Italy isn’t a very big country, but the weather in this region vary quite dramatically throughout the year. And with the mountain ranges and long coastlines, the temperature can also change dramatically as you go from town to town.
Winters are cold and long in the northern alps; the summers can be stormy with frequent rain. The far south is often lashed by the sirocco – the humid and hot African wind which brings weeks of stifling heat to the south of Rome, is usually warm. Spring and autumn can be the best times to travell in Italy due to pleasant temperatures, even though the vast majority of visitors still go in the summer.
