Capri in February

Carnival festivities and the beauty of the island in winter

Capri in February

There is a saying in Italian: February is brief and bitter. Indeed, as one of the coldest and wettest months of the year, with choppy seas and winter gales, February may not be your first choice for a visit to Capri.

That said, the days are already are a bit longer during this month, the mimosa trees are in full bloom, and when the un peeks out from behind the winter clouds, you can smell spring in the air.
Islanders traditionally leave on holiday during this time of year, setting out for warmer climes to relax before the high season on Capri begins and it is difficult to get away.

  • 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

Things to Do on Capri and the Coast in February

On the 14th of February, instead of Saint Valentine, Sorrento celebrates Sant’Antonino, the town's patron saint. In the city center there is an open-air market and a statue of the saint is held aloft during the traditional procession. During the Carnival period, the streets are full of children in costume and outdoor festivities with parade floats and games are held. You can also sample le chiacchiere, a traditional fried sweet made only during this time of year.

February is also an ideal month to visit Naples and the archaeological sites of Pompeii and Herculaneum:
