Rome

Share

Look, we understand a visit to Rome necessitates running the gauntlet of ancient sites and tourist hotspots. After all, visiting the Italian capital can be a once in a lifetime opportunity to take in the birthplace of Western culture and civilisation, but Rome is also a living, breathing city with enough attractions and hidden gems to rival anywhere. You can (and should) wander around the Colosseum and throw pennies into the Trevi fountain, but if you’re willing to look past the traditional and venture into the unknown, you’ll find something that speaks to you in a way nothing else has, whether that be a delectable meal, a stunning view, or even the virulent passion of a Lazio Roma game.

The Pantheon is great to amble around in, but there are hundreds of other ancient churches that have a tenth of the queues and just as much history. And whilst St Peter’s and the Sistine Chapel are unmissable, they aren’t the only attractions in Vatican City, let alone West of the Tiber. And that’s not even mentioning the food, the art, and the nightlife. Everyone can appreciate the Spanish Steps, sure, but Rome offers so much more than a mecca for archaeologists; you just have to know where to look.

Weather

Rome is hot; there are no two ways about it. In general, the Spring and Autumn offer more bearable weather and fewer crowds, as well as allowing you to see the natural splendour of the city alongside the ancient monuments. However, visiting in summer has plenty of benefits: everything will be open for tourists, and the famous gelato will be even more of a life saver. Winter is much quieter and colder, but temperatures rarely get below zero, so it’s more than bearable as long as you pack wisely.
