Neapolitan Riviera Weather
If you feel like a holiday to the Neapolitan Riviera in the peak months of July and August then prepare for a sunshine break to remember, as temperatures will reach an average of around 28° Celsius. With ten hours of sunshine a day, you'll be more than ready to soak up the sun on the glorious beaches when there is very little chance of rain. However, you'll still be perfectly able to enjoy good weather outside of these times; if you're not much of a sun lover, then exploring the delights of Mount Vesuvius in the lower climates, which average in the low 20s, will ensure you enjoy a comfortable and warm break.
Anyone who has never experienced a holiday in the Neapolitan Riviera before will be in for a treat, as the landscape is truly a feast for the eyes. The imposing Mountain Vesuvius hangs mightily in the background, while fields full of orange groves, vines, trees and flowers stretch as far as the eye can see. The bay of Naples itself is a gem, with the coast offering an array of towns offering wonderfully quaint town squares and churches.
For something truly special, the picture perfect town of Amalfi is a must, while Massa Lubrense, sat 400 feet above the Riviera, offers visitors the chance to unwind while taking in an unbeatable and beautiful view of the entire locale.
