The best time to visit the Amalfi Coast is in May or September. It’s at its most enjoyable during these months — expect beautiful weather and lots of activities, without the summer crowds. Temperatures normally sit around 68F to 77F.

The Amalfi Coast is less busy from November to March. However, restaurants and hotels in the smaller towns may shut down and many of the ferries and hydrofoils don’t run during this period. It’s better to visit after Easter when everything re-opens again.

Month-by-month guide to traveling in the Amalfi Coast Region

Positano, Amalfi Coast

Visiting the Amalfi Coast Region in November - March

Winter isn’t a time that we particularly recommend for travelling to the Amalfi Coast. The weather can be cold and damp and many of the shops, restaurants and hotels will be closed. There will still be some options open in Naples and Sorrento and though it’s not the best time to appreciate the Amalfi Coast’s beauty, the towns can warrant a pleasant break over Christmas without any crowds.

Visiting the Amalfi Coast Region in April - May

From Easter onwards, the Amalfi Coast starts to come back to life as the temperatures warm up and hotels and shops re-open after the winter. The citrus trees are in bloom, providing wonderful sights and smells, and the number of visitors is far lower than in the summer months. We find spring is one of the best times to visit the region.

Events & Festivals

  • Beginning in April, the Ravello Concert Society holds concerts featuring a variety of genres all through the summer until October.
