Italy has long been a popular destination for world travelers. The country offers fascinating history, gorgeous art, and delectable cuisine. However, many travelers are unsure when to book their trips. For travelers looking to make the most of their budget, airline fares are lowest between mid-September and March (with an increase around Christmas). Peak tourist season is from May through July, with higher hotel prices as well as longer lines at popular sites.

If weather is a concern, travelers should be aware that August tends to be the hottest month of the year, and many cities do not include air conditioning. The best months are from April to June and September to October, when there is little precipitation and comfortable daytime temperatures.
