Venice
Best Time of Year to Visit Venice

Venice is justifiably one of Italy's most popular tourist destinations, with a charming combination of scenic beauty and cultural treasures. But, with immense popularity comes the problem of overtourism. To have the most enjoyable experience in Venice while minimizing your imprint on the local people and surroundings, it's advisable to visit outside the peak season. Read on to find out when is the best time of year to visit Venice.

Amalfi
Best Time of Year to Visit the Amalfi Coast: Seasons, Travel Tips, & More

In southern Italy lies the Amalfi Coast, a 31-mile (50 km) stretch of coastline that's the very definition of Mediterannean beauty. Known for its sunkissed lemon groves, pebble beaches, and romantic islands, everyone from rich socialites to budget-conscious tourists holiday here during spring and summer. But despite fluctuations in weather throughout the seasons, the Amalfi Coast offers a great getaway any time of year. You just have to know what to expect.

In just 10 days you can craft an unforgettable Italian vacation that includes many highlights. This, of course, includes the historic locales in Rome, but you'll also travel south to the ruggedly beautiful Amalfi Coast and Capri, a pure postcard region if ever there was one.

Go to Italy! · Italy - Feb 12 - Feb 21, 2020

Traveler: Shey C. - Local specialist: Emi Carletti

Just back from an amazing family vacation! Emi’s recommendations and planning allowed us to see and experience parts of Rome, Milan, Turin and Florence - both through relaxed self exploration within the cities and small group tours for daylong excursions in smaller towns nearby. The hotels, and train travel she organized made it easy to relax and enjoy the trip. Questions arose while we were traveling, and she was quick to reply - so nice to have a friendly local resource! Would definitely recommend and use this service again for future trips. Thank you Emi!

Italy Trip Review 2019 · Italy - Nov 21 - Nov 27, 2019

Traveler: Johnny H. - Local specialist: Valentina Boscoscuro

Valentina has been extremely accommodating throughout the entire process — from proposing an itinerary, to making late changes in our plans due to weather, to ensuring that our trip was going well. Our trip to Italy would not have been the same without her. I would definitely work with her again should I travel back to Italy in the future.

Had the most amazing time in Italy. My daughter and I enjoyed our trip to the hilt. The Kimkim team planned it all out very meticulously down to the very last details. The hotels chosen were perfect and so were the tours. Valentina went out of her way to stay in touch and ensure a great vacation. She was forever suggesting places to eat and things to go. A spl. Shout out to her!

You guys are great and I have already recommended you to my friends. I will definitely go with you folks again!

Our trip was amazing and it was thanks to Valentina that we all had a fantastic time. From the start of this process I knew that I would need help planning this vacation.

Our trip was amazing and it was thanks to Valentina that we all had a fantastic time. From the start of this process I knew that I would need help planning this vacation. I've planned European trips myself before, but I didn't have the time to do it for this vacation. I knew I needed someone's help and expertise. I described how we like to travel and Valentina really understood our preferences and planned a trip that fit them. A perfect mix of sightseeing and relaxation. Our pizza-making class was a particular highlight, something we never would have done if Valentina didn't suggest it. And our other guides worked really well with us, especially Benedetta who took us around Verona.

And while on our trip, Valentina was there with helpful tips and suggestions and for any troubleshooting that we needed (there really wasn't much of any). This whole experience was great and exactly what I needed. I would recommend Valentina (and KimKim) to anyone and would gladly work with her again when it comes time to plan my next trip to Italy.

Salerno - Amalfi Coast · Italy - Jul 20 - Jul 22, 2019

Traveler: Rosanne R. - Local specialist: Emi Carletti

I had a nice time in Salerno. My drivers were on time and helpful, my guide Anna in Salerno was excellent - she new her history and showed me the old part which I found interesting and even showed me street art which I love to see. It was nice to try some local fare as well and the host was lovely. Everything went well without a problem. The accommodation in Salerno was great - a small boutique hotel next to the train station and not too far from the ferry was perfect.
Well done Emi you did your job as requested. I'll use you again.

Italy · Italy - Jun 15 - Jun 21, 2019

Traveler: Kailey P. - Local specialist: Emi Carletti

The planning portion with Edmondo and Valentina were great and a huge relief. They worked very hard and efficiently to answer my questions and address my needs. It was nice to have the trains all booked ahead of time. We weren't too excited about our hotel choices, we felt as though they weren't really 4 stars, and the hotel in Florence was out of the way.

During the actual trip, we hit a few snags and we think it may be a miscommunication between KimKim and the tour groups chosen.

The planning portion with Edmondo and Valentina were great and a huge relief. They worked very hard and efficiently to answer my questions and address my needs. It was nice to have the trains all booked ahead of time. We weren't too excited about our hotel choices, we felt as though they weren't really 4 stars, and the hotel in Florence was out of the way.

During the actual trip, we hit a few snags and we think it may be a miscommunication between KimKim and the tour groups chosen.
In Rome, we went to our meeting spot for the Skip the Line Colosseum, Palatine Hill, and Roman Forum tour at the designated time (15 minutes prior) as directed on the final itinerary. When we arrived there at Romaround, the desk worker told us that we needed to be there 30 minutes earlier and pushed us to the next tour that was 2 hours later. After killing time, we came back and another couple experienced the same issue. When they asked to be put on an earlier tour, their request was granted...meanwhile, my husband and I sat there with no offer of jumping into that tour. After I spoke to the desk worker, he said at first that we couldn't move up, yet another worker was able to make it happen.
For our Vatican Tour the following day, we experienced the same issue. We were given a choice of 10am or 11:30am, the only requirement being that we show up to the tour agency a half hour early. My husband and I showed up an HOUR early for the 11:30am tour and we were immediately told we had to go on the 12:30pm tour because other people had walked in earlier and took our spots. We feel that an easy solution could be put in place at this particular agency; simply hold the spot for visitors who went through a planning agency (like KimKim), tell walk-ins that there are possible spots available but they need to wait, and if they don't show up, then give those spots to walk-ins.
Giving walk-ins priority over people who made weeks in advance was upsetting. This was also frustrating because we knew we were in a time crunch with a later activity.

Again, I greatly appreciate the time my specialists put into my trip, tailoring it to what we wanted. The timing and level of expertise was above and beyond what I expected. However, I was greatly disappointed in the tour agencies chosen in Rome (Florence and Venice tour agencies were awesome) -- hopefully there are other Rome tour guides you can consult with.
