Best Time to Visit

Best Time to Visit

Calabria is located in southern Italy and, as such, is characterised by a hot and dry Mediterranean climate. There are, however, differences inside Calabria: the west coast, for instance, is generally colder and rainier and has high cliffs and small beaches, while the east coast is influenced by the hot and dry air of Africa, and has plenty of large, sandy beaches. The inner part of Calabria is mountainous and experiences low temperatures and heavy snowfall in the winter. If you want to enjoy the beaches and attractions this region has to offer, summer is the best season, roughly from June to September. This period is when most people decide to visit Calabria, as the weather is nice and you can enjoy the vibrant nightlife and the many festivals the major cities have to offer, such as the Summer Arena Festival in Soverato or the Tropea Red Onion and Bluefish Festival in Tropea.
