Info about, for or on Italy in May

(LAST EDITED/UPDATED: 2 MAY 2016)

Here are some links about, for or on Italy in May:

ITALY IN MAY
  • Italy in May – "Going strictly by the calendar, May is part of the spring season and would under normal circumstances be considered part of Italy’s shoulder season. Italy is quite good at dismissing normal circumstances, however, and unfortunately May is often thought of as the start of the high season in Italy these days." – April 3rd, 2009 – by Jessica [Spiegel]  – "About whyGo" – Source: Italy section of whyGo, Part of the BootsnAll Travel Network – "ONE-STOP INDIE TRAVEL GUIDE EST. 1998
  • Spring Travel in Italy – "Why Visit Italy in Spring" – Updated March 18, 2015 – By Martha Bakerjian, Italy Travel Expert – Source: Found in the Italy Travel section on about.com
  • Traveling to Italy in May: What You Need to Know – "Once upon a time, the month of May was part of spring in Italy. The weather was usually good – so reliably good, in fact, that more people started flocking to Italy in May than they had in the past, which meant hoteliers and airlines started jacking up prices…And that brings us to the present, when May is firmly part of the high summer tourist season, no matter what season it’s technically in. This isn’t to say that going to Italy in May is a bad idea – far from it. There’s a reason May caught on. It’s warm, but it’s not usually too warm. It’s crowded, but it’s often not too crowded. It might just be the month equivalent of Goldilocks finding Baby Bear’s porridge. There are some drawbacks to a May trip, though, and some things to keep in mind as you plan your vacation.If you’re traveling to Italy in May, here’s what you need to know about weather and holidays." – blogger: Jessica Spiegal – Source: Italy Explained – "TRAVEL GUIDE | STORE | BLOG | ABOUT | MAIL

Moreover, there are dozens of festivals, feasts and events taking place in May in Italy, all of them a true delight to witness." – "Those who are willing to shell out a little more money, or can hike up their travel budget, should definitely consider visiting Italy in May to experience its many festivals. Everything in Italy is more costly, from airfares to hotels, so it is better to be prepared to spend a bit more if you decide to come this time of the year. Of course, it is superfluous to say, it is worth every penny. As we said, May is already considered high season and tourist spots and cities may be pretty crowded: keep this in mind if you are looking for a peaceful vacation, and choose smaller villages and towns." – Sun, 04/26/2015 - 00:00 – Submitted by ancos – Source:  lifeinitaly.com – "is a website that covers multiple aspects of Italian contemporary life and tourism." – "News | Travel | Food & Wines | Culture | Lifestyle | Fashion | Moving to Italy | Learn Italian | Home & Garden | Places

            • Top Ten Tips for Americans Traveling in Italy – "There is nothing worse than a cultural misunderstanding, especially if it has the potential to ruin a trip. I find these incidents especially painful in Italy simply because they can so easily be avoided if you’re properly prepared. Every time I happen to overhear an American traveler recounting some miscommunication, I make a mental note. There are, of course, your classic repeat offenders, but there are also some that stand out because they represent the points at which these two cultures differ. Hence, they are the same things that Italians misconstrue when they’re on American soil. So instead of letting another potential mix-up ruin even just one afternoon of someone’s long awaited adventure, I thought I’d jot down ten of the most common cultural disparities specifically for Americans traveling in Italy.
