hi

we will be spending from the 19th August until the end of October in Italy.
I know it will be hot and Summer for some of it so I am asking for advice as I have not been to Italy for 10 years.
Where would you go in the hot section of our trip? And any other information or suggestion would be very welcome!

Thanks

PS: would you spend a month in Florence with a 3 and 6 yo?

PPS: we will hire a car when we are out of the cities.

Hi!

We just spent a few weeks in Italy in October. So the hot part I'm not so sure about - I've been to Italy 3 times now and always in shoulder season...

I would be thinking somewhere on the coast though - perhaps if you started up north and ended up down south so when the warmer weather starts fading you'll be chasing the sun??

I personally would struggle with a month in Florence, regardless of the kids ages....Have you been to Florence before??

For this trip, we loved Turin. But stayed in a place near Asti. I think it could be a stifling when its hot there though, for Autumn it was stunning. We also stayed in a place called Borla which is kinda near parma. Think rolling hills filled with vineyards and castles everywhere you turn. With the bonus of not being completely over-run with tourists like Florence/Tuscany. Of course we were tourists and there is definately tourism there - it is far too beautiful for there not to be. But nowhere near the scale in Florence and surrounds....

The other spots that spring to mind is Sicily - you could always do a weekend trip to Malta on the ferry...You could go via Naples (totally mad but very alive city from memory). Tacking on a trip to Pompeii and Isle of Capri easily done as day trips (from naples)....

Very jealous of your trip original.gif
