During the summers months (June-August) the weather is delightful with average temperatures in the upper 80s and the sea breeze making it feel a few degrees cooler. 11 hours of daylight allow for plenty of sunbathing and exploring each day. If you are looking for “less busy” travel times. Spring has wonderful weather as well with the average temperature rising to the mid-70s and 10 hours of sunlight. Fall months can drop down to the mid-high 60s and have less daylight, but if sunbathing and swimming aren’t at the top of your must-do list, and shore excursions are, then this might be the perfect travel weather for you.
What to do
The Italian Riviera is home to Cinque Terre, five small coastal villages nestled on the hillside and ready for exploration. They, and the well-known fishing village of Portofino, are easily accessible and offer plenty of attractions. The coastal city of Taormina is known as the Sicilian Monte Carlo, and appeals to those seeking a thrilling nightlife experience. The seaside resort of Cassis is the jewel of the French Riviera; a more intimate alternative to the overcrowded destinations of Nice and Saint Tropez, this hideaway is a must-visit location. Of course, no Mediterranean trip would be complete without a stop in Monaco, the ultimate port of call! The carnival in Gozo (part of the Maltese archipelago) is a popular weekend activity enjoyed by locals and tourists alike. Malta itself is a mecca for watersports enthusiasts, with plenty of chances for windsurfing, wake-boarding and water skiing. Divers can snorkel through the wreckage of Malta’s maritime history or even scuba dive deep below the surface to explore underwater caves.
Generally, the food consists of well-balanced meals, fresh, local and full of flavor. Fresh fruits and vegetables, beans, whole grains, and nuts cooked with olive oil! Red meat and dairy are low in consumption. They tend to use lean proteins like fish and chicken. Lunch is typically the biggest meal and dinners start late, around 8 pm.
