Is August a good time to visit the Amalfi Coast?
It can be but before deciding you should understand how is the Amalfi Coast in Summer. In July and August in fact the Amalfi Coast is very crowded and the weather is very hot. These aren’t the best month for the Amalfi Coast especially if you want to include places such as Herculaneum or Pompeii on your trip.

The Amalfi Coast in winter
The winter isn’t the best time to visit Amalfi Coast. As we’ve already explained in the post “Amalfi Coast Towns” the touristic season finishes on the first weekend of November. The result is that after this weekend many hotels and restaurants are closed.
As is it true that winter is not the best period of the year to visit the Amalfi Coast is also true that you can have a great vacation. Many places are closed but all the Amalfi Coast towns are not crowded as in other periods of the year and your vacation is more relaxing.
If you visit the Amalfi Coast in winter it’s better you stay in Sorrento. It’s one of the biggest Amalfi Coast towns and it’s the town less affected by the touristic seasons. In this way you can have all the services you need and if you want to visit the other town during the day.
