are beloved for a reason, I recommend getting out of the big cities for a local and authentic Italian experience. Go truffle hunting in Tuscany, try Coniglio all’ Ischitana on the small island that invented the dish, rent a bike and search for the flamingos of Cagliari, and visit a menu-less cocktail bar in Sicily. One thing’s for certain– when you go off the beaten path in Italy, you’re guaranteed to eat well!
