What's the weather like?

Generally speaking, central Italy has a mild climate.

Summertime is usually quite hot while autumn and spring may have a very lovely climate. In winter the "Appennini" mountains are often snow-covered for ski lovers happiness.

Northen Tuscany, situated at the foot of the Apennine mountain range, is barely affected by the mild influence of the sea despite it is less than 60 km or 40 miles away from it. Autumn and spring are sometimes rainy season and it is therefore advisable to carry a raincoat and/or umbrella in your luggage. Winter can get cold especially in January and February. A warm jacket or coat is essential in the winter months.
