Naples has a season, it runs from December to April, although the height of the season is January to March. During this time Naples comes alive with a huge influx of vacationers, snowbirds, visiting from the cold frozen north.
So, if you're considering a second home, and you're going to visit Naples during the off-season months, then think about renting it out, either for the season or out of season.
