I'm planning to visit Italy in the month of April 2016, would it be raining? If so, would it rain all month or a few days here and there?
Depending, in the center of Italy in Tuscany there are nice days, but you can find always something to do with rain, too
regards and welcome to Italy
It does rain in April, we had pretty heavy downpours when we were in Rome and Milan but generally speaking it never really rained for a WHOLE day. Make sure you have some waterproof shoes and a small umbrella that you can keep in your purse just in case. Museums are a great way to spend rainy days!
It really depends which part of Italy you're visiting. Rain isn't typical in the Rome region in April which make it a popular time for tourists to visit, but weather patterns can be crazy and change quickly. Practically speaking, it's a good month to plan a trip. I can't speak for the rest of Italy, but some research should yield typical patterns/climates. :)
Where in Italy? From North to South Italy is long more then 1000km. From Alps to Sicily the climate is different. In any case April is spring time and the season start to be mild
In Italy we use to say April is crazy! In fact there are a lot of chance that it will rain but it isn't really predictable. For sure May is a more reliable month. Also the southern Italy is a lot more sunny than the north.
