Weather & Climate

This area of Northern Italy has typical continental weather, with very hot summers and daily average temperature of about 30-35 °C. Some showers are possible and during the fall there could be fog. Emila-Romagna, Lombardy and Veneto regions are warm in the summer and temperate in the fall. Due to the presence of lakes and rivers and the largest Italian plain, there could be some fog on fall mornings. In general, you can expect typical continental weather, with cold winters and warm, dry summers. In this area the weather is considerably milder year- round than in the central United States. Temperatures average in the mid 30s and 40s °F during winter and in the 50s and 70s °F during spring and autumn. Winter rains can be heavy, but extended periods of sunshine are also common.
