When to go 

From April – early June and September – October you will enjoy warm weather and fewer crowds than the height of summer. Mid June – August the temps, crowds and prices are high making it uncomfortable. Beware of August as Italians get time off and many places are shut down as they head to the beaches or the mountains.
