Best time to visit

If you’re after that Euro summer with endless tanning, travelling to Italy during June - August (summer) is ideal. Wildflowers, strawberries and grapes are in bloom during the months of April - May (spring), making it a good time to visit to catch the heat, colours and peak of cuisine.

 

Food, wine and cultural festivals kick off during September - November (autumn) and is the perfect time to experience a true Italian experience.
