What’s the weather like in Italy in October?
Italy’s position on the Mediterranean coast, as well as its mountains, cause it to have quite different weather depending on what region you visit. The Alps protect most of Italy from cold northern winds, which along with the Mediterranean gives the country quite pleasant weather. You’ll get the best weather in the south in October, although there’s more rain and cooler temperatures than summer. Things are coolest in the mountains which get more popular for snow sports as the year goes on.
Rome is in Italy’s south and gives a good idea of the country’s weather. You’ll have an average high of 23ºC in October, which drops to quite a cool 11ºC at night making it nice and pleasant in the day but necessary to wear warmer clothes in the evenings. Humidity’s low, while there’s 38mm of rain over eight days. You can expect 11 hours of daylight with six hours of sunshine at a moderate UV level. Sunset’s just before 7pm at the start of October and closer to 5pm by the end of the month because of daylight saving.
