Venice/Florence?Rome in July/Aug

Jump to last reply

Hi Everyone,

I'll be in Europe late July early August for 10 - 14 days, some of which I'll be spending in Paris. I know August is not a great time to spend in Italy. I don't, unfortunately, have other travel date options. Is there any way to blunt the impact of the heat and crowds, such as hotels that will keep me away from most of the crowds, best times to see the Uffizi/Accademia/Sistine Chapel? I'm an early morning person and am happy to be up at, even before, dawn, if that helps.

I can navigate Paris well, but I'm not very experienced when it comes to Italy.

Any advice, suggestions and recommendations will be greatly appreciated.

Cheers!
