Best month to visit Italy

September is still a part of the tourist season in Italy, actually it is high season in Tuscany for example. In September the locals come back from the annual August holiday season so traffic in large towns is back to the usual levels. The weather gets a little cooler but the climate is still warm. There are still some food festivals and small art and music festivals all over the country during the month but not as frequent as in the summer. Visitors would generally find the rates a little lower than the preceding months so it would be a better month to travel for the budget conscious.

 

Weather in September

September is a great month to visit Italy due to the weather. In September, the temperatures begin to drop all over the country. Also, the weather in most parts of the country is usually dry, which is an added advantage. September is a great month for outdoor activities in Italy since the temperatures are not too high but not cold and the seaside resorts are less crowded as the locals head back to their respective towns for the re-opening of the schools after their August vacations. Autumn begins in Italy officially on September 23. September is also the month of various interesting festivals all across the country including the very well known Regatta in the Grand Canal of Venice.

 

Northern Italy is comparatively much cooler in September than in August. In Milan and other parts of Northern Italy, the average temperature would remain between 12 to 24 degrees Celsius (54 to 75 degree Fahrenheit). In September, there might be occasional rainy days in Northern Italy where the temperatures might drop down by a fraction.

 

In Central Italy including cities like Rome the temperature climbs down by a notch. Average temperature is approximately between 17 to 26 degrees Celsius (62 to 79 degree Fahrenheit). In September, there are occasional rainy days so it is best to stay prepared and carry an umbrella in your luggage.

 

In Southern Italy and the seaside resorts, including Sicily, the temperatures begin to climb down but only by a small degree. In September, the temperatures remain between 22 to 27 degrees Celsius (72 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit). The climate is usually dry in Southern Italy in September and rainfall is quite uncommon.

Precipitation in September can be occasionally seen in Central as well as in Northern Italy.

 

Where to Visit in September

 

In September, the locals would return back to their homes and work after their annual holidays in August so most places would have lesser crowds. Visitors can visit the beaches on the southern coast of Italy in September since it would still be warm in that area but not overly hot and the crowds would have already disappeared in September. Another great option is to visit for example the Roman ruins like "Il foro Romano" in Rome or Ostian Antica near Rome too hot to be enjoyed during the Summer months.
