Average Temp in the Dolomites in Early July

We will be in Castelrotto for 3 days in July. Would anyone out there be able to share what their experience has been temp-wise at this time of the year? (I looked for the online averages, but couldn't find a website.) How cool is it at night and how warm is it in the day? Thanks.

Hello wren,

I didn't answer sooner because my experience there is in August, not July. But it should be similar, although Augsut is probably slightly warmer. We had mostly warm sunny days (20 to 25 degrees) and coolish evenings (12 to 15 degrees). But near the mountains, it can be cool and/or rainy any day. so you should be prepared.

Hello Enzian, Thanks for the info. Sounds like delightful weather to me! From what you say, it does sound like we should have a lightweight jacket for the mountains.

Wren,we will be staying in Ortisei (right next to Castelrotto) for the last 3 nights in June. You and I have previously corresponded about that B&B in Provence, so I just wanted to say hello. I guess we'll miss you by a few days.

I would also be interested in temperature information if anyone can be specific. We are assuming that elevation will make a lot of difference, and we just hope it's relatively cool when we are there.

jd dallas, I am with you on the cool weather! I would much rather be too chilly than too warm!

Wren/JD - Elevation makes a big difference - but there can also be a contrast between different areas of the Dolomites - and even between neighbouring valleys.

Bolzano can be one of the hottest places in Italy in summer, with temperatures to compare with Rome or Palermo (35C +)

Castelrotto and Ortisei are both several hundred metres higher, so considerably cooler.

I've been there in June when there's been 10C difference between Val Gardena and Val Badia - glorious sunshine in one valley, thick cloud and drizzle in the other ...

It really pays to get the weather forecast each day, find out where the good weather is, and plan your excursions accordingly.

Hope this helps ...

Steve
