What to Do in October
Temperatures are warm enough in October to make any day trip or excursion along the coast a pleasure, including the archaeological ruins in Pompeii and Herculaneum that can be uncomfortably hot in the summer months.
This is also the perfect month for walking and hiking, but be sure to check the time the sun sets each day so you are not caught out on the trails after nightfall!
On sunny days, you can also relax on the beach and have lunch at one of the many waterfront restaurants.
