February in Italy
- February is the time of St. Valentine. Do something romantic. Perhaps a visit to a spa resort is in order? Take the waters at Montecatini Terme with your sweet honey.
- The end of the month is carnival time, carnevale in Italian. There is the big one in Venice, which you must prepare well in advance for, but you can easily enjoy the carnevale in Viareggio and the odd and amazing orange tossing in Ivrea.
- If you were a medieval peasant, this would be the time you'd prune your vines.
- Weather is always a concern this time of year. See our Italy Weather and Climate Charts to see current and average weather for February in many tourist cities and towns.
