There will be less people in major cities such as Florence, Milan, and Venice, as much of the locals would have gone on holiday, so these are the best places to visit if you want some peace and quiet. You should avoid the sweltering mid-day heat of August in Italy and relish instead in the night-time entertainment, such as dance, music, and theatre. In the big cities, prices are also slightly lower relative to the past three months, and the traffic is much better." – "About" – Source: VAMORO – "where & when to travel"
