What to wear in October

We will be visiting in early October and would like to know whether we need light weight clothing, jackets etc. We live in Florida and typically don't wear sweaters and the like until December/January.

This depends very much on where you will be. North to South brings huge weather variations.

The weather has been so unpredictable lately, I think I would wait until a bit closer to your travel time and then check a few of the weather sites to see how the weather is trending.

2009 was horribly cold and rainy from late September on and 2010 was a mixed bag.

You will need something for rain. You will need a jacket/sweater in the evening, particularly at higher altitudes. You have to think layers.

Not to put too fine a point on it: Tuscany is not Florida.

Yes, I agree with the other replies. Italy in October can be wet, even in southern Italy (although Tuscany is north of Rome). Compared with Florida, you will be cold. However, compared with northern Europe (e.g. UK), the weather is not too bad. A sweater or jacket option is a must.

In early October, if the weather is normal, you will need a few short sleeve shirts, some long sleeve shirts and some light jackets. It is cool in the morning and in the evening but during the day it is usually warm enough that you will be comfortable with spring clothes. It's usually around 15 to 18°C.
