    Default Mosquitoes in Tuscany and Florence

    I am planning my first trip to Italy for the last half of October this year. I have seen some sites that mention problems with mosquitoes. Can anyone tell me what the mosquito situation is in Florence in late October? Thanks.

    Default Moquitoes in Florence


    the sad truth is...these little guys hang around way too long! But that doesn't mean that you will see any in the city center - they prefer the residential areas and to be honest even if you can find them in October their metabolism has them on a no buzz/no eat mode - .

    So should you be prepared with bug spray - no. Now if you were going to be here in June-July-August and parts of September...yes, be prepared for a visit by these little guys. In that case, you can get a plug-in that has a no smell/stink system that will keep them at bay for your rental apartment or hotel room. I use it all summer and never have a problem. Outside - at night - yes, especially in the countryside, so be prepared with a spray or cream.

    But I take their presence as a good sign, it means life is flourishing

    Buon Viaggio,
