Weather in Florence

Best time to visit

To avoid the heat and the queues, it’s best to visit Florence in spring and autumn. During the peak summer months of July and August, 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), but if you wait for autumn, the countryside glows with an abundance of wild mushrooms and just-pressed olive oil. If you venture to the city in winter, January temperatures average around 5°C (41°F).
