Italy is comes with various climates depending on your location (northern and southern). Major differences in climate are recorded most especially during the winter season. For example, places in the Alps area will have 10 degrees Fahrenheit (-12 C), while the people in Milan will experience 33 degrees Fahrenheit (1 C).


Moreover, there is less of a difference during the summer. If you are looking to visit Italy and stay in some of their largest cities in the coastal region, expect that you will have hot and dry summer, and not too much of the winter season.

The western side of the country on the other hand will have enough rain showers. The eastern part can also be chilly because of the bora wind that is coming from the central part of Europe.

In general, the climate in Italy is said to be unpredictable. It can change and vary year per year. In fact, Italy can show sunny days and warmer weathers even during the supposed winter season.

The months of July and August may not be the best time to visit Italy, particularly the southern part. This is because you might not be able to tolerate the heat that can last until September. You might not enjoy strolling and exploring the beauty and landscapes of the city since it will be very uncomfortable for you to walk on summer’s heat. Nevertheless, the best time to visit Italy is during the months of April, May, and October, where the climate of the country in most locations is highly bearable by tourist.
