Florence Italy

Florence Weather

The weather in Florence is extremely mild all year around. The temperature is absolutely perfect from late March through May and then again from September through mid- November. Florence is situated in an inland position and set in a valley, so the heat in the months of July and August can be brutal. Just a note about August, most Italians take their vacations during this month. You will be walking around the city with a lot of American and British tourists and it may not be the most authentic experience. Below is a list of the average temperatures and precipitation:
