Northern Italy is a top tourist destination seeing thousands of visitors a year. The area is composed of eight regions: Aosta Valley, Emilia-Romagna, Friuli-Venezia Guilia, Liguria, Lombardy, Piedmont,Trentino-Alto Adige, and Veneto. You can’t miss out on whateach region has to offer — but when is the best time to go on a tour of Northern Italy?

Making the most of your tours of Northern Italy

Choosing the best time to travel is the key to enjoying your vacation. This is because peak times can make the trip more uncomfortable, filled with thousands of tourists and leading to expensive hotels, traffic, and crowded attractions.

When visiting Northern Italy, you must first determine what you want to do. For example, here are a few ideas you can add to your itinerary:


Italy boasts over 50 UNESCO World Heritage Sites — the highest number among all countries. Moreover, several are located, in Northern Italy, such as Le StradeNuove in Genoa, Mantua and Sabbioneta by the Po River,Crespid’Adda in Lombardy, and Santa Maria delleGrazie in Milan.

It would be a waste not to visit these legendary destinations in Northern Italy, and spring is the best time to go sightseeing. The Italian spring runs from March to May, characterized by pleasant weather with occasional bouts of rain. In addition, prices are generally lower than in the summer.

Eating and drinking

Of course, there’s no one right time to indulge in your favorite foods and drinks. But, when you’re in Italy,you should appreciate each meal to the fullest — and visiting during the fall is the best way to do so.

Fall in Northern Italy is cold and comfortable, and there are typically fewer visitors and lower airfare prices. But perhaps the best thing about September is that it’s harvesting season, and you can indulge in the country’s most renowned glasses of wine.

In addition, September is also the perfect time to search for truffles. A quick trip to Piedmont can give you a hands-on experience of white truffle hunting in the deep woods.


Did you know that Northern Italy is also a top destination for avid skiers? The mountainous region features numerous luxurious ski resorts, such as Val Gardena in South Tyrol and Madonna di Campiglio near the Dolomites.

And naturally, the best time to visit would be in the winter. February and March see the best snowfalls, but you can also spend Christmas and New Year in the Italian Alps.

Don’t forget to book a tour of Northern Italy with a licensed and experienced tour operator, so you enjoy your holiday to the fullest!
