Averages for Florence in March
The city itself is surrounded by hills such as Arcetri, Bellosguardo (Florence), Carregi, Fiesole, Poggio Imperiale and Settignano. The city is also a centre of cultural importance in regards to the architecture of many of its older buildings.
Visitors to Florence in February can expect daytime temperature highs of around 15°C (59°F). Since it is still quite cool, visitors should bring warmer clothing such as sweaters and coats for their stay.
In the evenings, the temperature can get as low as 5°C (41°F). It is slightly warmer than in January and February but is still cold enough to require heavy clothing for outdoor activities at night. As always, visitors are advised to check local weather forecasts prior to their arrival in Florence.
One of the main things that attract tourists to Florence is the many works of art that make their home in the city. There are quite literally a ton of museums and art galleries displaying works of art by modern masters as well as the Renaissance greats. One good place to visit for artwork is the Basilica of Santa Croce (Basilica of the Holy cross).
As any other structure in Florence, the Basilica of Santa Croce is to be admired. The design was Gothic inspired and a number of artists contributed to building and designing this famous destination. It was also a tradition for legendary Florentines to be buried in the Basilica. The most notable of them are Michelangelo, Machiavelli and Galileo.
For travellers on a budget who don’t mind staying in a smaller hotel, the Hotel Alessandra is a perfect choice. The rooms are small but tastefully decorated and include TV with cable, free Wi-Fi access and modern bathrooms. Most rooms offer a beautiful view of the Arno River and the location puts visitors just steps away from Ponte Vecchio Bridge and the Uffizi Art Museum as well as a number of restaurants and markets to explore.
