Florence Holidays

Florence is the capital city of the Italian region of Tuscany and of the province of Florence.

The city lies on the River Arno and is known for its history and its importance in the Middle Ages and in the Renaissance, especially for its art and architecture. A centre of medieval European trade and finance and one of the wealthiest cities of the time. Florence is considered the birthplace of the Renaissance. A turbulent political history included periods of rule by the powerful Medici family, religious and republican revolution. From 1865 to 1870 the city was also the capital of the Kingdom of Italy. Florence is often known as the “Jewel of the Renaissance”.

The historic centre of Florence attracts millions of tourists each year and was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1982. Florence is widely regarded as one of the most beautiful cities in the world, and its artistic, historic and cultural heritage and impact in the world remains to this day. The city has a major impact in music, architecture, education, cuisine, fashion, philosophy, science and religion. The historic centre of Florence contains elegant squares (piazzas), Renaissance palaces (palazzi), academies, parks, gardens, churches, monasteries, museums, art galleries and ateliers. The city has also been nominated, according to a 2007 study, as the most desirable destination for tourists in the world. 

Florence is a city known for its art and architecture which can be enjoyed all year round. The weather in Florence are not the least bit extreme, pulling in travellers from around the world year round. Here’s how each season in Florence looks like.

Florence in Spring

Spring is quite marked in Florence, you will notice the weather getting warmer, days longer and the skies clearer. It is a lovely time to explore the famous Italian Renaissance Gardens of Bobboli and Bardini and watch the Irises bloom. April and May fall in the spring season and while it is shoulder tourist season it is definitely one of the best seasons to visit Florence.

Florence in Summer

Florence experiences hot summer with temperatures soaring in the months of July and August. These are also the busiest tourist months as international travellers pour in during school vacations. These months make for the best time to grab a gelato and walk the cobbled streets of sweltering Florence. The city also hosts several summer festivals themed around dance, music and art. Despite the heat it is a lively time in Florence!

Florence in Autumn

The months of September and October are one of the best times of the year to visit Florence. It is a respite after the summer heat with spurts of rainfall. Autumn is the harvest season for grapes and olives and a visit to the villages in Tuscany is a must-do on your Florence autumn itinerary.

Florence in Winter

If you don’t enjoy the snow then Florence in winter is your go to destination. It rarely snows in the city and even if it does it’s a light snow which often turns to rain, although the past few years have been unpredictable. The temperatures do not go into minus and it’s quite bearable with the right clothing. Florence is a sight to behold during Christmas with its markets, festivities and decor, making it one of the top places to visit during Christmas.
