The climate of Florence (Italy)
One of Italy’s most beautiful cities is Florence (Firenze). Florence is the capital of the Tuscany region. The city is situated on the banks of the river Arno. Florence is one of the most famous cultural cities in Europe because it was the birth place of the Renaissance. The historic city center is a Unesco world heritage site. The city offers many famous sights such as bridges (Ponte Vecchio), churches (Santa Maria del Fiore and the cathedral), palaces, squares and museums. The Palazzo Degli Uffizli is a palace with one of the most important museums in the world. Here you can admire paintings and sculptures from the Renaissance and Baroque. The palace was owned by the Medici family for a long time. The Galleria del’Accademica is home to the world famous statue of David by Michelangelo. The climate has mild winters and warm summers. During spring and fall heavy rainfall is not uncommon. However, this is the best period to travel here. The city offers so many sights that it is not preferable to admire them in the hot summer sun. During summer temperatures may rise up to 30 degrees Celsius.

Climate figures are very useful but don’t present a general impression of the climate and the eventual weather circumstances within a certain period. The figures don’t always reflect the chance of wintry weather, extreme heat or hurricanes. That is why we offer useful extra climate information for each month of the year:
