Italy weather

We are headed to northern Italy, Lake Como, Milan and Cinque Terre in mid September. What can we expect for weather? Trying to decide how many layers to pack.

I would be interested in this question too. We're going to Lake Como & Venice in late September/early Oct. Ive heard its light jacket weather, but more input would be welcome.

dowling - you are on the right track with layers.

it could be very hot, or middling, or cool.

i would suggest sleeveless t-shirts or similar as a base layer, light shirts [that you can wear over the base] as a 2nd layer, and the odd cardigan as a third. all three could come into play if it was not particularly hot.

a light jacket/waterproof would be a good idea too - it could act to keep you warm on cooler evenings, even if it didn't rain.

have a great trip!

Here is Milan. I would expect nice weather---highs about 75 lows about 55---warmer at the CT.

I'm just organizing my wardrobe for Sept 8-Oct 6, Rome/Umbria/ CT/Bellagio. Layers is the way to go. I'm also taking a denim jacket as it was invaluable last Fall in SW France. Everything fits into a carryon.

You may need to wear the heaviest pieces on the plane, but usually that works fine.
