When to Go

Any time spent vacationing in Italy is a perfect time. The summer is hot, especially in the south. Many Europeans go on holiday during August for a reason. The best weather arrives during late spring, early summer and fall, although wintertime can also be magical.

Fast Facts

One of Italy’s appropriate nicknames is 'Bel Paese,' beautiful country.

Food and Italy go hand-in-hand (or hand-to-mouth). Italy introduced ice cream to the world (via the Chinese), along with coffee and fruit pies. Bartolomeo Sicci penned the first Italian cookbook in 1474.

Parmesan cheese originated near Parma, Italy. The popular slow food movement began in Italy in 1986 by Carlo Petrini and has since spread worldwide in an attempt to preserve traditional and regional cuisine.
