Lake Maggiore, also known as Lake Verbano, is the second largest lake in the whole country (212 km²). Its territory extends over two countries on the alpine border of Italy and Switzerland (between the Alps and the Padana plain) where 80% of its surface corresponds to Italy and 20% to Switzerland. It occupies two Italian regions (Lombardy and Piedmont) and one Swiss canton (Ticino).
High Season. It corresponds to the summer months (June, July and August) with August being the most expensive and crowded with tourists. But traveling at this time also has its attraction because not only the days are longer (which allows you to take better advantage of each day) but, as the temperatures are much more pleasant, you can even take the opportunity to take a dip.
Low Season. It corresponds to the winter months (December, January and February) being the month of February the least advisable due to the extreme cold that can occur in some areas. However, December is a good time, you will hardly find people and it is still not too cold, although most of the villas and palaces are closed at this time.

The celebration of Christmas lasts until Epiphany, January 6, when La Befana is celebrated. Celebrations vary from city to city, with special highlights in Venice and Urbania in the Marche region. January is a great month for skiing in Italy, as many of the best resorts in the Alps and Dolomites have fewer people than in high season. On January 17, the feast of St. Anthony Abbot is celebrated in many towns in the north and center of the country. Bonfires, dances and toasts set the mood for the feast of the patron saint of butchers, domestic animals, basket makers and gravediggers.
In February, temperatures begin to rise, but it is still too early to put away your coat. The ski season reaches its peak coinciding with the school vacations, so the slopes are crowded. Temperatures range from 0°C in the Alps in the north to 15°C in the sunnier south.

If there is one celebration that stands out above all others in February, it is Carnival. Although these pre-Lenten celebrations are held in many cities, Venice is undoubtedly the most famous. The floating city is transformed into an open-air theater, replete with decorated masks, elegant capes and lavish carnival balls, including dinner and entertainment. Other cities where carnival is celebrated in style include Viareggio, Verona and Ivrea, where a huge food fight, known as the Battle of the Oranges, is organized. If you don’t feel like getting dirty, go to Norcia, a town in Umbria, to try the delicacy tartufo nero (black truffles).
Known as the month of roses, May brings the first hints of summer with warmer temperatures and a countryside landscape covered in flowers. The average maximum temperature is usually between 18°C and 21°C (64°F and 70°F). However, as it gets cooler at night, don’t forget to bring a jacket or light coat.
