August is the month when the whole of Italy shuts down, and the Italians go on holiday. The population of Pizzo increases, as Italian holidaymakers seek la dolce vita in Pizzo. Accommodation prices are at a premium, and Pizzo is hot and lively, with evening entertainments and exhibitions in the bustling central square.
The first two weeks of August are the busiest, peaking at the mid-August public holiday, and tailing off towards September. You will love the holiday atmosphere, as Italians throng the streets and beaches relaxing Italian style.
Take a deep breath... the rest of the year Pizzo is quiet. A tranquil oasis of deserted beaches, and warm local people who have time to welcome you to their town. From April to October you will find good weather and a warm welcome in Pizzo. Life follows the relaxed Southern Italian rhythm, including the evening stroll known as the passeggiata. When not at the beach you can join locals socialising at the cafes & restaurants in the main piazza, which is known as 'the living room' of Pizzo.
