Italy Weather in June 2024: Where to Go and Travel Tips (2024)

You can expect gorgeous summer weather in Italy during the month of June. Although the early mornings and late evenings in northern Italy will be a little chilly, it will be warm and sunny in most parts of the country throughout the day. The few scattered June showers around the Peninsula will largely be ineffective in shooing the sun away from showing you a good time.

The incredible summer weather in Italy during June does bring with it huge hordes of tourists to the popular summer destination and it will be crowded in most parts of the country. Unfortunately, there's not much you can do about this. This is especially true of most museums in most major cities. Prices will rise as this is the peak travel season in Italy.

Except for a few lightweight scarves and sweaters for the early hours of the mornings and late hours of the evenings in northern Italy, most of your packing for June in Italy should be centered around including light summer clothing like dresses, linen or cotton shirts and shorts, sandals, a pair of comfortable walking shoes, sunglasses, a sunhat, and if you plan on spending extensive hours at the beach down south, your bathing suits and some trusted sunscreen.

Shanghai 2024

Italy Weather in June 2024: Where to Go and Travel Tips (6)

Shanghai is an amazing mix of modern and historical China. Our guide Kris was great and very flexible when it came to completing the itinerary which was helpful considering the poor weather + visibility on the first day when we were supposed to visit Shanghai tower. Walking along the river front (bund) area was a big highlight for us.

Shanghai trip for Mihail

Italy Weather in June 2024: Where to Go and Travel Tips (8)

Me and my wife had a trip to China and part of it we spent in Shanghai. Our private tour guide was Kris Lee and I have to say he was very much up for the task. His knowledge of China's history was quite comprehensive and more than I could have expected. If only I could have that kind of memory. His level of English exceeded my expectations and that of course served us very well not only in understanding the Chinese culture, traditions, way of life, etc, but also allowed us to order meals, drinks, make purchases, ask whatever questions coming to mind, making us comfortable to experience the place without the inherent language issues we could have had otherwise. All in all Kris Lee is certainly an asset for any travel agency from China

Zhangjiajie/ Spectacular scenery and great taste of local culture.

Italy Weather in June 2024: Where to Go and Travel Tips (12)

Zhangjiajie immediately went to the top of our list of natural attractions in the world. The landscapes are fascinating and unique. We really valued the guidance by China Highlights. Roger was good accommodating to our needs during the planning phase. In the actual trip Linda provided us with knowledgeable and passionate guidance. She was very personable and respectful at the same time. Her advice was critical to be able to see so much - as in every park or area there are multiple buses to move around. She showed us the best spots at the best time.Local restaurant selection was good. One piece of advice- make sure to specify how much spice you enjoy in your food. Local food can be quite spicy.

We spent 3 days in Beijing with Helen as our guide. We went to TianAnMen, Forbidden City and MuTianYu Great Wall to name a few.

My last stop was Shanghai. I was greeted by Martin. It is pretty much a 1 day itinerary there. Martin took me to all the stops and introduced me to a cool tea house not on the agenda. With the extra time we had we also stopped Starbuck’s Reserve which is the largest in the world. Martin also helped me make reservations at the Old Jazz Club at the Fairmont Hotel.

Amazing trip in China

Italy Weather in June 2024: Where to Go and Travel Tips (22)

Guides were Mark in Beijing, Jenny in Xi’an, Frank in Guilin/Yangshuo and Kris and Peter in Shanghai. I can’t say enough how wonderful each of them were to us. They worked very hard to give us a five star tour. The drivers were five star as well. Our hotels were very clean and wonderful with a great breakfast buffet each morning. Our guides would take us to a great locals place for lunch each day and then dinner we were on our own, but each guide would give us fantastic places to go. I know without a doubt our trip was exceptional due to booking with Liberman at China Highlights Tour Company.

I've had multiple guides for different locations with China highlights but Joy was exceptional. She was easy to talk to, super knowledgeable and also amazingly organised. When visiting the Yungang grottoes not only did I get wonderful explanations of the symbolism of the cave carvings and history of the art styles but Joy even prepared a notepad for the commemorative stamps available there so that I had a souvenir to tax home with me.

