June is the ideal month for all those who want to enjoy beautiful beaches and clean sea without having to share the other half of the towel with their neighbour.
The month that welcomes summer is perfect for a holiday in Italy: the beautiful coastline of Sicily and the magnificent stretches of sand in Apulia, Positano in Campania, Tropea in Calabria, Noli in Liguria and Forte dei Marmi in Tuscany await you with open arms for unforgettable days.
Let's take a closer look at these destinations so that you can choose the best place for your June holiday in Italy.
Starting from the north in our little "Tour of Italy" with Liguria. The Ligurian Riviera can be visited at any time of the year thanks to its typically Mediterranean climate; here, in fact, the bathing season already starts in May and the month of June is certainly one of the best months to enjoy its beauties.
The temperature in this month varies around 25° C,
Characterized by breathtaking landscapes overlooking the sea, Liguria has a coastline composed of unique beaches, which are very suggestive thanks to the natural context in which they are inserted.
This town has a very ancient history; even today there are many testimonies present in its alleys.
On its sandy coast, fishermen sell fresh fish, returning early in the morning from their catch: a beautiful tradition, still very much alive, which is a peculiarity that distinguishes this pretty village.
Forte dei Marmi
In Versilia, has been considered an "in" destination for many years thanks to the presence of numerous VIPs who regularly visit its crowded discos, its luxurious shops and its renowned restaurants.
The beaches are entirely made up of fine golden sand and have state-of-the-art bathing establishments able to satisfy even the most demanding tourist.
In addition to the Versilia coast, among the most beautiful beaches in Tuscany we can certainly mention, for example, Cala Violina in Scarlino, Cala Giovanna on the Island of Pianosa, and not to be missed Fetovaia on the Island of Elba.
He most interesting and beautiful part of the upper Adriatic is probably located in the centre of the Marche region in the province of Ancona.
The seventies were the years that marked the tourist boom in this area, and today it is a favourite destination for many Italians and northern Europeans.
Monte Conero is identified with a number of municipalities and their beaches, one of which is Sirolo, located on the first part of the mountain, a small town from which you can see much of the coastline with the mountain overlooking the sea.
The beaches in Le Marche are beautiful, some of which are not very popular, especially in June.
The most famous is the Spiaggia dei Sassi Neri (Beach of the Black Stones), even if they are actually white, the sea is beautiful and the water very clean, the seabed is not high, but rises after a few metres.
Another important point on Monte Conero is Porto Novo, a small village of hotels and campsites at the foot of the Conero; the small bay from which you can reach the Due Sorelle rocks by boat is beautiful.
Just under ten kilometres away are the clustered houses of Positano, clinging to the rock and with flowered terraces.
The village should be visited by walking slowly through the narrow alleys, along the steps protected by the white walls of the houses, interrupted by gardens and cascades of bougainvilleas and lemon pergolas.
Shopping is one of Positano's musts: dozens of small, well-stocked shops displaying dresses, shirts, trousers, jackets in soft cotton, linen and silk fabrics, ceramics, costume jewellery and, of course, the famous handmade, made-to-measure sandals.
The municipality of Otranto in the province of Lecce lies on the Mediterranean coast of Apulia and is a town devoted to fishing and tourism.
Its symbol is the Punta Palascia lighthouse, which has now become an important museum of the sea.
Otranto's proximity to the east coast and its particular geographical position has, for better or worse, marked its history as it has always had economic and cultural links between east and west.
It is currently the natural capital of the extreme heel of southern Italy, from which the name Terra d'Otranto also derives.
Other tourist attractions to visit in Otranto include the Colle delle Memorie (Hill of Memories), the Clock Tower, the Diocesan Museum and the Bastione dei Pelasgi (Bastion of the Pelasgi), which serves as a promenade on a terrace overlooking the sea where in the evening, young people meet to listen to some music and dine al fresco.
It is considered by many to be the best view in town with a panoramic view of the harbour, which proudly displays its azure waters and in the distance on a clear day you can see the mountains of Albania.
Tropea is rightly called the Pearl of Calabria; its crystal-clear waters and magnificent white beaches distinguish its coastline, making it a much sought-after destination for tourists from all over the world.
The Rotonda beach and the Grotticelle Bay represent the best the Italian landscape has to offer. Besides Tropea and some very special places, unique in the world, such as the Arco Magno beach, Calabria offers many other wonderful coastlines: Caminia near Catanzaro, Santa Domenica di Ricadi in Vibo Valentia and the Tonnara di Palmi.
Is an Italian island belonging to the Aeolian archipelago in Sicily.
It is the smallest and least elevated island of the Aeolian archipelago, as well as the oldest, and with the islets of Basiluzzo, Spinazzola, Lisca Bianca, Dattilo, Bottaro, Lisca Nera and the rocks of Panarelli and Formiche, it forms a micro-archipelago between Lipari and the island of Stromboli on a single submarine base.
From a geological point of view, Panarea is the oldest island of the Aeolian Islands, and the surrounding islets are all that remains of the eruptive phenomena of a single volcanic basin, now almost completely submerged and eroded by the sea and the wind.
Divided lengthwise by a high ridge, only the eastern and southern parts of the original island remain, with relatively low-lying coastlines characterised by small beaches and vast flat areas, formerly planted with vines and olive groves, the terraces of which can still be seen today, having been used for farming, now abandoned.
