Weather in Florence

Best time to visit

Spring and autumn are the best time to visit, avoiding the heat and the queues and capitalising on the soft light and less crowds. It is best for visitors to avoid the peak summer months of July and August, when the weather can be unbearably sticky and the prospect of trailing around museums becomes unappealing. Average temperatures in July hover around 35°C (95°F). Early autumn, when the countryside glows with mellow fruitfulness, is the best time to visit, avoiding the heat and the queues and capitalising on the soft light, empty streets and the abundance of wild mushrooms and just-pressed olive oil. If you venture to the city in winter, January temperatures are on average around 5°C (41°F). Annual rainfall is 640mm (25 inches).

So if a day is forecast to be sunny with the possibility of a brief shower, then we will see a sunny or partly cloudy symbol rather than a rain cloud.
