Italy in the winter time

Jump to last reply

Hello again.
Because my wife and I have been fortunate enough to have visited Europe twice over the past two years, our daughter has asked our advice for her upcoming trip.
Only problem is that, being a school teacher in Australia, the only time she is able to travel for any length of time is during January. Our travels have always been through May and June.

Could we please get some help from your knowledgeable fodorites regarding travelling through Italy in January?

My D (22) and her partner (25) plan to travel to Venice, Florence, Sorrento and Rome.

We need advice on what type of weather to expect (snow, rain - any clear days), and what attractions might then be closed - David, Sistine Chapel, Pompeii ruins, Capri etc.

Also, what can they expect as far as walking around Venice, St Mark's Square, taking a gondola on the canals etc.

Any is it likely to be more or less difficult to find accommodation?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance and regards, Steve
