What’s the weather like in Italy in March?
From Mediterranean shores to the dizzying heights of the Alps, Italy’s climate varies depending on where you visit. In March, Italy’s cooler winter temperatures start to get much milder as spring arrives. With some wet weather and cloudy days, you won’t be spending much time on the beach. Instead you can explore the county’s many cultural and historical sights, without enduring the heat of the summer. Although temperatures are still quite cold, March has plenty of sunshine, making it a popular time to plan holidays to Italy.
With average daytime temperatures of around 10°C, March is still a relatively cool month in Italy. At night, temperatures can dip to as little as 4°C so make sure you pack plenty of warm layers for evenings out. With around 68mm of rain in Rome, 41mm in Milan and 34mm in Sicily, wet weather depends on the terrain but showers are usually short-lived, and don’t happen every day. The Mediterranean is a chilly 14°C in March, so you’ll probably need a wetsuit if you want to go for a swim.
