A tourist who wants to spend his vacation sunbathing will not hurt to go to the land where the sun shines most of the year. And the clouds do not interfere.
In this country, the sun shines tenderly and cheerfully, warming everyone who lives here permanently or comes to rest with its rays. Athens, Thessaloniki and Alexandroupoli can pamper their guests with 308 days of sunshine a year. The sun simply floods the surroundings and fills every cell of the tourist with its warmth.
Despite such an abundance of clear sunny days, these cities are not leaders in this indicator. Even in Europe there are sunnier cities.
The sunniest city in Europe
There are enough cities in Europe that could compete for the title of the sunniest. Rome, Madrid, Valencia, they are all filled with sunshine throughout most of the year. But there is a town that receives much more sunlight. It is located in the south of Italy and is called Foggia.
330 days in the sun is quite normal for this city. Therefore, Foggia is the most suitable place for all sunbathers.
Israel is a place for a warm rest
There is another sunny spot in the east of the Mediterranean Sea. The country with the largest number of holy sites and monuments rivals the Italian record holder. Tel Aviv, Haifa and Eilat will offer their guests over 330 days of sunshine per year.
In addition, the latter, among other things, is a wonderful resort on the Red Sea coast. And what could be better than the sun, sea and sandy beach for a lover of sunny holidays.
The sunniest cities
All these cities and countries occupy only the lower positions in the rankings of cities with the highest number of sunny days per year. The championship belongs to the American cities, which are literally immersed in the sun.
The cities of Phoenix and Yuma are the sunniest in the world. Both of these cities are located in the state of Arizona, in the United States. Each of them has an indicator equal to almost a year of sunlight. Daylight hours here lasts more than 11 hours and it is not surprising that the climate in these places is characterized by aridity.
The sun has been shining here for more than 350 days and therefore tanning lovers should not be too zealous with their hobby. There is enough sun to get a good tan, and if you do not follow the safety rules, you can get a serious burn.
So, while passing through the record-breaking cities, you need to remember that the sun is fraught with not only warmth and affection, but also great deceit.
