Summer is, sadly, the worst time to visit Florence. With the warmest temperatures in the range of 17°C (62.6°F) and 31°C (87.8°F), there is a significant rise in incoming tourists targeting the best weather. The shortcomings are the long queues in every spot, packed museums and historic places, high fees, and fares at every point, and fully booked flights and accommodations. The sidewalk cafes remain full and stuffy all the time, and the streets are buzzing with noisy crowds. Weather-wise, the high temperatures, long sunshine hours, and high UV index make visiting Florence during summer the least enjoyable.

The high rainfall in the wet season results in flash floods and thunderstorms that may cause significant damage. When the rivers around Florence flood, the city comes to slow motion, and the flooding spills over to affect the neighboring states.
