Amalfi Coast in August??

Jump to last reply

Hi all...I've been told that August is NOT the time to go to the Amalfi Coast (or anywhere in Italy for that matter). Too hot and humid, too crowded and hard to get around, etc. Also heard that last two weeks in August is the primary holiday time and all the locals are on the move, and many restaurants and stores could be closed.

We are planning a quick long (and romantic!) weekend getaway somewhere in Europe Aug 22-25. We were looking at the Amalfi Coast as a possibility -- until I heard all these things to consider otherwise! Should we do it? Or plan a trip to Italy at a better time of year?

Any insights would be appreciated....
Thanks!!
