Best time to visit Naples
When is The Best Time to Visit Naples?
Naples' high season is during its winter months. Tourists descend on the city from December to February to take advantage of the favourable weather. It's one of the few places in Europe where you can still go to the beach at this time. Just bring a warm jacket for the evening when temperatures start to plummet.
The best time to visit Naples is after the peak winter season. From March to May, hotel rates will drop, and you'll get better value for your money. It's also a great option if you want to escape the crowds, with travellers and locals choosing other destinations for spring break.
The city's summer months (June to September) is also a busy time of year. Families descend on Naples for school holidays, driving up hotel rates and availability. The 30°C temperatures and high humidity make this time of year uncomfortable for sightseeing. Be sure to bring your water bottle with you and stay hydrated if you plan to explore the city on foot.
Another great shoulder season is October to November. The summer crowds are gone, and the winter tourists have yet to arrive. You'll find lower hotel prices and the occasional rainstorm. Pack your raincoat and some layers to stay warm as temperatures start to drop.
