Capri in January

A unique way to experience the island

Capri in January

To be honest, if we were to choose the worst month in which to visit Capri and the Amalfi Coast, it would have to be January. After the Epiphany holiday on the 6th, most hotels and restaurants on the island and coast close for the season, only to reopen at Easter.

In addition, January is the coldest month of the year, with frequent grey, rainy days.

  • Average high temperature (in Celsius): 15° C
  • Average low temperature (in Celsius): 10° C
  • Chance of rain: 30%
  • Chance of clouds: 50%
  • Average sea temperature (in Celsius): 15° C
  • Average daylight hours: 9

But there are also advantages to choosing this month to holiday on the island and coast: prices are definitely at the lowest during the year, and you won't encounter crowds or long lines. You can visit Pompeii and Herculaneum in peace, without having to deal with the hot summer sun on large tour groups, and you'll have the island of Capri virtually to yourself and can take advantage of discount shopping in the boutiques in Sorrento. January is also a great time to take a day trip to Naples and visit the museums and monuments.

Here are some tips for visiting Capri and the Amalfi Coast in winter:

Where to Stay

Choose Sorrento for your base, since businesses are open all year round.
This is the month in which you should book your summer vacation to have the widest choice of hotels!
