Our goals are to avoid crowds, stretch our dollars, and absolutely to enjoy this region. We're considering going first 2 wks of April and leaving Italy prior to Easter. Or arriving in region a few days after Easter. Final thought is to wait until first 2 wks of May, which will be right after the canonization ceremonies in Rome. [we do not plan to spend any time in Rome, but wonder if all of Italy will be bustling at that time] Would there be much difference in weather conditions if we wait until early May? Any thoughts/advice will be greatly appreciated.
