During Spring and Autumn Italy is at its best, the scenery is wonderful with the vineyards and olive groves in full growth, the temperatures are mild and the number of visitors are less. August is the month that many Italians take their holidays, and this can cause certain shops to close. Italy is blessed with a temperate climate but the weather can vary depending on your location from the sea or the mountains. The summer months are hot and dry, but if you are on the coast you have the cooling sea breezes. In winter the mountain areas provide ideal skiing climate, or during the warmer months it provides magnificent scenic drives or walks.
