Winter & Summer months?

Hello, We will be in Italy most of March and the first week in April. Is this time considered Winter when it comes to hotel rates, etc.?

The best answer to your question about seasonal hotel rates will be provided by the hotels themselves. They are not all the same.

We will be in Rome the first 2 weeks, then in Vicenza.

Interesting that the rate for April and July are the same. Would never have thought that! Thanks for the info. Guess there is "no tellin."

So, about 2 weeks in Vicenza? A very good choice, in my opinion. Do you want a hotel, or would an inexpensive self catering B&B or apartment along the bike path very near the Rotunda be more your style?

We already have apartments rented for Rome and Vicenza. However, the last two nights we will be back in Rome. I'm just wondering if hotel rates will be lower in early April than what is quoted on websites now or is it always the same, and they adjust it when you get there. Thanks!!

By way of example, here are the current published rates at my favorite Venice hotel. This for a mid month stay. Month Rate(euro) Jan 100 Feb 100 Rates go to 200 during Carnival Mar 110 Rates go to 200 during Carnival Apr 200 May 240 Jun 220 Jul 200 Aug 160 Sep 230 Oct 230 Nov 110 Dec 100
Venice has a more exaggerated seasonal variation than a lot of other big cities with more diverse economies. Interesting that August is the bargain month between April and October.
