Capri in April

What to see and do on Capri in April

Capri in April

April ushers in Capri's high season, when the island's bars, restaurants, and hotels open back up for the season and visitors are welcomed with open arms!

Weather in April

Spring is well underway, and the average temperatures are much warmer, though it can still be quite cool in the summer and it often rains. This is the best time of year to hike or walk the island's many trails and visit the archaeological sites. It's still a bit early to swim, but on sunny days you can relax at the beach; the beach clubs on the island reopen for the season mid-month.

  • Average high temperature (in Celsius): 19° C
  • Average low temperature (in Celsius): 13° C
  • Chance of rain: 25%
  • Chance of clouds: 42%
  • Average sea temperature (in Celsius): 16° C
  • Average daylight hours: 13

What to Pack in April

The weather is still quite variable in April, so it's best to dress in layers with jeans, a shirt with a sweatshirt or jumper over it, and a waterproof jacket.

What to Do on Capri in April

Walks and hikes: April is the perfect month to explore the many trails that crisscross the island of Capri and the Amalfi Coast. Temperatures during the day are mild and the countryside is in full bloom. You should definitely plan to visit Cetrella, a small valley on the slopes of Mount Solaro that is covered in wild flowers during this season.

Archaeological sites: The weather is also ideal for visiting the nearby archaeological sites like Pompeii, Herculaneum, and Tiberius' villas.

Boat tours: This is the first month in which you can start going out on the water, though the sea is still too cold to swim (except for the truly adventurous!). This is the perfect time of year for a boat tour around the island of Capri.

Our 3 Favorite Things to Do in April

  • Walk to the Migliera in Anacapri and have lunch under the pergola at Ristorante da Gelsomina
  • Hike the Sentiero degli Dei (Path of the Gods) and have lunch at La Tagliata in Nocelle
  • Savor the first gelato of the season from Buonocore on Capri while walking along Via Camerelle

From the 1st of April, ferries begin to run between the towns on the Amalfi Coast and Capri, so it's easier to get around!

Festivities and Events

During Easter week, traditional religious processions are held by hooded fraternities along with reenactments of the Passion of Christ in towns along the Sorrrentine Peninsula.

The 25th of April is a national holiday in Itay, so prices may be higher and the island may be more crowded near this date.
