They're both good months to visit as the weather is fine. The only difference would be that in May there's more light later in the evening.
Late May or early-mid September are both equally good

If you plan on swimming, september is nicer as the Mediterranee water is just perfect.
Otherwise, both months are great.

We went in mid-May this year and it was great! The weather wasn't too warm and the airfare was lower because it's technically off season.
