Weather in Florence

The weather is Florence is generally wonderful but visitors should be aware that we do get rain in Florence – and boy when it rains it really pours – so a some form of weather proof clothing is a sensible idea!

Also Florence is subject to extremes of heat – August is very hot and humid so most of the locals head for the hills or the seaside – I generally take my August visitors to Cinque Terre on the coast to escape the City heat.

Equally in January it can be bitterly cold. This is quite nice as long as you wrap up against it – or are prepared to invest in a new leather coat as another souvenir of your holiday!
