Mediterranean summers and mild winters

If you really love the heat, you’ll adore the Rome weather in summer. Dry, hot conditions are practically guaranteed, you can expect around 10 hours of sunshine every day, and rainfall is rare. Rome is a popular summer destination, which means it can get busy at this time of year.

Spring and autumn aren’t so sunny, but you can still enjoy average temperatures from 16°C in March to 22°C in October. The weather during these seasons makes them a perfect time for soaking up Rome’s rich culture but without the sticky heat and large crowds you get in the height of summer. The climate is still lovely and pleasant, but the queues to get into the big attractions are much shorter. You’ll also get around six to eight hours of sunshine, which will provide the ideal backdrop for your holiday photos.

As you might expect, the weather in Rome is coolest during the winter season, and December is the wettest month of the year. But the climate tends to stay pretty mild. Temperatures only fall to around 13°C in December, January and February, and you’ll find that there aren’t too many tourists around either.
