Congratulations on graduating and what a wonderful gift you
are being given. Cinque Terre is breathtaking. Here is a
site which includes weather information. The winter is
described as "mild".
Visiting Rome, Florence and Venice will give you many
highlights of Italian culture. The earliest time of the year
that we have visited is May and the nights were cool but not
uncomfortable. Other Ziners will have more information on
winter travel in Italy.
