Roma in Winter
The weather in Roma is quite favourable during the winter season, with temperatures that are quite mild due to its Mediterranean climate. The average temperature is 12 degrees with maximums of 17 degrees, which is higher than in other European destinations. Snowfall is quite rare in the region. The climate offers a good reason to enjoy a pleasant stay in the Italian capital.
Winter offers another considerable advantage! You wouldn’t think of going to Roma without wanting to discover the historical and architectural treasures that are hidden in every corner of the city. Indeed, in terms of discoveries, the winter season will become a great ally because there are far fewer tourists during this period than during the summer months. This will save you time when you want to visit monuments or museums. It is important to know that all the important monuments are open to the public even during the winter period. You can visit the Colosseum, St. Peter’s Basilica, the Vatican Museum, the Sistine Chapel, the Trevi Fountain and other must-see sites in the Eternal City. In addition, the Roman museums are open free of charge on the first Sunday of every month.
Another highlight of discovering Roma in winter is the night.
As night comes early in winter, you can enjoy beautiful evening strolls in the light of the most beautiful illuminated monuments, the streets of Roma are magnificent for getting lost in the evening and discovering excellent small restaurants to taste traditional dishes.
