Best time to visit Naples

Naples experiences a beautiful Mediterranean climate which means that the weather is almost always very lovely. The best times to visit would have to be over spring (March to May) and autumn (September and October) as this is when you will have missed most of the peak season tourists and the temperature is on average about 23°C. In the peak of tourist season, August, many small business owners also tend to close up shop in Naples, allowing for more tourists than locals in the city. Though the winter months are generally off peak season, Italy as a whole tends to get very busy as the country is full of tourists visiting the Vatican in Rome and its surrounding cities. Hotel and flight prices can become quite pricey.

Naples is home to the most mouth-watering oven-baked pizzas in Italy, and that isn’t even the best thing about it! The city is a buzz of chilled, laid-back activities and many amazing sites to see, so make sure that you plan on staying for at least a few days to fully appreciate everything in this Italian gem.
