Visiting the Amalfi Coast in February

Cold days, choppy seas, wind, and rain. February on the Amalfi Coast doesn't sound very tempting, and is certainly isn't the ideal time of year to visit. In fact, the residents of the coastal villages themselves pack their bags for the month and head to the tropics for a bit of sun and warmth, and to relax before the season begins again and the stretch between Easter and October is non-stop work.

Visitors to Positano in February will experience a unique side of this bustling resort town, with deserted streets, shuttered shops, and restaurants and hotels being renovated for the following season. If you dream of solitary walks along the silent beach, exploring the coastal trails without another human in sight, and being able to chat with the few locals who have remained in town without being rushed, then this may be the month to consider.

The coast is especially beautiful on crisp, clear winter days when you can even sit outside in the sun for an espresso. The afternoons are stretching just a bit longer during this month, the first flowers are out in the final days, and you can smell the scent of spring just around the corner.

  • Average high temperature (in Celsius): 14° C

What To Do on the Amalfi Coast in February

If the forecast is good, February is a good month to explore the coastal walking trails before the spring crowds arrive. This is the best time of year to hike the Path of the Gods (Sentiero degli Dei), though you should stop by the Tourist Information Office to check that the path is in good shape and safe to hike, as heavy winter rains can sometimes cause mud slides and damage to the trail.

Hiking the Path of the Gods

February is also the perfect time to visit the ruins at Pompeii and Herculaneum.
