In 2022, we spent a total of six weeks in this amazing country and spent the last two weeks with Bev’s mom and nephew, Bud, who visited us in Bologna and Venice. Exploring the narrow streets and canals to find our delicious evening pizza, pasta, and gelato was a daily activity! It’s a memory we will cherish forever!

When to go…
We have found with Italy weather that the shoulder seasons are a great time to visit. April-May and September-October have nice weather, that isn’t too hot and is less crowded than the summer months. There will be a higher chance of rainy weather as you move into October.
