Visiting Sorrento in February

Winter in Sorrento: recommendations for a February visit

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
