Weather in Italy

























The boot-shaped beauty that is Italy basks in a Mediterranean climate, which in layman's terms means - delizioso weather year-round! Summertime (June to August) sees temperatures shimmying up to a toasty 25-30°C. Just the right weather to enjoy a gelato or two...or three, who's counting?

But here's the fun part - autumn (September to November) and spring (March to May) in Italy are like the best-dressed guests at a party. The temperatures cool down to a pleasant 15-20°C. It's the perfect weather for truffle hunting in Umbria or vino tasting in Tuscany, don't you think?

Even in the chill of winter (December to February), the weather in Italy maintains a cool yet comfortable vibe with temperatures around 10-15°C. It's time to cosy up in a charming cafe with a cappuccino and a cannoli!
