Puglia boasts a wonderful Mediterranean climate that makes it an excellent holiday destination for most of the year.
The spring comes early and is generally warm and sunny, with temperatures rising to the early twenties by the end of April.
The summer is long, hot and dry and lasts from the end May through to the end of September. Temperatures typically rise to around the 30°C mark in July and August, with the occasional hotter week here and there. The sea warms up wonderfully to the mid 20s, making swimming and bathing greatly pleasurable. Puglia's glorious beaches come alive!
The autumn, signalled by the arrival of October and November, remains generally warm with temperatures only really dropping out of the 20s towards the beginning of December.
The winter months can be a little rainy but are generally mild, with average temperatures around the 12-15 °C mark.
