August: holidays, good weather, travelling, no stress, no work and…Florence! Don’t let yourself down if you encounter notices like “chiuso per ferie” (closed for holidays) and enjoy a different Florence in August, one you will not find any different time of the year.
In Italy, August is the key month to go on for a holiday, which means that many Florentines rush off to the beach and mountain leaving their city and transforming it into a peaceful oasis. Even though it’s hard to witness a decline of tourists in Florence any time of the year, the city exudes a more tranquil and calm atmosphere in general.
With the upcoming of the summer, Tuscany’s capital makes the most of its Mediterranean good climate and sets up a series of different outdoor events to enrich your visit such as concerts, exhibitions and wine tastings. Natural open air spaces turn into stages, scenarios for social encounters, refreshing settings and offer a series of activities only possible under good weather.
Important buildings and monuments stretch out their schedules up until summer midnight. This is the case for example of beautiful and enigmatic Palazzo Vecchio that, together with its Torre d’Arnolfo stands majestically in Piazza della Signoria. If the day is hot, no alarm. Florence offers a range of different green areas such as lovely parks and gardens that will enable you to enjoy a refreshing promenade amongst Tuscan flora.
Needles to say is that Il Salviatino, your luxury hotel in Florence, will be waiting for you in August with cool pools, tasteful aperitivi, inviting terraces with breathtaking panoramas, and much more.
