Visiting Sorrento in July

The peak of summer in Sorrento

Visiting Sorrento in July

With the arrival of July in Sorrento, summer officially begins! Hotels, restaurants, and beaches are full of travelers and locals, and the season hits its full stride.

The Weather in July

July in Sorrento is when the temperatures reach their peak: 30°C and endless sunny days. Going out to tour during the hottest midday hours can be uncomfortable, and it's a good idea to relax on the beach to stay cool, and instead tour in the early morning or late afternoon.

  • Average high temperature (in Celsius): 30° C
  • Average low temperature (in Celsius): 22° C
  • Chance of rain: 8%
  • Chance of clouds: 10%
  • Average sea temperature (in Celsius): 25° C
  • Average daylight hours: 14.3

What to Do in Sorrento in July

It's a good idea to plan ahead if visiting Sorrento in July, as hotels, tours, restaurants, and boats can be booked up well in advance.

Boat Tours

We especially recommend booking a boat tour to Capri or the Amalfi Coast this month, to be able to best enjoy the beauty of the coastline without the stress of crowds and heat.

On Capri, there can be long lines for the funicular, buses, and ferries in the midday hours that can make a July visit particularly uncomfortable, and the same applies to Positano and Amalfi if you are getting around by bus.

For small-group boat tours departing from Sorrento (with pick-up from your hotel), you can reach Capri or Positano by sea, with stops to swim and a few hours of free time on land to explore the towns before heading back to Sorrento by boat.

Beaches

Sorrento's beaches are all quite small, with beach clubs near the city center set on wooden platforms above the water. The prettiest beaches are near Massa Lubrense and Nerano, famous for its crystalline water (and delicious restaurants!)

July Events

At the end of July, Marina Grande celebrates the feast day of Sant'Anna, patron saint of sailors. There is a small market, live music, street food, and fireworks coordinated to a soundtrack.
