The gelato, the architecture, the artwork dripping in history…these are just a few of the reasons travellers flock to Italy like red sauce to bowtie pasta. Whether you spend long days in Venice meandering through narrow alleyways and hopping on the occasional gondola, or eat your way through every Colosseum-adjacent restaurant in Rome, you’ll never regret your escape to Italia. Best of all, you can score cheap flights to Italy that leave a healthy wine budget within your reach—even when you book at the last minute.
Determining the best time to visit Italy will depend largely on the climate you most enjoy and how tolerant you are of large crowds. During late spring (April to early June) and early fall (September to October), you will find a temperate climate and fewer people. During these months, you can enjoy the cultural hot spots of major cities as well as the rich tapestry of colours that overtake the Italian countryside as seasons change. If you travel from Sydney to Rome during the summer, prepare to encounter tank top weather; make sure you stay very hydrated as you make your way to Vatican City and Trevi Fountain. If you want to hit the slopes, go to Northern Italy in the winter. You won’t even notice the below freezing temperatures while flying down the Italian Alps.
