Autumn in the city

As the peak summer tourist season subsides and the crowds disperse, travellers eyeing up a break in the Italian capital are in for plenty of perks. Rome has a Mediterranean climate, making spring and autumn the most pleasant times of the year to visit, with a daily temperatures range from the high teens to mid-twenties. Must-see tourist traps are also likely to be quieter, while cheap last minute deals are to be had in hotels and B&Bs.

Plenty to see

With culture around every corner, travellers can easily soak up some history. Rome's large range of archaeological sites and museums range in speciality from classical history to contemporary interest and admission to many of those affiliated with the City Council's Musei in Comune system are free. National museums and archaeological sites, including the Colosseum, offer free admission to all on the first Sunday of each month.

Getting around

Rome wasn't built in a day, and it can't be explored in one either. Most of the city's best known tourist spots are spread far apart, making walking tours virtually impossible, but, fortunately, it boasts a well-connected public transport system incorporating bus, tram and metro services. If you're brave, you can always rent a quintessential Vespa to take in a unique perspective on the city.
