Visiting Sorrento in March

Sorrento starts to come out of its winter slumber in March, with hotels and restaurants opening back up for the tourist season and the first groups of visitors arriving on the coast. The weather is still unpredictable, but the days are longer, temperatures higher, and rain showers fewer. In the second half of the month, tours to Capri, the Amalfi Coast, and Pompeii start up again.

The Weather in March in Sorrento

The weather is variable in March around Sorrento: there can be alternate days of rain and clear skies (or both in a single day), and it is often chilly. If you are planning to visit Sorrento during this month, be sure to pack clothes you can layer and a waterproof jacket.

  • Average high temperature (in Celsius): 16° C
  • Average low temperature (in Celsius): 10° C
  • Chance of rain: 27%
  • Chance of clouds: 45%
  • Average sea temperature (in Celsius): 14° C
  • Average daylight hours: 11.3

What to Do in March

Tours from Sorrento to Capri, the Amalfi Coast, and Pompeii pick back up in March, so consider a day trip!

Book a tour from Sorrento

March is an ideal time of year to visit the archaeological site of Pompeii, before the hot summer days make the ruins uncomfortable to tour during midday. You can reach Pompeii and Herculaneum easily from Sorrento: take the Circumvesuviana train that stops near the archaeological park.

Visiting Pompeii and Herculaneum

We suggest choosing one of the two sites to tour, and then heading up to the crater on Mount Vesuvius.

March Events in Sorrento

If Easter falls in late March, you can see one of the traditional Easter processions that have been held for centuries on the Sorrentine Peninsula, a deeply beloved event on the coast.

There are about 30 processions that take place along the streets of the town on Holy Thursday and Good Friday.
