Oct. - Tuscany, Umbria, Cinque terre

Could someone please tell me if it starts to quiet down in Tuscany, Umbria, and Cinque Terre the first couple of weeks of Oct. Is that a good time to visit, or would Sept. be better?

Thanks in advance.

September is warmer (but not really hot, thus better in my opinion) and the days are longer, so to me it is the superior choice, though the laws of supply and demand have reduced the bargain that September used to be (or seemed to be). October starts to be better price-wise - - almost in direct proportion to the mean daily temperature and the length of the days.

Neither time is tourist free; both times are better than July and August (in my opinion) - - it may boil down to a cost/convenience question for you.

Best wishes,

Rex

Elsa, we went from Rome to Chianti and then to Venice and the Cinque Terre at the end of October last year and it was great. I think we escaped the big downpour but the weather was kind to us - like Indian Summer in the midwest of the old US of A. Crowds were not bad-we drove in Tuscany and it was great - then train to Venice and the Cinque Terre. Enjoy!!

Elsa, The first half of Oct. is my pick.
But, that area is very popular these days and you will still have too many tourists. It sounds like a fun trip.
