“Rome, sweet Rome”

The old beauty, timeless and romantic atmosphere that you can find in Rome always leaves an impression on the hearts of those who visit, be it from a walk down the cobblestone streets, eating gelato, or seeing ancient ruins.
Planning your trip to experience the best of Rome requires not just knowing what to see or who to travel with, but when the best time of year to visit Rome actually is. We’ve got some tips below!

When is the Best Time of Year to Visit Rome?

The best time may depend on your preferences for weather, travel costs or even if you’d prefer less (or more) people to be around. We’ve broken down the seasons so you can see which might be the best fit your tastes:
The spring period in Rome is always associated with magnificent weather and a bloom of bright colors. This period is popular for picking luscious strawberries from the fields or relishing the season’s produce: asparagus and fava beans. Amidst this natural beauty, you cannot overlook the different kinds of Italian pecorino cheese available.
Summer is the season of peak tourists in Italy; travelers arrive for the warm weather and sun-filled days. Despite the crowds, the traveler will enjoy the quintessential Italian experience of lazy days on the beach and alfresco dining.
September is the month when wine harvest time starts in Italy. The vineyards become bustling with activity, and you can visit them for tastings and tours to become acquainted with the essence of Italian wine.
Italy is more magical in the winter months, around Christmastime. Starting from December 8 to January 6, the country becomes full of festive traditions, Christmas markets, and tasty seasonal treats.
