We are going on holiday in 3 weeks to Italy for 10 days - hooray! We're going to a wedding and then to a place just outside of Genoa for a week. Does anyone out there know what the weather is likely to be like at this time of the year? We don't know what clothes to take!!
Thanks!

Hello susan. Don't know about October, but I went this Febraury to Genoa and though it was overcast, it certainly wasn't cold. Would imagine it would be fairly mild in October but not hot

Got back from visiting family in Tuscany two weeks ago - weather was very warm but incredibly unpredictable, you could have a glorious morning and then monsoon rain followed by more sunshine and then the most incredible electrical storms. Think this is happening all over Europe though as getting same reports for Ithaca and Zante at the moment.

Hi, just back from family in Italy near Pescara (quite south) and weather was awful. They have gad the wettest August ever on record and beginning of September wasn't any better.

I would advise you bring the same clothes you wear here in October.

It was warm, but we did have 3 days of rain. The other days were nice, not too hot, but hot enough to sit outside for lunch and let children run around naked!
Had a nice time. Got my purse stolen in Genoa, though, so am in the middle of hundreds of phonecalls to replace lost cards etc. We were disappointed that they dont let kids climbthe leaning tower in Pisa, cos dd loved the look of it. We ate and drank very well and a good tome was had by all!
Oh and our apartment was fantastic! It was the first time we had ever gone anyplace self catering (our first real family holiday) and it was excellent.
And the sunniest day was the day of the wedding. Italian wedding are wonderful. The reception started with drinks and nibbles in the hotel garden at 1pm (wedding was at 11) and ended with cake and coffee and champagne at 8pm, abd then the dancing started! We had a real scottish ceilidh and then they brought out the rest of the cakes!
