The Best Time to Visit Rome
Summers in Rome can get scorching-hot, so we don’t advise booking airfares to Rome during this time. July and August temperatures often go over 40 degrees. Spring, however, brings perfect temperatures, with very little precipitation, so sightseeing will be a pleasure. September to November is also a good option, as this time also brings buce temperatures. However, spring and autumn is the peak tourist season in Rome, so you might run into crowds of tourists and more expensive accommodation prices. For the most economically-friendly option book cheap airfares to Rome in December, January, or February. All of the restaurants, and cafes in the city will still be open, and the temperatures almost never drop to below zero. Snow is also very rare, so you will still be able to go sightseeing and enjoy the beauty of this city.
