Most tourists visit Italy only during Spring and Summer. It’s because they think this is when Italy is at its best. Beautiful, hot and they can enjoy lots of outdoor activities. However, don’t think that Italy is boring during Winter. There are lots of interesting things to do, and the white mountains are beautiful. If you never have considered visiting Italy during winter, then these reasons should convince you otherwise.
Enjoy the mountains in a completely different way
During the summer, you can just view the mountains from a distance and enjoy the beauty of the scenery. Seeing the sunrise and sunset over the mountains each day, perhaps going on a hike if you’re an outdoors activities type.
However, when winter comes, you can enjoy the mountains in a completely different way. You can go up and go skiing. One of the most popular winter activities in some parts of Italy. And, this is something that you will only be able to experience during the cold, winter months.
Italy is cheaper during the winter because of fewer tourists
It is known that Italy is one of the more expensive countries for tourists to visit. This is because Italy is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world. The different tourist attractions, the food, the friendly locals and the beautiful country are all the reasons why this country is expensive.
When winter comes, and tourists are going home, prices start dropping. Everything gets cheaper and a little more accessible. You will find specially priced accommodation; restaurants are cheaper and even some attraction fees are lower. Making it more affordable to visit Italy during the winter.
Christmas markets are something you will remember always
The highlight each year for most locals are the Christmas markets that you can visit. Buying presents for your family and friends. Christmas markets are the place where you can find both unique, artisanal items and gourmet local delicacies and food products.
This is something that you will only find during the wintertime in Italy. Something that every other tourist is missing out on if they are visiting Italy during summer. There are different Christmas markets all over Italy over Christmas, and you will never get bored by visiting them all.
Hot comfort food at its best
What is better than sitting in a warm, cosy Italian restaurant after a cold day of visiting attractions? Eating some delicious, warm comfort food. A warm pizza, a soup or even a plate of warm pasta.
This is the best part of visiting Italy during winter. Enjoying the hot puddings, the hot drinks and hot meals that you will not be able to enjoy during the hot, summer days. Also, you know by know Italy is famous for its chocolates. What goes better than cold months and delicious handmade chocolates?
Winter in Italy. It can be just as great as visiting Italy during Spring and summer. The best part is that not many tourists are visiting Italy during the colder months. It might be colder, but the mountains are white with snow, and skiing becomes the number one sport. If you ever want to see Italy completely differently, then a Winter holiday in Italy is something to consider.
