Climate in Italy and weather forecast - best seasons for visitIf you want to assess the quality of the Italian ski resorts, then you can schedule your trip for the end of December. The exact dates for the opening of the ski season unfortunately, cannot be determined in advance, as it all depends on the specific weather. It also depends on the destination and its altitude above sea level. The longest ski season is in Cervinia. This point is located at an altitude of more than two thousand meters above sea level, and you can ski there starting from the beginning of December until the end of May. However, in the resort in Val di Fiemme for instance, the season lasts only three months (from December to early March). If the reason for the trip is a shopping tour, then the best time to travel is February. During this period in Milan, there is a week of high fashion. Also, hundreds of thousands of tourists visit Italian cities during the period of the largest sales. Winter “balance” begins immediately after Christmas, while that of summer starts usually from the first days of July and lasts until the very end of summer. It is worth noting that during the first days of sales, discounts do not exceed 30%, but in the last days you can buy exquisite branded items with a 75% discount. … Open

It was precisely during this time that the country had the first synagogue. To date, the number of Jews has declined to 15,000. Religious statistics are disappointing. Italy has become one of the European countries where the share of Christians has decreased significantly, as well as adherents of other faiths. This is because the new generation renounces religion. In spite of this, even atheists regularly attend church during all great religious holidays such as Christmas or Easter. In this they see not so much religious act as the historically established family traditions. … Open
