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

By Ishaan | Updated Aug. 21, 2023

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.

June Weather by Region

Weather conditions in Italy during June can range from warm and slightly rainy to hot and dry depending on which part of the country you're in. By studying the country's three separate climate regions described in detail below, you'll have a much better idea of what to expect as far as expected precipitation and average temperatures are concerned.

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.

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.
