The Amalfi Coast has a typical Mediterranean climate with temperate winters and very hot, dry summers. Spring and fall usher in delightful weather, with plenty of bright skies and pleasantly warm temperatures.

  • Weather within France varies considerably depending on location. The northern and western parts of the country are subject to weather changes brought in from the Atlantic Ocean and feature mostly mild winters. The south offers a Mediterranean climate with warm summers and easy winters, while the central section’s climate is continental. In the east, the Vosges Mountains accentuate the area’s continental climate, making springs warmer and summers hotter. Showers and drizzle frequently alternate with bright skies. Early autumn can still be mild, but by November, the weather is usually colder.
