My Favorite Photos of Autumn in Italy

Autumn in Italy photos in Rome

Ah, autumn in Italy: The weather is crisp, the produce beautiful (don’t you love it when apples and eggplant and truffles are in season?), and the tourist crowds have started to dissipate. It’s also the only time when somehow, inexplicably, I sometimes get a whiff of that countryside woodsmoke-smell—the kind that makes me want to bundle up and go for a hayride—in the center of Rome.

And Italy in autumn not only has a lot going for it—it has gorgeous fall colors, too. And I have the pictures to prove it!

Here are a few of my favorite autumn in Italy photos. Enjoy… and don’t miss my post on five things I love about the fall in Rome!

  1. i’m trying to pin down dates on fall colors. I keep seeing “fall” is a beautiful for color, but that isn’t very specific. Like in vermont, if you go oct. 12th, you blew it; it’s past peak, maybe by a lot depending on how far north or south. If you go Oct. 1st you’ve increased your odds on good color a lot. If you go Sept.15th, there’s no color. Can somebody help me pin this down for Lake Como, Cinque Terre, Florence/Sienna.. thanks

  2. I always love reading your posts before I go to Rome, thank you for writing this! Random question, where can I buy a European hair dryer in Rome? I travel to Europe semi-annually so having a European one would help a lot! Thank you!

    1. Hey, thanks for the kind words! And good question. You can probably find one cheaply at one of the cheap stores around the Termini area that sell lots of electronic bits and bobs (alarm clocks, etc), but I got mine (and a hair straightener!) at the Euronics store just outside Piazza del Popolo at Via Luisa Di Savoia 1. I hope that helps!
