Weather to go

For a relatively small country, the weather differs significantly between northern and southern Italy. The north of Italy is flanked by the Alps and the Apennines, generating a harsh climate with brutally cold winters and hot, humid, summers.  The middle part of the country has a mild climate with little change seen between winters and summers, while the south of Italy and the islands winters are hardly noticeable.  Due to these differences the best time to visit depends on what region you are visiting, but the high seasons are May through early July and September & October.
