July is the peak of the classic summer holidays with holiday makers packing up and heading towards checkin desks at the airports across the country. For all those that have not chosen “staycations” our editorial team have prepared a list of the hottest destinations to visit in July from Europe to beyond the Atlantic.
Sao Paulo, Brasil + 25 °C
While July translates into a proper winter in Southern hemisphere, Sao Paulo’s tropical climate still delivers nice and warm weather with average temperatures of 25 ºC. Ironically enough winter in Sao Paulo is the driest time of the year hence it’s also a very popular destination during European summer.
Gran Canaria, Spain +26.5°C
Gran Canaria is popular among European holiday makers all year-round. Even on Christmas Day air temperature rarely drops below +14°C. In July, however, it hits 26.4 ºC plus you are unlikely to see any rain. 9 hours of daylight also give plenty of time for any activities.
Rome, Italy +28 °C
With temperatures reaching an average of 28 ºC, and 9 hours of daylight Rome is the city not to be missed in July. Trevi fountain on a lovely evening after a delicious pasta dish and a glass of white wine. Its magnificent architecture, local eateries - trattorias - buzzing day and night and crafts shops will get you excited. Because of Rome’s proximity to the sea and famous Lido, you'll have a chance to enjoy yourself on the beach in between city sightseeing.
Alicante, Spain + 28 °C
One of sunniest and hottest spots in the Mediterranean during the summer season and definitely the most searched and booked destination among British holiday makers (alongside Malaga) Alicante offers all sorts of water fun, dining and family attractions.
Cannes, France + 28.5 °C

The fact that Cannes attract rich people does not mean it’s an expensive holiday destination. It certainly doesn’t have to be. You will find plenty of 3-4 stars hotels to match any taste, and if you prefer self-catering, lots to choose from as well. Great infrastructure, car hire options and popular supermarkets such as Casino, Lidl or Carrefour in close proximity to the main town areas will make you feel home rather than a stranger.
