Sofia Vergara, 51, is a goddess in animal print swimsuit on Italian holiday

Sofia Vergara is currently lapping up the (very intense) sunshine in the Italian town of Ravello.

The 51-year-old star took to Instagram on Monday to tell her 30.3million followers that her European getaway was coming to an end and looked pretty darn sensational while she was at it.

The Modern Family actress also commented on the scorching weather that’s currently sweeping parts of Europe and guzzled water while wearing a chic animal print swimsuit.

In one post, Sofia could be seen jumping off a sunbed while holding a bottle of water.

In another, the Colombian stunner worked her best angles while working on her tan, writing: ‘Last days of vacay! Even when u r so hot I love u Ravello!!!.’

European countries are facing threat to life warnings due to scorching temperatures after an anticyclone system called Cerberus expanded northwards.

However, as Cerberus exhausts itself, Italian forecasters now expect a second heatwave – named Charon – to replace it.

This could push temperatures back up to 43°C in Rome and as high as 47°C in Sardinia, MailOnline reports.

Cerberus – named after Hades’ three-headed dog in Greek mythology – will see temperatures rise to above 45°C in Spain, Italy, Greece and Turkey by the end of the week.

The Italian islands of Sardinia and Sicily are set to bear the brunt of the unforgiving heat, with the BBC claiming temperatures could reach 48.8°C. 

Health ministry officials have issued red alert warnings for ten major cities in Italy, including Florence and Rome.

A red alert warning means the heat is so intense that it poses a health risk to the whole population – not just vulnerable groups.

Italian politician Nicola Fratoianni said: ‘We are facing an unbearable heatwave. Dying from the heat is unthinkable – we should be taking measures to avoid tragedies like this in the hottest hours of the day.’
