When to book flights to Italy

The time you choose to visit Italy will depend on what you want to get out of your trip.

If you’re hoping to spend your holiday soaking up the sun on the Italian Riviera, then June, July and September are the best times to travel.

If you’re planning a skiing holiday in the Italian Alps or the Dolomites the winter will suit you perfectly.

Meanwhile, walking holidays and city breaks are probably best enjoyed during the spring or autumn months.

In August, most Italians leave the cities and head to the coast for a summer break. Beaches can become very crowded and many local bars and restaurants in Rome, Venice, Florence and other cities can be shut for some or all of the month. Consider booking your flights to Italy outside of this holiday period to make the most of your visit.
