When is the Best Time to Visit

The best time to visit is mid-April through mid-May. This is when the temperature is not too hot but rather warm and pleasant. The temperature is around 24°C (75 °F). This time is ideal for open-air dining and casual walks.

Moreover, you will enjoy the finest art and music festivals during this time and get to know the true Italian culture, tradition, and living style. Other than this, Florence in October is also worth a visit.
