Tuscany Weather in July
July and August are the hottest two months in Tuscany. It’s also a busy time for travellers, with children out of school. In Europe, business and government shut down from mid-July through mid-August, giving people time for summer holidays. While the average high in July is 31°C, some days the temperature can push above the 100°F mark, making it scorching hot. It’s also bone dry, that incidentally helps to make the heat feel more tolerable. In July we get just over 1 inch of rain on the average. This can even come all at once from one big thunderstorm but it’s the hot sun that reigns over July and you need plenty of sunscreen for protection. The clothing theme is now “less is better” with short and light clothes for the beach, pool, cafes and shopping the open-air markets.
Cover up in a Church
Please remember to bring a scarf or shirt to cover your shoulders if you intend to visit one of the many beautiful churches. The emphasis is on modesty, so for women and girls, you need to cover your legs with a knee-length dress or long plants. No cut-offs, mini-skirts or tank-tops please. Also for men and boys, please wear shirts and long pants to show respect when entering a place of religion. (Average max temperature: 31°C and average precipitation: 31mm).
