    Where in Italy are you going? I was in Italy in late June early July. We went to Rome, Sienna and Florance. I thought I was going to DIE! OMG it was soooo hot.

    My father went in Sept. and he said the weather was nice and plesant.

    I can’t imagine Italy being chilly, but what do I know 😉

    Yes, exactly where in Italy? I went to Italy in (early) March, and it was FREEZING (well, not literally, but still not fun) in Rome and Florence, but Naples was bit more pleasant.

    @BlushingBrideNYC:  Go as far South as possible and close to the sea to stay warm.  Or you could put off the trip by another month or two and enjoy perfect weather.

    @BlushingBrideNYC:  March will not be warm in either country. I voted Italy, as I think there’s more to do that doesn’t rely on the weather so much (museums, galleries, sightseeing etc).

    @barbie86:  I agree with this. Both countries are not going to be warm at this point. I would save Greece for a warmer time of year because so much of that country is visiting the islands which are much more fun in the warmer weather. Plus Italy, especially the cities you mentioned, is going to be great no matter what the weather is. I’ve visited Italy the winter/early spring before and it was definitely jacket weather, but not winter coat (i.e. you don’t need a parka). It will be cooler in Venice and Florence and warmer in Rome and Naples. As long as you aren’t planning on the Cinque Terre or Amalfi, then you won’t miss out on anything in the cooler weather.

    I went to Italy in March a couple of years ago and it was lovely. Perfect weather. I did Rome, Naples, Pompeii, Sorrento and Herculaneum. Highly recommend all of the above except Naples, which I would advise staying as far away from as possible (the museum is lovely, but it is a TOUGH area).

    Unless you are going to the beach&islands, there is much less to do in Greece than Italy (speaking from epxerience). And although March in both places is nowhere close to northern U.S., it will still be relatively chilly (light jacket and short sleeves, def no bathing suits).

    @BlushingBrideNYC:  I went to italy in mid-march back in 2007 and did not have to wear a winter jacket. Jeans and a t-shirt and sometimes a light jacket/hoodie worked.
