Renowned for its wine and gorgeous landscapes, Tuscany is a popular tourist attraction year-round. Different seasons offer different opportunities and drawbacks. For example, the summer months of June to early September are the hottest, with average temperatures in the upper 80s. Additionally, summer is the busiest season, and popular attractions will often have long lines and huge crowds. For more space and lower temperatures, visit Tuscany between September and October, when high temperatures reach the low 70s on average. Fall also brings beautiful changes in the color of the foliage and grape harvesting.
Winter is the slow season for Tuscan tourism. Temperatures drop to the 30s, 40s, and 50s, and many restaurants and hotels close for a few months. On the other hand, this is a good season to scope out a good deal. Finally, spring offers enticing temperatures and shorter lines at popular tourist attractions. Ultimately, the best seasons to visit Tuscany are fall and spring.
