Best Time to Visit Italy for Smaller Crowds

December to February

Most visitors to Italy travel during the high season in search of a sunny Mediterranean vacation. If you're looking for a more peaceful time to visit, head to Italy during winter, when the crowds in major cities thin out. You'll have plenty of room to explore at your leisure.

Best Time to Visit Italy for Low Prices

October to April

The best time to score a deal on your trip to Italy is during the off-season from October to April. With fewer visitors in popular cities like Rome, Venice, and Florence, the costs of airfare and accommodations decline. If your heart's set on high season, opt for hidden gems like Puglia and Umbria, where you can enjoy a more affordable vacation.