Northern Italy: 13°C-27°C (55°F-81°F)

If you plan on visiting northern Italy during June, remember that while the afternoons are nice and warm, the evenings can get a tad chilly. The average maximum temperature in the region hovers closer to the 27°C (81°F) mark while the average minimum temperature hovers closer to the 15°C (59°F) mark.

You can expect it to be hot and humid in northern cities like Milan and Venice as a monthly total of about 80 mm (3.1 inches) of rainfall is expected in the region for about a third of the month.

Central Italy: 16°C-27°C (61°F-81°F)

Central Italy experiences near perfect weather conditions over the course of June. The average temperature high in the region during the month is 25°C (77°F) whereas the average temperature low is 16°C (61°F).

Not much rainfall is expected in central Italy during June. The area generally receives about 35 mm (1.4 inches) of rainfall for about 5 days during the month, so you can expect it to be very sunny and enjoyable.

June is a warm month in southern Italy. The average maximum daytime temperature in the region during June is around 27°C (81°F) and the average minimum nighttime temperature is around 21°C (70°F).

Best Places to See in Italy in June

1. Tuscany

Avoid the big crowds of Florence and head on down to the beautiful Tuscan countryside if you want a truly authentic Italian experience. You'll develop a profound appreciation for nature as you sit and sip on some of the best wine the world has to offer with stunning views of colorful wildflowers sitting atop lush green hills for as far as the eye can see!

2. Umbria

Not quite as popular as her older sister, Tuscany, Umbria – or the Green Heart of Italy, as it's popularly known – is absolutely incredible in June. The weather is perfect and the province is home to some of the most romantic and quaint villages in Italy like Spoleto and Spello. The flower festivals here are not to be missed!

3. Sardinia

Sardinia in June is, surprisingly, not quite as busy as most other parts of the country. The really big groups of tourists usually arrive here in the months that follow, so if you're looking for some relaxing quiet time on the beach to take in breathtaking views and crystal clear blue waters, the island of Sardinia is where you should be headed!

June Crowds and Costs

June, being one of the peak summer months, is also one of the busiest times in the year insofar as travel season in Italy is concerned. The good weather brings with it huge crowds of tourists from all over the country, the continent, and the world. As a result, prices surge and it's almost impossible to carve out a good deal anywhere you go.

Do yourself a favor and plan far ahead if you want to not pay over the odds for anything and book tickets in advance if you want to be able to visit your favorite museums and do so without standing in lengthy lines.

While you can expect crowds almost anywhere you go in Italy during June, you can expect it to be especially busy during the day of, and during the days leading up to, Republic Day. It also gets very crowded in Rome during the Feast of St. Peter and St. Paul, and in Florence during the Summer Solstice.

What to Wear in Italy in June

Most of Italy will remain warm during the month of June. A few lightweight scarves, your favorite dresses, linen or cotton shorts and shirts, comfortable walking shoes, sandals, sunglasses, and a sunhat should all make their way to your June-in-Italy packing list.

While northern Italy will remain hot during the afternoons, it can be quite chilly there during the early hours of the mornings and evenings post sunset. As such, it wouldn't hurt to bring along a few extra lightweight sweaters or jackets with you.

If you plan to spend some time soaking up the sun on the beautiful beaches of Sardinia or Sicily, do remember to bring your bathing suits, good sunscreen, and towels with you.

June Events in Italy

Republic Day: La Festa della Repubblica, or Italy's Republic Day, falls on June 2 and it is a national holiday meaning all schools, businesses, and government offices remain closed on this day. Nationwide celebrations in the form of parades and firework displays can be observed, but the grandest of these celebrations takes place in the capital city of Rome.

The best part, though, is that your long-awaited trips to the country's many museums and attractions will remain a possibility since they stay open for tourist season even on this special day commemorating Italy's shift from monarchy to republic.

Do keep in mind that public transportation schedules may get affected and more than usual traffic ought to be expected in the days leading up to the holiday.
