Anyone in Italy now experiencing the heat wave and fires?

Would love an update on heat wave and fires in Italy. Heading there in a week (hopefully) and wondered how it might be affecting travel. Thanks for your help!

I have a friend near Pescara and she encountered a fire during a walk in Pineta Dannunziana yesterday.

New reports of fire outbreaks in Calabria, not far from the city of Reggio Calabria. Two farmers died while they were trying to save their Olive Trees.

Dario,
Do you know how hot and humid it is in Venice right now? I will be there 8/25-9/03. Soon, in other words.

I can't speak for the fires but it's pretty hot in Ischia right now. Not unbearable but not ideal for just wandering aimlessly either.

Thanks, Dario. I also looked up the two week forecast for Venice on timeanddate.com.
