The best time of year to view glorious wildflowers on a wildflower walk in Italy varies from south to north. The best time to view wildflowers in Sicily is from mid-March to mid May, while in Umbria and Tuscany, the months of May and June are ideal. In the mountains of the Dolomites, our Wildflowers in the Dolomites walking and hiking tour is timed to the peak of the wildflower season in July, when it is hot in the cities, and parched in Sicily, we head to the Dolomites for a “second spring” – July this is the ideal time for a hiking tour in the Dolomites, without the summer crowds and with exquisite orchids and a a myriad of wildflowers in bloom.
Several of our small group walking tours in Italy are timed to coinicide with the splendid wildflower season. See our walking tours below held during Italy’s wildflower season.
