Trapani, Sicily, a warm Mediterranean climate the whole year round

Learning Italian in Trapani in Sicily, where the sun shines throughout the year

Many foreigners looking for an Italian school in Italy are also looking for sunshine... The Bel Paese's nice weather also helps when learning the Italian language where it's spoken! In Southern Italy the sun always shines, and Western Sicily is the sunniest area of all, with more than 2600 hours of sunshine per year (with an average of over 7 daily hours of sunshine!)

The Winter in Trapani is mild: it is the only area in Italy with an average temperature over 12°C (53°F) in January, while the national average is about 5-6°C (41/43°F)! Trapani is an ideal destination in the off season, in particular for private Italian classes in Italy
The warm spring in Sicily is a pleasure for the senses: in April and May, walking across the Reserve of Zingaro or around the Egadi Islands or on Mount Erice means to enjoy colours and scents you have never experienced before. Spring is the ideal season for a school trip to Trapani, in particular a homestay language vacation.

Between May and June few rainy days are the prelude to the summer season, when the weather is hot but softened by the sea and the wind: in Trapani heat is not suffocating, thanks to the sea breeze that blows from the sea. In July and August the average temperature is about 30°C (86°F) and the sun shines from daybreak to sunset.

In Trapani is possible to swim the whole year round: the sea water temperature is never below 16°C (60°F), in spring and autumn is around 20-22°C (68-72°F) and in the summer it is above 25°C (77°F).

Finally, the fall in Trapani is another wonderful season: the weather is still warm, on some days even hot, it rains a bit, the sea water is still lukewarm and there are not too many tourists around. Autumn is the ideal period to attend an over-50 Italian course by the sea!

Dicono di noi...

I have taken courses here every summer since 2008, and I can strongly recommend it for the combination of good teaching and a friendly informal atmosphere. Trapani is an absorbing city in itself - rewarding exploration year after year with the discovery of new things, while there are many other places in western Sicily close enough to explore during afternoons and weekends. And there are beaches - within walking distance in Trapani, and further afield - and ferries to the Egadi islands.
