Weather in Bologna

Even at the height of the season, tourist numbers seldom become too suffocating in Bologna but the weather is a different matter. Summer brings temperatures of 25°C-30°C (80°F-90ºF), particularly in July and August. If you prefer to avoid the heat, the best times to visit are early spring and September. Between November and February, it rains frequently and winters are distinctly chilly, although temperatures never fall below freezing.
