Weather Overview for Sorrento

As Sorrento enjoys a typical Mediterranean climate, summer temperatures really start in May, when the average daily maximum sits at 22°C and the minimum falls to a comfortable 12°C. By June, summer is in full swing, with the average maximum hitting 27°C before rising to 29°C in July and August. Minimums in summer range from about 15°C to 18°C daily. This is also the driest time of the year.

Sorrento lies in the picturesque Campania region on the Amalfi coast of southern Italy. While it is a small town, with only 16,500 residents, it is a very popular tourist destination.

Sorrento, is near to Pompeii and Mount Vesuvius and to many other quaint seaside holiday spots such as the small town of San Angelo. It is easily accessible from Naples and Positano.

One of the best time times to visit Sorrento is the springtime, as not only are temperatures pleasant, but the crowds on the beach are thinner.

Summer is, of course, the most popular season and it is easy to see why. Temperatures reach into the high 20’s and low 30’s, but its coastal location means the heat is moderated by refreshing sea breezes. Prices are higher in the high season and resorts are usually packed out. It is also when Sorrento hosts a music festival that is attended by tourists and locals alike. If you prefer a lively atmosphere in your bars and cafes then this is the season for you.

Precipitation is at its lowest in July, which only sees 25 mm of rain. It begins to pick up slightly around the end of August before reaching 81mm in September. Throughout the winter months Sorrento sees in excess of 100mm of rainfall each month, with November generally being wettest.

Winters are mild and rarely get extremely cold. The average minimum, which will occur at night time, is 3°C to 4°C but daily maximums sit at a pleasant 12°C to 13°C. January is the coldest month. While quite cold, winter is a particularly good time to visit if you want to explore the surrounding areas.

 

Pompeii and its sister city of Herculaneum were completely buried on August 24 79AD when the nearby volcano Mount Vesuvius erupted, under masses of lava and volcanic ash, preserving buildings and bodies in incredible detail. Pompeii can get excruciatingly hot in the peak of summer and wandering the stone streets which absorb the heat can be some what of a challenge. If you want to spend a good day exploring Pompeii then winter or spring are excellent times to visit.
