What a beautiful trip! I'm baffled by the moody weather though. Is it normally like that? If my family would push thru with our trip for next month... should I prepare winter coats (like serious coats like these: https://slopehound.com/best-winter-coats-for-extreme-cold/) or juts some sweater will do? (I hate the cold, hence the legit coat options)

May has been unusually wet and cool all across Italy. We are hoping for more "normal" weather in June. A lot also depends on where you are going - the weather in the mountains of Italy can change frequently, whereas Sicily is usually always hot this time of year.

I brought a light fleece sweater and a cotton sweater on our trip and wore them both with a light scarf. That kept me warm enough. Steve brought a jacket - light jacket but it has a warm lining. I did not bring anything warmer. Usually at this time of year all I would need is my cotton sweater. I always bring a fleece for emergencies. That might be a good option for you.

It did get warm during the day. And we got lots of sun. It was just surprising to not have warm evenings.

I don't remember being particularly cold at Villa Trotta when we stayed there in May (many years ago) but I'm sure I had warm sweaters with me as I'm generally cold whatever the weather.

I love your pictures Pauline, they really bring the story to life.
