Where to Go in Italy in September?
Many people choose to visit Italy at the change of season. Autumn is a fantastic time to visit Italy as, although still pleasantly warm across the country, the milder weather makes exploring the historic cities a little less exhausting. Let Venice Events tell you more about where to go in Italy in September!
Many people choose to visit Italy at the change of season. Autumn is a fantastic time to visit Italy as, although still pleasantly warm across the country, the milder weather makes exploring the historic cities a little less exhausting.
Furthermore, with the summer crowds long gone and businesses (restaurants!) back up and running after the August holidays you can enjoy your time in Italy to the fullest!
Shakespeare was onto something when he set his most famous tragedy in Verona: few cities in the world are as romantic as this. The historical centre of the city is over 2,000 years old and comprises a fascinating urban structure including the Torre Dei Lamberti Tower. It is a Unesco World Heritage Site and along with the spectacular Verona Arena, is the main focus of our Verona Walking Tour.
Another reason to visit Verona is Amarone. You’ve probably drank the Italian red, why not explore where it comes from? Just a short distance from Verona are the hills of Valpolicella where you can learn about the region’s long history of winemaking whilst sampling a few also. Our Amarone Bike Tour is very popular, but the Amarone Vespa Tour will let you see the city on the iconic Vespa scooter!

With so much to see in Rome, exploring the metropolis can be pretty taxing in the summer heat. In September however the temperature generally fluctuates between highs of 25 degrees and lows of 19 degrees.
If you prefer to enjoy sightseeing at a slower pace, free from the droves of other tourists, take the chance to explore three of Ancient Rome’s foremost symbols; the Colosseum, Palatine Hill and the Roman Forum on our tour of Imperial Rome.
Another reason to visit Rome in September is for the Taste of Roma food festival held at the Rome Auditorium. In 2017 it takes place from the 21st to the 24th of September, see the website for further information.
The Roman Forum is truly spectacular!
For countless artistic masterpieces set in some of the best art galleries in the world, head to Florence. The city that was once called ‘the cradle of the Italian Renaissance’ is best taken in from Piazzale Michelangelo from where you get a panoramic view of the city and surrounding hills that gave the world Donatello, Dante and Da Vinci.
You can see some of Michelangelo’s work in Rome or the Vatican City but if you really want to dive into the great man’s work and life you must visit Florence. Hours can be spent in the Accademia Gallery or the Uffizi Gallery and we highly recommend visiting both in September.

Our final city on the list is La Serenissima, because although it may not feel like the crowds have abated in September, there are certainly fewer day-trippers in Venice throughout the month.
So, there are less day-trippers in September plus there are a number of events happening in Venice over the course of September 2017; the Regata Storica, the Biennale which runs from June through to November and, of course, the film festival. You won’t be found wanting as there are plenty of things to do in Venice in September - your biggest issue might be finding accommodation!
