When to visit Lombardy

Tucked into the northwest of Italy along the Swiss/Italian border, Lombardy is one of the most popular destinations in Italy, offering a wide variety of attractions and activities. Visitors can enjoy everything from hiking and water sports to skiing, wine tasting, shopping, exploring historical sights, and dining on Michelin-starred cuisine. The best time to visit Lombardy depends on your particular interests. Summer is the busiest and hottest time of the year, although it offers many lively festivals and the famous lakes will be ideal for escaping the heat with a refreshing swim.

If you want to avoid the biggest crowds and enjoy milder weather, consider the shoulder seasons of April and May or September and October. Winter is obviously the time to visit for a ski vacation, but for those who don’t mind bundling up, it’s ideal for a more budget-friendly trip in lower-elevation towns while avoiding the crowds.
