January in Florence : Gennaio a Firenze


Florentine fashion icon Wanny Di Filippo, founder of Il Bisonte, at Pitti Uomo

Like every other month of the year there is a lot going on in Florence, but the killer event each January is Pitti Uomo. The fashion world pretty much dominates the city for the whole month, with the "beautiful people" popping up everywhere for events, parties, and of course, the major trade exhibition at the Fortezza da Basso.

January Weather

  • Avg. temp: 52° to 36° (°F)
  • Rainfall: about 2 inches, or 10 rainy days
  • Hours of sunlight: with the rain clouds, only about 3 hours a day of sunshine on average!
Although Pitti Uomo is a trade only event, if you are adventurous there are ways to get in... but you'll have to figure that out for yourselves! There are also countless parties, receptions, and other fashion related events at various retailers, boutiques, and other venues throughout the city - just keep your eyes open! The major Florentine fashion retailer, Luisaviaroma usually hosts a party that is one of the hottest tickets in town. This year's edition is from January 9th to 12th, 2024.

At this time of the year some of the traffic of tourists and vendors is slightly less, and while it may be a little quieter on the streets there is still plenty to do, especially inside (think museums and churches).

This January two major exhibits/events are coming to an end:

Buon anno!
