The climate of Rome throughout the year

The Eternal City of Rome fascinates visitors with its great history, its grandiose architecture and its culture. When planning a vacation to Rome, it is important to know the climate. Rome has a Mediterranean climate (Mediterranean climate) with four clear seasons.

1st spring (March to May):

In spring, Rome awakens from the mild cold of winter. The mild temperatures and blooming flowers create a picturesque beauty. Daytime temperatures are usually between 15°C and 25°C, making it an ideal time for outdoor walks to explore the city. The best time of year to visit Rome!

2. Summer (June to August):

Summer in Rome is characterized by sun and warmth. It is the peak season for tourists and attracts many travelers from all over the world. Daytime temperatures range between 25°C and 35°C, with some hot days even exceeding 35°C. Don’t forget to wear sunscreen and stay hydrated. We think that summer is not the ideal season to explore Rome – too crowded and too hot-

3. Autumn (September to November):

We say goodbye to summer and Rome enjoys a great climate in autumn. There are fewer tourists again. Daytime temperatures are between 15℃ and 25℃. Like spring, autumn is a good time to explore the city of Rome.

4. Winter (December to February):

Winters in Rome are mild, with some cool days. Although it rarely snows, there is a festive atmosphere in the city during the Christmas season.
Daytime temperatures are between 5℃ and 15℃. Be sure to bring sweaters and jackets.

Important for travelers to Rome: We have only ever seen queues in Europe that are hundreds of meters long or several hours long in Rome. This is especially true for St. Peter’s Basilica, the Colosseum and the Vatican Museums. Be sure to buy skip-the-line tickets online beforehand and skip the queue!: There are such tickets on this link


Rainfall in Rome is particularly high from October to December and March to May. Bring an umbrella and a waterproof jacket, especially if you plan to sightsee in the city. It rarely rains in midsummer.

Enjoy Rome’s balmy summer evenings strolling through the streets, cafes and squares. The city then has a great atmosphere and is easy to enjoy after sunset.
