When to Go
High seasons in Naples are the so-called shoulder seasons elsewhere—April–June and September–October. Book well in advance if visiting then. Christmas in Naples is also a good time to experience the city, Nativity scenes being a Neapolitan specialty. From July into September the entire area surrounding Naples—including the Amalfi Coast and Capri—fills up with local Italian holidaymakers, pushing up prices. Paradoxically, during August Naples empties, good for visitors except for the fact that police presence diminishes as well. With breezes coming in off the coast, summer temperatures are lower than one might think.
