The beaches here wouldn't look out of place in the Caribbean. June is the perfect time to visit them, as the temperatures hit that sweet spot of the early 20s - comfortable but not too hot. Food is highly regarded here - it's classical Italian with an Arabian touch - and in June the Sicilians even have a festival for the humble caper, the "Festa del Cappero". There's also a film festival in chic Taormina on the east coast, where Hollywood stars watch their films in a 2,000 year old theatre by the sea.

Hit the island of Sardinia just before the hot summer months. You can hike across the unusual mountainous landscape, find hidden coves leading to white beaches, or go scuba diving in the warm waters of the Maddalena Archipelago. Food wise, make sure you try the Sardinian speciality, Porceddu (roast sucking pig) and caschettas - a traditional pastry delicacy. In fact, the Cherry and Caschettas Festival is held in the tiny village of Belvì in June. The festival of San Giovanni Battista (St John the Baptist) on the 24th also sees processions, horse races and fireworks in villages across Sardinia.

From June, New York's "High Line" stays open until 11pm at night. Make that your evening drinking spot, and get superb views of the city thrown in for free. Alternatively, try The Museum Mile Festival, a block party on a specially pedestrianised 5th Avenue, for live music and entertainment. As part of this, nine museums in the city also offer free admission, and then there's Restaurant Week. Traditionally in June, you can try some cheapish fine-dining, New York style (think three courses for $25).
