The city benefits from dry, warm weather and longer days from late spring to early autumn. July and August are Florence’s hottest months, with highs often approaching the mid 30°Cs.

Winters can be colder and wetter, with the occasional chance of snow. However, it’s a wonderful time to visit, with fewer crowds to contend with and much of the city transformed for the festive period.

Reasons to visit Florence

Delectable dishes

Take a flight to Florence and discover some of the best cuisine Italy has to offer. Its beauty may often lie in its simplicity, but that doesn’t mean the chefs of Tuscany can’t be creative – as Florence’s array of Michelin-starred kitchens demonstrates.

Expect dishes packed with fragrant truffles, freshly made pasta and game meat. Enoteca Pinchiorri – one of Italy’s select band of three Michelin-starred restaurants – is a must-visit for those who want to experience a style of cooking which celebrates traditional Tuscan flavours. Only the finest ingredients from wider Italy and around the world are used here.

Astounding artworks

The Tuscan capital is so rich in culture that you’ll be astounded by how much there is to see. The Uffizi Gallery is one of the best reasons to come here, with its acclaimed collection of art by Botticelli, Michelangelo, Raphael and Leonardo da Vinci.

Few places can beat Florence’s abundance of Renaissance architecture, so it’s little surprise that its historic centre has been recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Elegant buildings from the 15th and 16th centuries adorn the city skyline, along with landmarks such as the Museo dell’Opera del Duomo, Palazzo Vecchio and Accademia Gallery Museum.

Sights of the countryside

Rolling hills, expansive vineyards and cypress tree-lined roads make Tuscany one of the most beautiful regions in Europe. Whether it’s the dramatic mountain ranges and forests of the north or bijou islets dotted along the south coast, there’s always something to see in this idyllic area.

Escape to an untouched realm of golden wheat fields, fragrant olive groves and hilltop villages which exude medieval charm. Visit the nearby cities of Pisa and Bologna, or take a trip to the Chianti area to marvel at rolling vineyards.
