The weather in Rome

Rome may be visited all year round because of its generally stable climate. The best seasons are undoubtedly spring and fall, as well as for the beautiful displays that Rome’s famous sunsets provide when they color the houses’ roofs. It can be exceedingly exhausting to go through the city in the heat of July and August, and it is not unusual for the temperature to drop below zero in the winter.

Everyone is familiar with the Ponentino of Rome, a coastal wind that cools the evenings in the spring and summer. Even though the city has grown and you can no longer feel much in the center, it is still one of the lyrical features that characterize the Roman evening and, by extension, dinner in Rome.

Safety in Rome

Rome, which houses the government, parliament, ministries, and all other official institutions, is a heavily regulated city. Any time of day or night, you can wander in peace through the center. Pickpockets “work” in touristy locations, the metro, and on buses, therefore precautions must be taken more frequently. As one travels to the suburbs and “townships,” where incidents of petty delinquency are far more common, caution must also increase.

Information desks for tourists

There are information offices for the Rome Tourist Board (Headquarters in Via 11, Tel. 06 48 89 91) in all the city’s key locations. The most significant ones greet guests right at Fiumicino Airport. The Trevi Fountain, Via del Corso, the Vatican, and other locations in the streets and squares of Rome are additional informational hubs.
