Italian Lakes - October temperatures

Jump to last reply

Starting in UK in late August and working our way south to Nice then Venice in October.....hopefully temperatures will remain constant.....more or less.....but what about the Italian lakes in the second half of October? Cold? I notice the lake ferries will have switched to their winter timetables about 2 weeks before we get there!

    I was at Lakes Como and Maggiore the third week in October and it wasn't too cold but it rained lightly every other day. I packed thermal tights and gloves and wore them a couple of times but mostly for the dampness rather than cold.

    I still enjoyed my time there but would not go back at that time of year. I think earlier with nicer weather and flowers and more people would be better.

    I didn't have any problem with ferry connections; I'm not sure what the difference is between summer and winter hours.

    I did find that some restaurants were closed for the season (although there were plenty of places to eat). It does get dark early so the evenings seem long and there were few people walking around. Some of the cafes on the water front in Bellagio had propane heaters so people were sitting outside in the day but didn't see anyone sitting outside in the evenings.

    But I do remember one day that was sunny and warm and I didn't need a jacket to sit outside and enjoy lunch. So the weather could be anything but I still think this is a place for earlier in the season.

    Venice also can be cold in October, especially along the canals. Bring gloves, skarf, fleece.
