Visiting the Amalfi Coast in March

March on the Amalfi Coast means a mix of the first balmy days of spring and the last blustery days of winter, with sun and rain (often in the same afternoon) and the cheerful bustle of the coastal towns opening up for the season.

Most hotels and restaurants in Positano and Amalfi close or the winter, reopening at Easter; many businesses along the coast take advantage of the month of March to do renovation work or generally ready themselves for the summer crowds. Locals say that the scent of March isn't only the flowering mimosa and orange trees, but the smell of fresh paint!

The Weather in Positano in March

Temperatures are milder and the days are longer in March, making it an ideal climate for taking walks and visiting the towns along the coast, despite the frequent rain showers. The sea is still too cold to swim, however!

  • Average high temperature (in Celsius): 16° C
  • Average low temperature (in Celsius): 10° C
  • Chance of rain: 27%
  • Chance of clouds: 45%
  • Average sea temperature (in Celsius): 14° C
  • Average daylight hours: 11.30

March offers perfect weather for heading out on the coast's hiking trails:

What to Pack

The unpredictable weather in March along the coast calls for dressing in layers, and be sure to bring a rain jacket and a pair of shoes that don't get slippery when the streets are wet.

Where to Stay in March

The best place to choose a hotel in March is Sorrento, given the ease of transportation to Capri, Pompeii, and the Amalfi Coast. If you want to spend your time relaxing rather than exploring each day, choose a hotel in Positano (though many may still be closed). It's also easy to drive along the coast in March, as the traffic is still light making the narrow, winding road easier to navigate.
