June trips throughout Italy are sun-soaked and busy. The weather typically feels as though summer is already underway with temperatures ranging from 60-80 degrees Fahrenheit. The high-season is already in full swing by June which means larger crowds and higher prices, but given the almost guaranteed perfect weather, it’s all worth it. The biggest holiday of the month, the Festa della Repubblica, is celebrated on June 2. The national holiday celebrates the founding of Italy as a unified republic. Big parades and fireworks displays are held all over the country. Verona’s annual summer opera festival begins in June as well as many patron saint feast days throughout Italy. So, if you enjoy warm climates, people-watching and summer festivals, Italy in June can be fantastic.
