What’s the weather like in Sorrento in May?

The weather gets better in May as summer gets closer, so you’ll have rising temperatures, lots of sun and not much rain at this time. It’s still quite a bit cooler than the summer peak, making it a perfect time to visit if you’re going to explore the local area and visit places like Mount Vesuvius and Pompeii.


The average high in Sorrento is 21ºC in May, which cools to quite a cool 13ºC at night. You should bring some warmer clothes for the evenings as it can get quite chilly. The sea temperature is 18ºC, while humidity’s low. There’s 38mm of rain over ten days, and you can expect 14 hours of daylight with eight hours of sunshine each day.
