Exploring the Best Destinations in Italy to Visit in March

Looking for a March getaway? Here are some fantastic destinations to consider:

The Dolomites in March

March is still a great time to enjoy winter sports in the Dolomites. The region offers world-class skiing and snowboarding opportunities with a good chance of snow cover, making it a prime destination for winter sports enthusiasts. The Dolomites are known for their stunning natural beauty, and the snow-capped peaks and winter landscapes in March offer a picturesque backdrop for outdoor activities and sightseeing. The contrast between the white snow and the dramatic rock formations is particularly striking during this time of year.

Venice in March

March is an ideal time to visit, as the crowds from Carnival will have cleared out, and the larger crowds won't return until Easter. Enjoy people-watching during the Carnivale festivities, and don't forget your camera!

NOTE: Easter falls on March 31, 2024 - So Venice at the end of March 2024 may be crowded.

Sicily in March

Sicily experiences mild and pleasant weather, with temperatures starting to warm up as spring approaches. March is a time when Sicily's landscape comes to life with colorful blooms and blossoming flowers, making it a visually stunning time to explore the island's natural beauty. The countryside and coastal areas are particularly picturesque during this time of year.

Central Italy - Regions of Lazio (Rome), Tuscany (Florence), and Umbria (Assisi) in March

By mid-March, the region will be in full bloom, with breathtaking floral displays adorning buildings and the countryside. Visit the botanical gardens for an aromatic experience and great photo opportunities. For fewer crowds, consider heading to the museums, but be sure to book early and make reservations for your visit to the major sites.

Puglia (Alberobello, Matera, Lecce) in March

Puglia along with all of Italy hosts various cultural events and festivals in March, providing visitors with the opportunity to immerse themselves in local traditions and celebrations. For example, some towns in Puglia celebrate the Feast of San Giuseppe (St. Joseph's Day) with processions, traditional foods, and other festivities. Puglia is still considered "off the beaten path," making crowds a non-issue year-round, except possibly in August when many Italians head to the coast.

Amalfi Coast in March

Experience pleasant temperatures without the crowds. The Coast in March is just waking up after a long winter break. Some hotels along the coast may reopen at the end of March or early April, so be sure to research your favorites in advance
