Average time to visit

Florence is an exciting place to visit at any time of the year, and most attractions are open all year round. The best time to visit Florence is in May, early June, late September and October. Days during those months are usually warm, and quite long. July and August are hot and humid with many tourists. Since most Italians leave their hot cities in the summer, many restaurants are closed in Florence.

Winter can get cold, particularly January but it is quiet. Temperatures are more favourable in the spring and autumn months.

Hotel Lungarno is perfect for guests looking to stay in a quieter location  but still within an easy walk of everything Florence has to offer. I loved spending time in the lounge with its picture windows right on to the Arno river and Ponte Vecchio at the end of a day exploring. Recently renovated, the hotel feels fresh and welcoming and is definitely one of my top choices for a stay in the city.
