My husband and I want to visit Italy next year, arriving in Rome and departing from Milan. It will be our first trip, and we will probably only have about 14 days. I don't sleep well in very hot rooms, so I'd like to miss the summer heat, and wouldn't mind missing the summer crowds. What are the pros and cons of Sept vs Oct?
Given that time frame, how far ahead to we need to book our flights? Is it best these days to do so online, or ...?
We may have quite a few credit card miles, but given what I've read about troubles with that, I'm not counting on it. Any input re that?
Thanks so much. I've been reading the posts; this is a very knowledgeable group!
