Winter In Italy

I would love to know if anyone has travelled through Italy in the winter months? ie. End of Dec-Jan
What is the weather like? is it too rainy? or are the days mild and you can do all the walking, eating and sightseeing

Enza, I can't answer your question, but it probably depends on where in Italy. Where were you thinking of going?

In Sicily the temperature is warm and rains very rarely.
In Milan, Venice, Bologna & so on it's cold and rains a lot.
We live in Sicily & we run
self-catering accommodations.
Best regards.

San Remo and surrounding area CAN be gorgeous that time of year. It is one of the places that is protected from much of the rain by the mountains inland. We enjoyed gorgeous sunny days there in the 60's last Dec. and Jan.

We went to Sicily a few years ago, and it was constant rain, day and night for days. It was supposed to be the wettest winter in decades, but it really ruined things because so much of that area is outdoor stuff. We ended up going to Rome where there is more to do inside.

Generally, for winters, I personally like cities because you aren't so dependent on weather. If there are inside things to do, you can't go wrong, and driving in the country side areas (anywhere, including US) losses a lot in lousy weaather
