The Amalfi Coast: When is the best time to visit?
Honeymoons. Honeymooning. Honeymooners.
Let’s talk about some of the most popular honeymoon spots and when is the best time to visit.
Declared a UNESCO Heritage Area in 1997, due to its natural beauty and historic significance, this 50 kilometre stretch of idyllic Italian coastline has been the destination of choice for decades of honeymooners. The Amalfi Coast consists of thirteen stunning villages and towns dotted along the edge of the Mediterranean Sea.
Why do couples choose the Amalfi Coast?
The southern Italian coastal area of the Amalfi Coast offers visitors scenic landscapes, colourful towns built into the cliff edges, flavourful local cuisine and picture perfect pristine beaches.
Fly into Naples and spend a week hopping from town to town. The Amalfi Coast strikes the perfect balance between a relaxing beachside getaway and a road trip adventure: plan your journey, hire a car and discover the towns of Positano, Amalfi or Ravello, and the smaller villages in between.
A honeymoon on the Amalfi Coast can be as jam-packed or as relaxed as you would like. Get a boat to Capri and visit the famous Blue Grotto, rent a Vespa to discover more of the area, wander The Lemon Path, spend an afternoon on the beach and enjoy Aperol Spritz sundowners with scenic views.
But, when is the best time to visit?
May/June and September
The Amalfi Coast can get very crowded, as the area is not only popular with foreign tourists, but is also a popular summer holiday location for Italians. So, with this in mind, avoid the major summer crowds that visit the Amalfi Coast that descend on the area throughout the months of July and August, it is recommended to visit during the months of May/June and September.
During May, June and September, visitors can expect dry weather with temperatures of between 22 and 27 degrees.
By avoiding peak summer tourism months, you should also be able to get relatively decent prices for flights and accommodation.
