Weather Averages for Lake Como in July
Averages for Lake Como in July
Italy’s popular resort of Lake Como in the Lombardy region in the north of the country draws crowds of visitors from all over the world, especially during the warm and sunny summer months.
July is the hottest month of the year and as such visitors are advised to exercise caution with the sun and heat. Daytime temperatures can reach 30 degrees Celsius , with overnight temperatures staying at around 15 degrees - not much chillier than a standard British summer! It’s suggested that travellers pack a high factor sunscreen and stay out of the sun during the hottest part of the day; usually between 12pm - 3pm.
For those who have enjoyed their fair share of the sun and are in need of a little shade, looking in the many shops in the Lake Como area is a fun way to spend a few hours. Although Lake Como is not well-known for its shops, the area is actually a secret shopping paradise. The close proximity to the fashion capital of Milan means there are many high-end designer shops for browsing.
Silk production is a popular business in Lake Como and many silk scarves can be purchased from local shops. For a behind-the-scenes look, visitors should head over to the Educational Silk Museum to see why Como is known as the ‘City of Silk’.
With the evenings being so mild, a meal out in Lake Como is a great way to spend your evening. The Ristorante Il Ceppo in Valbrona offers authentic Italian tastes such as tortellini and almond biscotti.
