April/May and October/November are pleasantly warm. June/September are the hottest months. Showers are common in Autumn.
The following are essential: waterproof jacket, fleece jacket or jumper (the evenings can be cool), T-shirts, comfortable walking trousers, shorts, sunhat, sunglasses and high factor sun-cream. Between April and early October you should expect to live in T-shirts and shorts during the day, but please be aware that temperatures and the weather change quickly and it is much cooler at night. For around-town wear you may like to bring some slightly smarter clothes - the Italians dress well when they go out. There are opportunities to spend time at the beach, so bring a towel and swimming costume. From October to early April it will be cooler during the day and from November to mid-March it can be cold. It is also quite likely to rain. You should come prepared for this and bring waterproof trousers and jackets, walking boots, warm clothes, woolly hat, gloves and scarves.
Comfortable shoes, and sandals for relaxing. Unless on awalking trip where comfortable boots will be recommended
