Averages for Florence in September
Florence is right on the picturesque Arno River in the Tuscany region of Italy. This city was a major centre of trade and finance in the middle ages and now it is known to be one of the fashion capitals of the world and it’s still a major financial centre, too. Visitors will find lots of interesting historical sites throughout the city.
September it is the perfect time to visit Florence as the climate is just right, with daytime average high temperatures being around 27°C (81°F). It’s slightly cooler than in August and it’s more comfortable when touring the city on foot.
In the evenings, it is still comfortably chilly with temperatures dropping down to 14°C (57°F) but the cool air provides a great contrast to the heat of the day. Enjoying coffee or wine in one of the many street side cafes is a great pastime in Florence in September.
The Palazzo Pitti or the Pitti Palace, is a grand palace that once housed the Medici family and the most important rulers of the region. Napoleon used the Palazzo as his power base in the late 18th century. Over the years, it served a storehouse for the vast and personal fortunes of those powerful families who ruled the region. Today, it is open to the public and many of the same works of art and statuary are still on display for all to see.
Gardens (Giardini Boboli) are located directly behind the Pitti Palace
and are a great place to relax and unwind after a day of touring the city.
There are fountains and lots of birds to see and hear. Many tourists pass by
this area without bothering to stop so if one is looking for a little peace and
quiet away from all hubbub and hullabaloo of the city, then this is the perfect

the fact that it is located in its very own park providing a quiet and peaceful
atmosphere for guests who are looking for a quiet escape from the noise and
confusion of the city.
