June, September, or October for Venice, Florence, Rome?

Jump to last reply

Hello Fodorites! My mother and I are planning a trip to Italy, and I am having trouble figuring out when would be the best time to go. Our only options are early June, the very beginning of September, and early to mid October. This will be my mom's first trip to Europe, and she does want warm weather, but I'm concerned about humidity. I'm trying to balance the pros and cons of intense crowds, intense heat/humidity, and unpredictable cool/rainy spells. I would really appreciate your thoughts. Again, we're hitting up Venice, Florence and Rome, and this is part of a group tour, if that makes a difference.

I have checked weather sites for averages, but personal experience is often more helpful. Many thanks!
