South Italy would be an ideal place to go on holiday all year if it were not that many places of hospitality, bars and restaurants close for fear of not seeing much sun … but the real winter is another thing!
If you want to plan your holidays, without a doubt the best time for walking the Amalfi Coast is from April to June, when the spring flowers are in bloom, the weather is quite hot, and the sea allows the first dives of the season.
Traveling in the late spring or early summer, you will not have the tourist crush in July and August and the overly hot temperatures later in the year.
Sleeping villages come back to life after winter, people come back to the streets, cafes and restaurants reopen their doors to let the sun in, and along the winding streets, the scent of citrus and jasmine charms the first visitors of the season.
The tourist season officially begins from Easter weekend and runs through October: during May and June prices are generally lower than during July and August and also in the first months of autumn, when the temperatures are still mild and the majority of tourists have left.
