The weather is perfect in early to mid-Spring (March to April) as well as in Autumn (September to November). It may be too hot in Summer (May to August) or too cold in Winter (December to February). However, if you only have these days to do your trip, make sure you have a hat and sunscreen (for Summer) or plenty of warm clothing (for Winter).
