September – November

Fall is a wonderful time to visit Italy, however it has become increasingly popular, so be aware that sometimes the high season stretches into October. Temperatures during these months are typically very comfortable, and you can hike through the lush, green meadows of the Italian Alps. The fall also brings food festivals galore, as well as the grape harvest in October and the olive harvest in November. While you won`t be able to take advantage of the lowest rates or the least crowds of the year, the shoulder season is an ideal time to visit.

The rainiest months pretty much everywhere are usually October and November.
