Hello Guys,

I am planning a 7 days trip to Italy in 1st week of December 2019.
The tentative itinerary is 1. Venice(2 Days), 2. Florence(2 Days) & 3. Rome(3 Days).
I need to know if it is good time to travel to Italy in early December? Will there be rains/very low temperatures?
Is this travel plan good for 7 Days?
Please suggest any must visit places(museum, historic places,restaurants,etc) in these 3 cities.
Any & all suggestions & information is most welcome.

Thank you in advance!!

It's not the best time. You will see rain almost every day.

For your itinerary: you've forgotten to count the travel-days between each destination. So in total it would be 9 days.

My only concern for you is if you are only there for 7 days total the travel time between the cities will limit your time. Your two days in Florence will be limited to one. And your three days in Rome would be limited to 2. My suggestion would to stay in one city, maybe Rome, the entire seven days and then plan day trips to other cities while you are there.

At the most I would plan on two cities over seven days - perhaps Rome and Florence and leave Venice for another trip. You could have three good days in each and use the middle day for travelling.

I went to Venice in November for six days and we had no rain at all. And it was a great time of year to avoid the crowds.

Of course, this is possible. You have been lucky. But it is not the norm, it could be absolutely different.
November is the month with the most rain in the year.

Take an umbrella. That's what we do and it works. If it rains, you're prepared. If it doesn't rain, enjoy the weather. It may be chilly but it won't be cold. Some of the Christmas markets may be setting up if you're lucky. It is early for that though.

As others have suggested, I'd recommend visiting Florence and Rome and saving Venice for a future trip. With only a week, you might even consider Florence OR Rome. I don't know where you are starting, but if you're from the USA, you may have a day or so of jet lag to deal with. We're from California and it's a 9-hour time change for us. It can take a couple days to get used to it.
