What is the best time of year to visit Florence? I wish to spend a few weeks enjoying the architecture, art and history.

the best time is when you can make it to Florence!

Florence is beautiful all year round, of course, weather can vary and so do the crowds.

There are lots of crowds from spring throughout the summer and fall. Maybe a bit less in winter, but it has really become visited all year round with theoretical low season going from November through March. Personally, as far as weather goes, I think May and June and September and October are the best.... not too hot, not too cold... of course, this May has been super rainy and cooler than general so you can never really know for sure.

Florence is an open air museum, you will enjoy its architecture, art and history at any time - I think the best time is when you can plan your vacation and make it here!!
