When to Visit the Amalfi Coast

It's not always possible to dictate your own travel schedule and decide when you can take vacation time to visit the Amalfi Coast in Italy.
But given the choice, without a doubt the best time to see the Amalfi Coast is from April to June, when the spring flowers are in bloom, the weather is just warm enough, and the temperature of the Mediterranean allows for the first dips of the season.
By choosing late spring or early summer, you can also avoid the tourist crush of July and August and the oppressive temperatures later in the year.

Spring (Easter thru May)

Spring on the Amalfi Coast is this stretch of Italian coastline's golden season, as the sleepy villages come out of their winter hibernation, the cafés and restaurants throw open their doors to the sunlight, and along the twisting, narrow lanes, the scent of orange blossoms and jasmine captivates the first visitors of the season.

The tourist season officially begins at Easter and runs through the month of September, but during May and June prices are generally lower than during July and August.

May is by far the best month to visit the Amalfi Coast, with perfect temperatures, lush blooms, and very few tourists.

July and August

If you love local festivals and nightlife, remember that most events take place on the coast during the months of July and August.
The calendar of concerts and festivals is particularly full during these two months, which is also when most of the international jet-set anchor their yachts off the Amalfi Coast and can be seen in the most glamorous restaurants and clubs onshore, including "Music On the Rocks" in Positano and "Africana" in Praiano.

Even during these crowded months, you can enjoy the coast in peace and solitude by hiring a private boat to explore the hidden coves and beaches along the Amalfi Coast or by hiking the trails along the mountain slopes above the coast, far from the tourist crush.

September

The month of September is also an excellent time to visit the Amalfi Coast, while the temperatures are still mild and the lion's share of tourists have left.

Winter (Nov to Easter)

During the winter, the Amalfi Coast has the mysterious air of the sea during the coldest months, with dramatic waves washing against the shore with such force that the spray reaches the balconies of the cliffside homes, and the villages empty out almost completely.

Though the coast has a particularly dramatic feel during these months, remember than many cafés and restaurants will be closed, and that you will probably encounter wet weather.
