Ten Instagram shots that prove autumn in Italy is simply stunning

Yes, we know, Italy is beautiful in every season. But there’s something especially photogenic about the autumn colours, light, and even the rain.

From the mountains in the north to the beaches in the south, and everything in between, it’s an ideal time to get snapping in the Mediterranean country.

Here’s our round-up of the best autumnal Italian Instagram shots – perfect if you’re looking for travel inspiration, or simply want to admire Italy at its best.

Adige river, Verona. The October fog makes this already picturesque river look like something out of a dream…


Duomo, Florence. The leaves set off the terracotta hues of the Tuscan city’s architecture perfectly at this time of year.


Bagno di Romagna, Emilia Romagna. There are incredible views to be had in the Emilia Romagna countryside – and this view is located near the local spa, for ultimate relaxation.


Funes Valley, Alto Adige. You’ll stumble across gems like this church if you go hiking in the Dolomite mountains.


Valmalenco, Lombardy. Head to this – or your nearest lake – to capture the watery reflections of the foliage.


Seiser Alm, South Tyrol. Autumn is a perfect time to capture some dramatic sunsets, like this one – complete with local horses.


Sila National Park, Cosenza. Another of Italy’s beautiful national parks where you can take a photogenic autumn stroll.


Duomo, Milan. The city’s most famous sight even looks amazing in the rain… perhaps even more so.


Novara di Sicilia, Sicily. This village has repeatedly been voted one of Italy’s most beautiful and in this weather, it’s not hard to see why.
