Weather in Florence

Florence's climate

Florence lies at the feet of the Tuscan-Emilian Apennines, in a hollow not far above sea level. It is partially surrounded by splendid hills, while a broad plain opens out to the west, through which the River Arno flows. The climate is continental, with fairly cold winters and relatively high humidity, which also makes itself felt in July and August, the hottest months, when many Florentines head out into the nearby hills to cool off. Average annual rainfall is 830 mm.For general information and statistics about Florenceā€™s climate, visit the web site of the La.M.M.A. bed and breakfast Florence
