The weather is fantastic in Italy in June! I'm not just pulling your leg, I know this for a fact. My last three visits to Rome have all been in the month of June. I didn't plan it that way, but apparently the Holy Spirit felt it necessary for me to speak with confidence when I tell you that Rome is lovely in June!
The average temperature starts off at around 68° and gradually climbs up to 74°-77° as the month progresses. Teresa was just there last week, and says, "Pack for summer!"
The best way to do that is to pack clothes that are light, breathable, and can be layered—clothes that are casual, but respectable. Remember, we will be visiting a lot of churches and you will want to dress respectfully. You are not permitted to enter most churches in Europe if you are wearing shorts above the knees or a sleeveless shirt. For me this is my time to wear linen and cotton dresses with a light sweater or blouse tied at my waist. Though warm weather may be predicted, you will want to pack a jacket. And be SURE to bring comfortable walking shoes or sneakers!
There are 13 hours of sunshine each day and with only 1.3 inches of rainfall spread across eight days, it’s unlikely you’ll experience more than a shower during our pilgrimage. But just in case, pack a raincoat and an umbrella. The umbrella can do double duty, shielding you from the rain or the sun. Speaking of that, don't forget to pack sunscreen, sunglasses, and a hat.
