There’s no hiding from it – tourist numbers to Italy are undoubtedly down in 2020, for obvious reasons. But as the country recovers from a turbulent few months, attractions are open and the country is showing signs of life. Let Monastery Stays offer some recommendations to help you plan your upcoming summer getaway.

Smaller summer crowds

For those who can make it to Italy this summer, a unique situation awaits. Imagine soaking in the warm Tuscan sun, strolling around Florence, making your way to the awe-inspiring duomo. While a long queue usually awaits to gain access to the cathedral floor, you will instead find much smaller crowds. Similarly in Rome, Venice, Assisi, Milan. Fewer tourists means shorter lines!
