We usually vacation in Europe in May/June. Due to work in 2012 my only vacation window is 3 weeks in January and February. . Obviousy, the weather will be colder and the daylight shorter but would it severely interfere with time in Southern Italy - Amalfi Coast, Capri, Sorrento, Naples, potentially Sicily and the other first timer spots? Would the majority of restaurants, shops be closed in Capri and Amalfi Coast? Would the weather be miserable? I realize this is a very broad question but this is the very beginning of my planning and I would appreciate some input before I go further especially from people who have done these areas during January and February. Thanks.
