We will be honeymooning In Rome and Florence and I just wanted to know if anyone has been to Rome and Florence in October. If so whats the weather like??? I’m really nervous because I don’t know what to expect and I don’t want to have to pack heavy coats!
We will be there from the the 21st-30th.
Thanks for your help 🙂

We’ll be in the same area at the very end of October…I found the site holiday-weather.com super helpful for temperature averages. I’m packing flexible layers, but not a heavy coat. I’m going with a rainproof but relatively lightweight outer layer (like a mid thigh length lightweight trench), and a wool blazer. If there’s an unexpected cold snap, I’ll just have to purchase something wonderful and Italian!
Basically, I’m packing for early December in New Orleans.

The last time I was in Italy was early November, and it was lovely. It rained a lot in Assisi but Milan, Florence and Rome were generally long sleeve/light jacket weather.

@Crazy_inLove: Flexible layers are the way to go… we landed in Rome mid-October last year, spend 3 days there, then did a 7 cruise, then had three more days in Rome, and returned on the 30th. The first three days it was warm, capri’s, t-shirts, and sandals weather. Then, after the cruise, the weather turned chilly and rainy, and i wore jeans, long sleeve t-shirts, a cardigan, fleece vests, and a light rain jacket, and bought a cheap umbrella from a street vender. It was still beautiful, though, and we had just as much fun in the rain. 🙂 A pretty scarf is also helpful, will keep you warm chilly mornings or evenings and can be folded and put into a purse if the sun gets hot.

Going on a honeymoon especially during the touristy season can get really annoying sometimes, especially when you have to rush around with the other tourists, and not be able to get any quiet time with your partner. So on your honeymoon, i would suggest you to take it in a slow and relaxed pace. On my honeymoon with my husband, we went to Rome and Florence. We did all the regular sight seeing but it was getting quite tiring after a while. So on one of the days we just spend the day strolling by the parks in Rome, and had a bike tour with one of the locals in Rome. She then suggested us to try out dining with BonAppetour.
They are a website where travelers can book meals with locals who invite travelers for a meal at their home. We loved it! It was fun, relaxed and a perfect end to our honeymoon. BonAppetour also has cooking classes with the locals, which I want to be trying out on our next vacation! Getting messy in the kitchen is actually very romantic!

Crazy_inLove: I was just in Rome this year in mid October. I was wearing shorts/skirt and tank top. It was mid 70s-mid 80s. I would definitely pack layers in case it rains or is more chilly. There are several sites that list average temps for locations month by month.
