In the North, there is an alpine climate, while in the South there are typical Mediterranean temperatures. In winter, temperatures rarely drop below 0°C, except in the mountains, where it often drops to tens of degrees below zero. In summer, temperatures range from 24-28°C, with high humidity on the coast. The coldest months are December and January, this is the perfect period for winter sports. Between July and August, there are ideal conditions for a beach holiday, although many choose these months to go to the mountains and enjoy the coolness of high altitudes.

The best periods to rent a campervan in Italy are spring and autumn. In these months there are fewer tourists, and you can visit the most beautiful Italian cities with total tranquility. In the summer period, the beaches are very crowded and prices are higher, so if you want to organize a beach holiday, September and June are the best months. February is the perfect month for those who love snow and winter sports, while December and January are busier due to the large influx of tourists during the Christmas period. Moreover, between February and March, you can attend one of the most famous festivities in Italy: the Carnival of Venice.
