WHEN TO GO TO CENTRAL ITALY ?
While Italy is amazing throughout the year, we need to keep in mind that the central and southern portions can be dry during the height of summer. Our Central Italy hoteliers recommend visiting between April and May or from Late September through until early November. The temperatures are still quite pleasant, and the crowds will be thinner when compared to the height of the tourist season. This is particularly the case when planning to visit large cities such as Rome.
Let's finish by taking a look at some of the top restaurants suggested by our hoteliers.
