Italy in November

For most travelers, envisioning a trip to Italy includes long summer days strolling through bustling strade with a refreshing gelato, cooling off with a dip in Lake Como and seeing the rolling Tuscan hills filled with greenery and sunshine. But, much like gelato, Italy can be enjoyed year-round. In November, museum lines are much shorter, flights are cheaper and tables at Italy’s best restaurants are easier to come by. While November is Italy’s rainiest month, don’t let that damper your enthusiasm. The seasonal delicacies, namely the late autumn truffle season, are sure to delight. And while the rolling green hills have gone, bursts of new colors, yellow, orange and red, dot the landscape. So, skip the tan and dive right into fall in Italy.
