    It was quite warm. The heat was really muggy… Rome and Venice were especially hot.. Florence weather was pretty good. We were there in the Mid Sept!

    I’m not sure about the UV rays but I do know the fair skinned people on my tour did burn quite quickly. It was still very hot in Sept when I was there. My recommendation would be to wear sun cream, definitely.
