1) When is the best time to travel to the Amalfi Coast? FROM APRIL TO JUNE
Contrary to what many think, the best time to go to the Amalfi Coast is not the month of August. Because? Because the cities are CROWDED, PACKED with people: shops, restaurants, monuments, museums, squares, bars. Chaos! #Thereisaidit hahahahaThe best time to go to the Amalfi Coast is, without a doubt, the period from April to June. In these months it is possible to breathe in the aromas and see all the beautiful colors that only spring offers us. Flowers everywhere, scents of citrus fruits, peaceful cities. Amazing! These months are perfect for those who want to enjoy the spring sun without getting too hot or facing the cold sea. In the spring it is already possible to do dives and the days are delicious! In addition to escaping the rain, as it almost never rains. It is worth remembering that almost everything works normally, as hotels and restaurants begin to prepare themselves to receive tourists in the summer.
2) What is the best time to travel to the Amalfi Coast? SPECIALLY IN MAY AND JUNE
In May and June it is even better, as the temperature is already rising and it is possible to spend the whole day on the beach! And yet the cities remain calm, although they start to fill up a little more, but nothing absurd.
We arrived in July and August: the worst months to go to the Amalfi Coast! Is it not good? Amalfi Coast is always good, but in those specific months it gets very crowded, there is traffic, public transport with frequent endless lines, waiting list in restaurants if you have not made a reservation, no parking space, the heat, sometimes , it is unbearable, in short: it is almost chaotic.
The sights are FULL and taking a photo at these places can be stressful as there is a long line! However, it is the period when there is more life in the cities of the Amalfi Coast: there are shows, special summer programs and many interesting things on the streets, so, it’s up to you: if you are in the ‘I’m on vacation, I don’t care about the uproar’ team; great! If you are in the ‘I don’t like the mess!’ team, then think twice!
I’m not trying to disturb anyone’s trip, take it easy! Hahaha… Despite the agglomeration, a tip for those who want to enjoy a few days in solitude by the sea: opt for the more distant beaches, those where you have access only by the sea. Who does not give up spending the whole day on the beach: go early, but when I say early, I mean early, around 7:00 am, as they get CROWDED in a matter of minutes! Find out here The opening hours of restaurants in Italy!
- Make a reservation for dinner for the entire period you are there if you are traveling between July and August! In restaurants, customers with reservations, of course, have priority; some restaurants only serve by reservation (mainly at dinner) and there is often a kilometer line and you may end up returning to the hotel without dinner. You better not risk it! Here How to book a restaurant in Italy?
3) What is the best time to travel to the Amalfi Coast? IN WINTER – BETWEEN THE MONTHS FROM DECEMBER TO FEBRUARY
If you are passionate about winter: you can also go to the Amalfi Coast in winter too! Between December and February, despite the cold, cities have a basic structure in operation. Important: remember to make a reservation! Many places don’t work, O.K.?! It’s normal! Don’t be alarmed if you find some ‘chiusi’ (closed) places. The monuments open normally, but at different times, find out on the official website not to find them closed! Discover here the Romantic Restaurants on the Amalfi Coast!
ATTENTION WITH THE MONTH OF NOVEMBER!
- It is the rainiest month in Italy and the rains can be torrential, even in coastal cities! Watch out for the tide too: it rises VERY fast! DO NOT STAY ON THE BEACH IF IT STARTS TO RAIN! NEVER, ON NO ACCOUNT! This warning is very important folks: it can be extremely dangerous! If you do not know the roads in the region, know that they are very narrow, full of downhill curves, so BE CAREFUL and drive with A LOT of attention! You can’t be too careful!
