When to go to the Amalfi Coast
The high season, which lasts from mid-June through August, invites the biggest crowds, highest prices, and hottest weather. May and September are much more pleasant on every front. Much of the coast—including most hotels and restaurants—shuts down from mid- to late October until just before Easter. You can still enjoy a vacation here in the off-season (not to mention low rates on those hotels that do stay open), but dining choices are more limited and you may find it lonely—the summer crowds can be bad, but the half-abandoned ghost towns in winter can be worse, especially on cold, blustery days.
