What to wear
Unlike the UK Florence has fairly defined seasons. Being quite a close knit city it can have stifling summers but when winter comes around you can expect to see snow covered ground. This being the case it’s important to plan your wardrobe accordingly. In summer tailored shorts and light shirts are key whilst in winter layering will become a priority.
