About visiting Italian cities, it depends on which season and which weather you prefer to spend all day exploring a city.
A cheap way to travel in Italy is by avoiding it during the high season, that is around the holidays like Christmas and Easter, and during Summer.
If you wish to spend also some days on the beach, all the cities are well connected to the coast by a few hours top by train or car, so every city will be perfect to visit in Italy to combine culture and relax (just book your holiday from June to September to get the warmest weather).
WHAT IS THE BEST TIME TO VISIT THE ITALIAN BEACHES?
Summertime is perfect if you want to plan a trip to Italy to visit the beautiful beaches, but if you travel on a budget, try to avoid July and August when prices are higher.

If you choose to travel to Italy to spend time at the beach, don't forget to look for places to visit in the area, Italy is full of beautiful seaside cities and marvelous little villages to spend some time exploring.
