Here's more about when to go to Italy:
Altho we now live in Italy, our house is for sale and we’ll go back to the states when it sells. We’ve discussed how we’ll deal with the transition, and know it’ll be difficult. Ideally we’d like to spend several months of the year in Italy, and without a doubt that time will include early November when the new olive oil is pressed. Much as I love the sunflowers and feste of the summer, the fall, with fewer tourists and new, spicy olive oil, will be the ‘must go’ time for us!
I’m sure it was a difficult decision to leave Italy but as you said, you’ll probably return to visit. Umbria is a beautiful region, we had first been looking for houses in Umbria before settling in the Lunigiana of northern Tuscany where houses were a little more affordable. Fall is a beautiful time where we are, too.
We have holidayed in Italy for the last 3 years and due to my husbands job, we have to take how holidays in November, and so far, this has not been a problem, in fact the weather has been so brilliant, we couldn’t of asked for more.
We have a house in Umbria, in a historical paese, in the mountains above Deruta, go there three times a year: 3weeks towards the end April/beginning May, three weeks end August/ early September and four weeks in December / January.
Now looking at buying a second one, between Foligno and Assisi in the mountains.
I think any time of the year is good to be in Italy, especially Umbria!
