It will be no surprise that Sorrento’s summer months attract the crowds. It’s not hard to see why, with temperatures reaching 30 degrees – ideal for enjoying its lovely marina and lively al-fresco dining scene. Availability in the town can be limited in the summer months, so we advise booking early. Spring and autumn are equally as lovely, as the temperature cools down and the crowds thin out.
