The Mediterranean climate can still be unpredictable at this time of the year and it’s not uncommon to see unseasonably hot or cool days at this time of the year.

The weather may not be warm enough for a beach holiday yet, but it is an ideal time to visit the historic town if you’re interested in a cultural trip with plenty of sightseeing. In May, you’ll be able to avoid both the sweltering heat of summer and the crowds of tourists it tends to attract.
