Last year, sunflowers were blooming between mid-June to mid-July - It just depends on where you are.

Huge difference in timing depending upon how far south you are. In Lazio, for example, they've practically been and gone by the time the first fields are fully open here in southern Tuscany. It may be earlier this year as the weather's been exceptionally mild but generally speaking it's end of June / early July. They tend to be grown in valleys or on the lower slopes of hillsides. Good places to see them (and they are an amazing sight) are around Val d'Elsa (a famous sunflower growing area), in the Val di Chiana everywhere and parts of the Arbia valley south of Siena, in particular near Monteroni / Lucignano. Not so many in the Val d'Orcia, which is predominantly wheat, but you'll see the occasional field up on the Crete plus lots around Chiusi or on the southern slopes of Monte Cetona.
