It’s all about timing. To avoid crowds and inflated prices, we recommend the period between high and low seasons when the weather is fine, places are still open and happy to welcome travelers, and you can explore a destination at your own pace. ShermansTravel experts call this magical time and space continuum the Sweet Spot.
When to go to Umbria
Peak Season: June to early-SeptemberApart from being the hottest month of the year (temperatures can reach 90-degrees), Italy teems with visitors. Although August is still popular, be aware many locals go on vacation during this time and hotels, restaurants and shops close.
Off Season: November to MarchForget vacationing during this period—not only is it freezing (average temperature: 40°F), but the dramatic temperature drop even forces hotels and restaurants into hibernation from mid-December to January.
Sweet Spot: April to May; September to OctoberTemperatures are milder in the 60s and there are less people. This is a great time to visit a city such as Assisi and appreciate the basilica without wrestling the masses.
