If you are planning a visit to Naples, you may want to know what to do about the weather. Technically, there is nothing that can be done about the weather, but you can at least try to plan your trip in such a way that the weather is most pleasant for you. What constitutes pleasant weather depends entirely on your own needs and desires.
On average, Naples doesn’t experience any extreme colds, with the coldest months usually remaining just above freezing point. However, Naples certainly does know extreme heat, making the city unsuitable for people who find heat difficult to cope with.
Some of the statistics tell us that July is the hottest month in Naples and January the coldest. However, July is also the wettest months, with December being the driest.

If you like the sunshine, the best months to visit are between May and September, but do remember that there is frequent rainfall in July. The cooler months are between December and March. As stated earlier, it never gets really cold in Naples. The lowest ever recorded temperature is relatively mild for other countries in Europe, where temperatures as low as -14 degrees Celsius are frequently recorded, even in central European countries such as France and Austria. The temperatures obviously drop far lower in the more Nordic countries.
In terms of rainfall, as stated, July is the wettest month in Naples. When it doesn’t rain, humidity is very high and this can be very uncomfortable. For people who suffer from asthma, as visit during this month may not be recommended in other words.
