Italy is usually visited for its incredible art cities its beautiful countryside and its marvellous coasts. How to choose your destination and your period?
If you come to Italy for the first time and if you like History and/or art you can’t miss the art cities. If you have time, we advise you to do an accessible tour of Italy including the Eternal Rome, Florence and Venice. If your stay is shorter, better to choose one or 2 of those cities. The access between them is good by road or by accessible train but do not forget that they are not so close!
If you wish to visit these cities, you must take in consideration that high season is during the autumn and spring.
For the nature, tradition & gastronomy lovers, I would prefer advise a stay in an agritourism or villa in the famous Tuscany, the Lakes and the islands. High season is in summer in these areas.
Italy is at its best in spring (April-May) and autumn (October-November). During these seasons, the scenery is beautiful, the temperatures are pleasant and there are relatively few crowds.
If you wish to discover the South of Italy, take care of booking really in advance your holidays. High season is summer and the prices of the accommodations are more expensive than in North of Italy.
