We are heading to Florence in a week and I've been checking the weather reports and am beginning to get a bit concerned. I knew it would be hot in August, but didn't realize how bad it would be! It looks like it will be around 100°F the entire time we are there. I'm starting to wish we had planned to spend that time at the coast instead, but we have an apartment reserved now and Museum reservations.
Does anyone have suggestions or ideas on ways we can spend our days to keep cool? I'm reading that we will be miserable sightseeing during the daytime hours, and that the museums aren't particularly cool. We have 3 1/2 full days in the area. Is it possible to do a day trip to the coast somewhere to spend that time at the beach? I've also seen posted here that there is a swimming pool we can go to.
