South Italy

Hiking in the South of Italy

Best Time to Visit Naples Italy

Shoulder Seasons: March-May & October-November

For the best conditions to really enjoy the south of Italy avoid heavily touristed summer and winter months.  Spring and Autumn have lovely dry temperatures and everything is open.

Best Farm Stay for Peace and Relaxation

On a Budget?

💲Going budget and have an SUV or car?  It’s completely legal to sleep in your car (but only one night in each place) in a parking lot.  Make it comfortable with a comfy car air mattress.


Don’t be like me and get eye pre-cancer, protect your eyes from the damage inflicted by the sun with cat 3-4 sunglasses.
