January and February are low season. Depending on when Easter is March can be high season. Donna

Those should be low season, but if you're asking about hotel rates, some dates might be higher than others within that time period. (Holy Week, for example, sometimes falls in March.)

Mostly lower but Rome is packed most of the time. The first part of January will still be caught up in the holidays and then there is Easter and the run up to the Holy week. Rome really has only two seasons - High and Very High.

I highly recommend that time of year. I went in nud-late Jan a couple of years ago and it was undoubtly the most pleasant time I've ever spent in Rome. Christmas Creches were still in Churches in the mid January; no lines, even at the Vatican Museums; time to myself in smaller museums and less visited churches.

All I know is that I landed in Venice the day after Carnival and you could throw bowling balls in Venice and not hit anyone. We had Venice to ourselves for about three days before the weekend rush. You might want to try that in Rome.

I am going in mid Feb which is carnival in Venice but I will be in Florence and Rome. Will this festival be celbrated in these cities as well and have larger crowd's?
