Cinque Terre Weather and Historic Climate
What will the weather be like when your vacation rolls around?

by James Martin

Cinque Terre Weather Historic Rainfall for the Cinque Terre

As you can see by the climate charts, temperatures soar in the Cinque Terre in July and August. Things cool off a bit in September and October, but the average rainfall peaks in October, so there’s a trade-off. At grape harvest, the trails can get crowded at times.

April and May in the Cinque Terre can be quite nice, and maybe May, along with September, would be the ideal time to plan a vacation on the Italian Riviera.
