Why do we recommend visiting Florence in autumn and winter? It’s simple! November to February is the best time to capture it at its most authentic and in all its most beautiful tones!
In the city that was the cradle of the Renaissance, autumn and winter are never cold. It is often the case that the sky is an intense blue that makes the contours of the palaces and churches stand out more clearly, casting a special light on the city and the Arno River and enhancing its beauty. When it’s a little misty, Florence has that graceful melancholy charm that makes it so romantic and relaxing. During this season, the hills surrounding the city, as well as the Florentine parks, have the gold and red tints of autumn, creating a kind of painted scene that even the greatest painters would envy.
The streets and squares are less crowded and become ideal spots for those who love to take peaceful strolls, breathing in art and history, perhaps lingering in front of the windows of stores and artisan workshops, or browsing through the stalls of the markets, and then going into a café for a cup of hot fragrant tea or a steaming hot chocolate.
When visiting Florence in autumn and winter, in the cooler days, what could be better than taking refuge in a historic building and exploring the wonders it contains? Some of the notable buildings worth mentioning are Palazzo Davanzati, Casa Buonarroti, Casa Martelli, the Bardini Museum and Casa Siviero, all located in the centre and therefore easy to reach on foot as well.
In these months, in addition to the artistic riches that make Florence a jewel of rare beauty, there are several interesting exhibitions worth visiting. To name a few: “The Cleaner” by Marina Abramovic, until January 20, 2019 at Palazzo Strozzi, “The Roberto Casamonti Collection“, until March 10, 2019 at Palazzo Bartolini Salimbeni and “In viaggio con stile: guidare le automobili, lasciarsi guidare dalle mode (Traveling with style: driving cars, letting yourself be guided by trends)”, at Palazzo Pitti until December 31, 2018.
