which is worse in july - rome or venice?

Jump to last reply

hi there,

my husband & i are heading to italy june 21 - july 5. I know it's a bad time to go but it was the only time my husband could get away and we've been dreaming of italy for years.

so, i'm trying to figure out which route is going to be the least painful, both weather-wise and crowds-wise. these are the options, would love your opinions!

Start in Venice, end in Rome (Florence in between) -
would mean a bit nicer weather (hopefully) still in Venice, not quite hot and sticky as later...but then end in Rome in the July heat and crowds.

Start in Rome, end in Venice (Florence in between) -
would mean hopefully avoiding the worst of the Roman heat and the summer crowds, but then end up hot & sticky and moqsuito-y in Venice.

Maybe i'm over-thinking this? Advice please!

Thanks,
:-)
Karen
