Peak season vs Low season

  • For a quieter and more relaxed visit, aim for the low season, typically during the second or third week of the month. May and September are ideal, thanks to milder weather, fewer tourists, and a chance to avoid the summer crowds.
  • Spring (April to June) and autumn (September to October) are also ideal seasons to explore Palazzo Vecchio, with pleasant weather and fewer crowds than peak summer months.
