Below are the best locations for a trip from May 14th to May 20th. We’ve taken into account rain, temperature, travel advisories for safety, and number of tourists in the area. In mid May each of these places are the perfect balance between temperate weather and smaller crowds, which also translates into better deals for tourists.
Because we’ve located areas and times where there is a greater chance for hotels/flights to be under capacity and weather is likely to be temperate and dry, the best time to book these 10 trips is usually within 1-4 weeks before travel.
1. Rome, Italy
Rome has perfect weather from May 14th to May 20th. The weather is almost as nice in the weeks before and ideal in the weeks after. Tourism in the area is somewhat high during this time. Choosing Rome this week is a great choice for anyone looking for nice weather and lots of things to do.
The graph below shows how temperatures feel given humidity (heat index) and wind chill. Tourist demand is usually the opposite of price: where demand is low prices are too. For Celsius: click the “best time to visit” link below the graphs.

3. Buenos Aires, Argentina
Due to the lower number of tourists, a trip to Buenos Aires in mid May tends to be much less expensive, and the weather couldn’t be better. This period of ideal weather comes after some similarly enjoyable weather. If booking a longer trip, you’ll want to know that the weather will be slightly less enjoyable towards the end of 30 days. Note that it can get busy here in other seasons.

4. Melbourne, VC, Australia
As with every place on this list, temperatures in Melbourne feel excellent, rain is infrequent, and there are no travel advisories at the moment. Tourists looking for hotels and flights are very uncommon during this time, so prices may be at their lowest. The many hotels here can fill up, but probably won’t during this period. We could also recommend visiting earlier than this, and the weeks following have weather that is not nearly as good as mid May.

5. Seville, Spain
Because Seville can get busy, this is an excellent time to avoid crowds.With far fewer travelers booking during this time compared to the busiest months, hotels and airlines will probably offer some incentives to stay during this period. This is a good time to visit, and the weeks beforehand are somewhat nice. If you’re planning to stay for more than a week, you can expect the weather to be almost as nice.
