Florence visit - what to wear?

My husband and I are going to Florence on Tuesday for ten days. From what I have seen, the daytime weather there is going to be in the 80's. What should we wear? For me, are shorts or crop pants appropriate? The same for my husband, are shorts OK? We will be taking several tours so I'm sure we'll be going into various churches. Please advise -

Thanks much,

Shorts are fine as long as they reach the knees or just below. Shoulders should always be covered if going into churches.

Comfortable walking shoes and a hat and sunscreen for protection.

No Worries, Be comfortable and enjoy.

I find a big, light weight scarf/shawl is handy - you can throw it round your shoulders if you are going into a church, or its useful to keep the sun off if you are prone to sunburn.

With ten days in Florence, take advantage of the old custom of avoiding the early-afternoon sun. Get an early start each day, have lunch and maybe a siesta after noon, and venture out again later.

The weather might be like that of your home town in late June. It is unusually warm for Florence in late May. I had to check the forecasts before I believed your original post.

We prefer to wear the lightest-weight tops and bottoms we have. No shorts or t-shirts for us, out on the street. Be prepared for sudden rainstorms.
