It’s all about timing. To avoid crowds and inflated prices, we recommend the period between high and low seasons when the weather is fine, places are still open and happy to welcome travelers, and you can explore a destination at your own pace. ShermansTravel experts call this magical time and space continuum the Sweet Spot.

When to go to Tuscany

Peak Season: June to early-September

Apart from being the hottest month of the year (temperatures average in the 80s), Italy teems with visitors. Try to avoid August, when the entire country goes on holiday and many hotels, restaurants, and shops close.

Off Season: November to March

There’s not much going on during these months – not only do many hotels and restaurants take a month or two off, the temperature also drops to about 50 degrees making the region less appealing to visitors.

Sweet Spot: April to May; late-September to October

Fall and spring bring milder temperatures (in the low 70s) and thinner crowds. Because the lines are shorter, the heat isn’t so stifling, and hotel rates are slightly cheaper, this is the perfect time to visit cities like Florence.
