Italy is a great place to visit all year round. From May through October, the country enjoys its warmest climate, which makes it a wonderful time to travel. In November and December you’ll be treated to views of Italy’s warmer weather as well as Christmas markets. The summer months can be hot, especially on the beaches of Puglia and Calabria so head inland if you want a cooler Italian holiday. Winter in Italy is also quite pleasant with rain showers starting in late October and lasting until April or early May depending on where you are located within the country.
