No Air Cond. in June in Amalfie??

We already have reservations in Amalfie for early June, but no air conditioning. We're from Texas--are we going to die??

Sherry,

I'm from Dallas so you would think heat no problem, right? WRONG! When we were in Italy last Summer I was extremely uncomfortable in places without air conditioning. I think the problem is that since it is hot here in Texas everything is airconditioned and we are used to it. I can tell you that we were truly miserable in the couple of hotels we stayed in that didn't have air. We opened windows but there was no circulation and lots of noise from outside. When we go back I will only stay where there is air conditioning. It will make things more pleasant .. both the trip and everyone's tempers!

Yep, pardners. We want to see Yurp but we want it to be just like Texas. Gotta have that air condishnin. If heat's a problem, why go in the middle of the summer?

First off where are you from pardner? Would you like us to slander your homestate?
Second, no we don't want Europe to be just like the US. We just would like our vacation to be pleasurable. Who wants to be hot, tired and cranky when you are spending what little vacation time you get a year on a really special trip.
Lastly, why is it on this forum when you ask a ? about your accomodations is it construed to mean you want things to
be exactly like home? Ever considered that people might just like to understand what they are paying for and make sure it fits THEIR needs and expectations... NOT YOURS.

Sheryl, thank you for your reply to me and to"Mike". I was raised in Texas by very caring people who taught me manners--as well as proper spelling. I've never seen Europe spelled "Yurp" or air conditioning spelled "condishnin"--and if we wanted Italy to be "just like Texas", we wouldn't go!! This will actually be our 4th trip, but never at this time of the year, so we have concerns. Thank you for relaying your thoughts on the heat. And Mike, this web site is to be helpful to fellow travelers--not to slander with rudeness. Learn some manners!!!!

Sherry:

I've been to the Amalfi coast during April and October, so I'm can't provide personal experience during early June (also living in Tx, & can understand your concern). BUT, as the area is on the coastline, you do have the moderating effects of the Mediterranean. I know that Romans like to depart their city during the summer to beat the heat, but I think you might be okay for the area where you're headed. Can check several weather websites to get a sense of temps during that time, but, you'll also need to weigh the humidity factor (that Dallas v. Houston thing --- which as a northern transplant, hot is hot - I wilt under 95 plus degrees no matter how low the "heat index" may seem).

And if you don't have your weather websites handy (you can check thru the major newspapers here & abroad, NY Times, Washington Post, London Times do int'l weather as well as sites devoted to the topic).

Here's 'Weather.com':
http://www.weather.com/intl/countries_index/Italy.html

And I may have to backpedal on my 'pleasant' seaside breezes theory --- closest major city that these weather sites keep stats on is usually Naples.
And today, Napoli is a very nice 71 degrees, BUT the h - factor makes it a bit on the stickier side than those numbers indicate.
