Italy in March?

Jump to last reply

First time posting here, I've been trying to read up beforehand.

My husband is treating me to a trip to Italy for my (gasp) 50th birthday next year. He doesn't have much desire to go, but knows it's always been a dream of mine and this trip was his suggestion. He is excited to take me somewhere I've always dreamed of going.

Being a teacher, the times I can visit are pretty much limited to Christmas, Easter, or Summer Vacation. Being that my family would kill us for missing Christmas at home, that leaves Easter or Summer.

My husband hates crowds and I hate the heat, so I'm very reluctant to go in the Summer. Leaving us with Easter.

This coming year I have vacation the week before Easter which is March 31st, so we'd be visiting in the last week of March. In 2014, Easter falls on April 20th, so we could go the third week of April.

Sorry for the long-windedness, but do you think I should wait an entire year to push the vacation back by 3 weeks? Being that my husband doesn't have a strong desire to go, I am pretty sure this will be my only visit to Italy and I don't want to waste it. I am going to try to see as much as I can in 10 days, and I want to enjoy every minute. I am so afraid that the weather will be too cold/unpredictable for us to truly enjoy ourselves. We plan on doing Venice, Florence, Rome, and Positano.

For anyone who has visited in the Spring, do you think the 3 week delay is worth putting off the vacation by a whole year? I am just SO looking forward to it that I am really loathe to put it off.

Thanks for any words of wisdom.
