Step 1
Summer attracts large numbers of tourists in Italy, and the prices go up accordingly. Travel to Italy during the low season between November and March if possible. Airfare and hotel rates are usually much more reasonable.
Step 2
The average temperatures in November vary throughout Italy. On average, the temperature reaches highs around 60 degrees Fahrenheit and drops to near 40 degrees in the evening. There is usually perfect hiking weather in the mountains of northern Italy in November. However, hikers should check in advance to plan around heavy rain storms that occasionally strike. Venice is often humid in the summer months, but it cools off nicely here in November. Expect light drizzle farther south in the cities of Florence and Rome. The temperatures go up slightly as you continue south to Naples and the Amalfi Coast.
Step 3
Outdoor enthusiasts enjoy hiking the scenic Dolomites, one of the lesser known mountain ranges in Europe. Located near Venice in the northeastern region of Italy, the Dolomites are limestone mountains that reach up to 10,000 feet in altitude. The Dolomites may be slightly smaller than the nearby Alps, but rolling meadows and rugged trails are definitely still worth a visit. Rock climbers will find sheer rock walls to climb, and hikers can enjoy a large network of well-designed foot trails. Stop for a rest at the numerous rifugios throughout the Dolomites. Rifugios are little mountain huts that offer basic overnight lodging for hikers. You can explore the region for days or weeks at a time, stopping in for food and shelter at low-priced rifugios.
