    • Italy October 2015 – "Steve and Andrea Okopny and Joe and Judy Dawson traveled to Italy on October 2nd for two weeks. The first week we stayed at an all inclusive hotel in the town of Amalfi. We took day trips to Ravello, Positano, the Isle of Capri, Pogerllo and Amalfi. We then travelled to Manarola, a small town in the Cinque Terre National Park, ( a UNESCO world heritage sight). We had day trips from there to the five towns that make up the Cinque Terre, Corniglia, Montarosa La Mare, Vernaza, Riomagiorie and Manarola. After 3 nights in an apartment on the top floor of the highest building (no elevators!) we traveled to Florence where we took a tour to the cities of Sienna and Gimignano. Finally we traveled to Venice where we stayed the final two nights.
      All travel between cities was by high speed and local trains or by boat. We had great weather except for one day and had a great time." – Published on Oct 19, 2015 – by:Joe Dawson

    • Italy Weather and When to Go  – "In general the climate in Rome, and especially Florence and the Tuscan region is very mild. There are little differences between the regions, though. Rule of thumb: at the coast and in the valleys the summers are hotter than in the hilly areas, where the climate is very continental – rain falls are more often. Usually the summers in Tuscany are without rain and very hot, especially in the valleys. Spring (April and May) and autumn (October and November) might be rainy but there are still dry, sunny days. In the winter there are sunny, mild days but at night it sometimes gets very cold. July is the hottest month with temperatures from 73° up to 86°. Especially in the valleys the temperatures sometimes rise up high. In the coldest month – January - they are about 44° at the coast and about 38° to 42° inside the country. Of course the temperature in the mountainous areas is below." – "About Us" – Source: Found in the Italy Travel - Before You Go AKA Italy Travel Guide section on TripAdvisor

There is a long midseason in this country, and over the years I have learned what clothing is appropriate in October and November." – on Oct 12, 2011 – by: arttrav AKA Alexandra Korey – "About ArtTrav" – Source: ARTTRAV – "LIFE, ART & TRAVEL in ITALY"
