Best time to go to Otranto
If you’re staying in the Campania region, the summer months are scorching – temperatures hit 28°C in July and August. In spring and autumn, the mercury hovers around the 18°C mark, and winter is still pretty mild, too – you won’t see the thermometer get lower than around 14°C. Meanwhile, Sicily’s closeness to Africa means that summer temperatures swing between hot and scorching. April temperatures hover around the low 20s, and from May to September the mercury climbs to around 30°C. October to December are the wettest months, seeing a couple of inches falling each month. There are occasional winter storms, too, but these are pretty rare.
