Intro

What’s the weather like in Italy in May?

From the Mediterranean shores of Sicily to the dramatic peaks of the Alps, Italy is a vast country with varying weather depending on where you visit. As a rule of thumb the northern regions are usually slightly cooler than the south. Wherever you stay at this time of year though, you’ll enjoy warm temperatures, increasing amounts of sunshine and fewer crowds compared to the height of summer.

Averages

In May, the capital Rome has an average temperature of 21°C, while Venice is slightly cooler at an average of 17°C. Naples on the south Mediterranean coast enjoys highs of 23°C, making this a good time of year to spend days on the beach. At night, things can get quite cool with lows of 11°C in Rome, so it’s a good idea to pack some extra layers. With just over 30mm of rain expected in the capital, and just over 70mm in Milan, there is a chance of showers so make sure you bring a light rain coat.
