Peak season

Every year millions of tourists take cheap flights to Italy to experience the good life, or as the Italians call it ‘la dolce vita’. Italy is a cultural mecca with a history that stretches back to the Roman Empire. Architecture, art, ancient history, wineries, beautiful beaches and of course delicious food (risotto, prosciutto, pizza, tiramisu) and designer shopping (Gucci, Dolce & Gabbana, Prada) can all be found in Italy. Between June and September is high season in Italy’s beach resorts, and in the cities peak season runs from April to October. If you’re deadset on visiting Italy in peak season, then be prepared to pay higher prices for flight tickets, hotels and attractions and to queue for sights such as Florence’s Uffizi Gallery and Rome’s Vatican Museum. August is a peak travel time for Italians to take their holidays, so expect a mass exodus from the cities and the beaches to be elbow room only. Christmas and New Year’s are also busy periods for locals to travel and Venice is chockablock with tourists during Carnival in February.

Off season

Italy’s low season is generally between November and mid-December, from January through to March. From late October to Easter, many attractions operate on shorter winter hours and beach resorts become deserted. The advantage of low season travel is that this period offers the cheapest flights to Italy, just keep your fingers crossed for the weather. It may be cold and raining or quite pleasant and dry. If you want mild weather then aim for the deep south, somewhere like Sicily which doesn’t drop much below 10C.
