Best time to visit Porto Venere

Apennine Mountains guard Porto Venere against the cold northern winds of Italy, providing a mild coastal climate in Liguria. When these winds start blowing in summer, they usually dry the air substantially, and you can see the beautiful local tourist attractions from a very long distance, right up to the very Corsica.

Rainfall in Porto Venere is rarely witnessed, but frequent and intermittent rains often fall in autumn, precisely from late October till late November, which is the rainiest month. If you are planning to spend your vacations hiking, it is better to know in advance whether heavy rains are expected during your planned period, because they wash away the walking trails.

In summer, particularly in July, virtually no precipitation occurs. July and August are the hottest months. Dry weather at this time of the year contributes to the concentration in the air of aromas from grapes growing on terraced slopes that tourists cross on foot... This is the “peak season” in the region of Liguria. This influx of tourists affects on the other hand the comfortable travel by city transport, nice breaks in bars and cafes, even the highways become congested. Also remember that the best hotels in this season are “jam-packed”, so book your place in advance.
