Best time to Visit

Good time to visit

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, when temperatures are more favourable. The best time to visit Tuscany is in the quieter part of the season, from April to June and from September to October when weather is usually good and there are fewer tourists. Rome is also best at this time of year too, as the summer months can be busy with visitors and the days can be hot.
