I went here late in the spring. The weather was great. I recommend hiring some bikes to check out the sites. It's loads of fun and you don't have to fight the traffic and find a car space. The historic area is quite flat which makes riding on the wide pathways a breeze. Depending on what hotel you stay at, they may even have bikes you can use for free :)
If visiting please remember that the large mounds are tombs and not to be climbed. Be respectful and stay off them, even if you see Korean locals climbing them.
Lots of pictures and more info on my blog http://gdaykorea.blogspot.com.au/2013/05/gyeongju-city-packed-with-history.html
