Visiting Sorrento in February

February in Sorrento is when the city is most quiet, when many locals who work in tourism leave on holiday themselves before the next tourist season begins. Hotels and restaurants are closed, and many businesses do renovation work to prepare for the spring opening just around the corner.

The Weather in February

Cold wind and rain: this is what you'll find most days in February, when the coast is at its winter peak and rough seas mean that ferries to the islands are suspended. That said, the first signs of spring are in the air, with days that stretch a bit longer and mimosa trees in full bloom.

  • Average high temperature (in Celsius): 14° C
  • Average low temperature (in Celsius): 9° C
  • Chance of rain: 30%
  • Chance of clouds: 46%
  • Average sea temperature (in Celsius): 14° C
  • Average daylight hours: 10

What to Do in February in Sorrento

There are very few tourists in February in Sorrento, so you can have a more authentic experience if you decide to come in this month when you'll find only locals out and about. The only restaurants that are open are those popular with locals, hotels and B&Bs offer great prices, and you can get around the coastline without having to deal with summer crowds.

Day trips from Sorrento

Here are some suggestions for what to do when it rains.

If the forecast looks good, you can always take a day trip to Capri or Positano:
