One of Europe's sunniest spots with up to 13 hours of daily sunshine. It's "shoulder-season" meaning ideal for sea swimming and outdoor activities with few crowds. And just a couple of hours by plane!
Less crowds than during the height of summer, Sorrento is vibrant with colour and bathed in glorious golden light. Try one of the hillside treks among the abundantly aromatic orange and lemon trees
Perfect for a sunshiney holiday with increasing temperatures. The slower pace of high summer is on the horizon but for now, the island is energised with preparations for impending fun and festivities
Sunshine, warmth and festivals; visit during the feast of St Anthony when Lisbon goes crazy for sardines and, aided by the matchmaker saint, single girls perform rituals to help them find a husband
Take advantage of picturesque beaches before schools break up, see Cornish gardens in full bloom, or visit one of countless festivals or fÃªtes. Long days, good weather and pre-season quietness rule
Perfect for al fresco dining and picnics in the park, longer, warmer days and pleasant evenings bring the city to life. Try an outdoor cinema, pop-up bar or paddle in the Diana Memorial Fountain
Temps are high and continually rising through the month. Crystal clear blue seas, perpetually sunny beaches, fresh white buildings and fine wines mean the best of Greece is on offer in abundance
