When to visit Lake Maggiore
In terms of weather, if you’re looking for long, sun-filled days, April through October are your best months. If you’re after swimming, choose July, August and September. The water is warm, but keep in mind those are also the busiest months of the year.
Rainfall is not unusual during the summer time, with night being colder than what you’d expect – so pack an umbrella for safety.
November through March is a period of good deals in terms of pricing, but beaches and swimming pools are either closed or not suited for swimming. You’re left with visiting and relaxing during this time.
If you’re looking for villas to rent during the winter, be aware that temperatures will hit single digits starting with December, all the way through February. While it might look great during the winter time, activities are mostly restricted, few shops open, so pack accordingly.
