June is the start of Summer in Florence. As the temperatures in the city begin to increase you need to be sure that you pack light breathable natural fabrics that will reduce sweat and help you cope sightseeing in the Italian summer heat.

If your trip spans a couple of months then please be sure to check out our other monthly and regional Italy guides:

How hot is Florence in June?

Summer in Florence is hot hot hot. June is admittedly the coolest of the summer months but you can still expect lots of sunshine.

The average high temperature in June tends to be around 25 – 29C / 78°F to 85°F and the low around 20C/69F which can make touring in the heat somewhat uncomfortable.

Now while the temperatures do get higher towards the end of the month I would still make sure I had a couple of layers with you for eating out and those cooler days. And as always I would never travel to Florence without my trusty pashmina especially if you are planning to visit the Duomo.

And remember the temperature fluctuates greatly between months check out our monthly florentine guides:

What to Wear in Florence in June

As we said, Florence in June is hot, therefore it is important to pack for the heat. You want lots of light fabrics that are natural rather than manmade that will reduce sweat.

  • Cotton
  • Linen

What to wear in Florence in June for Women

June in Florence is hot so I would ditch the jeans for a lighter weight trouser such as a linen trouser or a chino.

Longer length skirts and dresses

Short skirts and dresses are always on my what not to wear in Italy list. That is because they are not appropriate in lots of Florence tourist attractions such as churches like the Duomo in Florence.

However midi and maxi length skirts and dresses are great and are good for day to night transition outfits. Just be sure that whatever skirts you pack don’t reveal your knee. This is especially important if your skirt has a slit in it. 

This is because when visiting Italian churches you need to be modest in your dress which includes having knees covered up.


A loose blouse works perfectly for warmer days and cooler nights and perfect for evenings when you decide to dine alfresco.

T Shirt

I always pack a few t shirts when visiting Florence no matter the time of year.

For this time of year cotton short sleeve t shirts are preferable.

Also it is worth noting that if you want to blend in with locals plan single color tees and t shirts without graphics or slogans will make you fit in with the locals most.


Although you are unlikely to need thick jumpers during the day in June, a cardigan is great for cooler days and as an extra evening layer especially if you want to enjoy some al fresco dining in June.

PJs or Nightie

Lightweight pyjamas and nighties are perfect especially as much Florentine accommodation foes not have air conditioning.


The sun in bright in Florence whatever month you visit so don’t come without a pair of sunglasses.


I always recommend taking a sun hat if you are visiting Florence in summer.

Underwear and Socks

Goes without saying

What to pack for Florence in June for Men

The rules and layers that a you will want to pack for men in Florence in Summer is similar to the guidance for women. For this reason we recommend packing the below items:


Chinos and linen trousers are perfect for men in June.

T Shirts and Shirts

Again I would bring more short sleeve T shirts for this time of year and stick to darker coloured tees to not look like a tourist. 

Button down shirts, especially short sleeve ones are good for evenings in Florence.


for the reasons we said above

Underwear, Socks and Pjs

Best Shoes for Florence in June 


Now I know many people worry about wearing sneakers in Italy, there seems to be an internet rumour that tells people these are a big no no in Italy. However let me tell you they are not only fine but also the perfect shoe for Florence in Summer.

Fashion trainers tend to be more in keeping with locals over sports sneakers but any is fine.


Sandals are great for the day in the heat and are also my go to shoe for  dinner in Italy where the locals do tend to dress for dinner.
