Italy is not a huge country, but the weather from the top to the toe of this boot will vary pretty dramatically throughout the year. Plus, with the long coastlines and mountain ranges, the temperature can change in a matter of minutes as you go from town to town.

Here is some information about the average temperature in Italy for a few cities, with charts listing high and low average temperatures – in both Fahrenheit and Celsius – as well as the average number of wet days in each city below.

Since it doesn’t make sense for me to list every single city in Italy here, I’ve chosen to post the seasonal averages for Milan (in northern Italy), Rome (in central Italy), and Palermo (in Sicily) as examples. For the most up-to-the-minute forecast of what’s happening weather-wise in Italy, both in these cities and in any others you’re planning to visit, I like the Italian meteo.it weather site. It is in Italian, but it’s pretty easy to figure out.
