Best Times to Visit Naples
The best time to visit Naples is between March and May. The sun will be out, and you'll be on the beach or the links with daytime temperatures staying in the 80s. More importantly, you'll also miss the winter price hikes. Winter is peak season because many visitors are willing to absorb the exorbitant costs for high average temps in the mid 70s. Summer is popular because of school vacation, but 90s with high humidity, even at the beach, is uncomfortable. Naples' autumn features a 10-degree slide into winter; nothing remarkable happens except for a brief decline of hotel rates and crowds.
|June-September||For four months, Naples will experience average daily highs in the 90s and about eight inches of rain per month. Bring an umbrella because the rain usually arrives in the afternoon, pours down, and then stops. Also, family traffic inflates the already high prices.|
|October-November||Fall is very short, but a great time to visit. The families are gone and the snowbirds have yet to arrive. Hotel prices will dip and so will the temperatures. Expect occasional rainstorms and temps that range from the 60s to the 80s.|
|December-February||As Naples is one of the few places where you can play golf and relax at the beach in the winter, you can understand the appeal. Peak season means waiting at restaurants, stop lights and tee boxes, and you'll still pay top dollar. Bring a jacket because the weather can get cool at night.|
Once winter breaks, the peak rates do as well. They won't plummet, but you'll still get more for your money at this time of year. Not a popular Spring Break spot, Naples is quiet and peaceful -- exactly how it should be.
