Five Reasons To Visit Rome In Autumn
Visiting Rome is always a good idea but autumn, in particular, is a great season to spend some time here
After the summer heat and beach days are behind us, visit Rome for a long weekend – or more! What are the benefits of fall in the beautiful Italian capital?
Visit Rome when the weather is mild
Rome’s Mediterranean climate, means that September and October provide visitors with the perfect temperature. The mornings and evenings are cool, but afternoons are still sunny and warm. The morning breeze wakes you up gently, and you start your day wandering the city in the fresh air. Later on, the temperature rises and you can take off your trench and even work on your sun tan (very important factor in life of Italians!) Walking tours are very pleasant, no sweat on the horizon, just ease in the air. The mild weather means you have the privilege of deciding if you should stroll the city leisurely for hours, rent a bike or sit for lunch on the sunny side of the street – all the activities that are more challenging in the summer heat.
Visit Rome for the unique nature colors and tastes
In the autumn, as well as in wintertime, the Roman pines and palms will still be green, so don’t expect the falling red leaves of other European capitals. However, as October knocks on Rome’s door, the light changes and the atmosphere in the city and countryside becomes magical. Romans adore the fall and especially outdoor day trips, affectionately called “Ottobrate Romane”. These long-time traditions of day trips in the countryside, made primarily at harvest time use to be a form of entertainment for nobles celebrating the fertility of the nature. Today,”Ottobrata” stands for ‘endless summer’, and the perfect occasion to plan a wine trip to a tavern in Castelli Romani, explore some vineyards, experience the grape or olive harvest, and eat mushrooms and chestnuts…
Cultural calendar is full
In the Italian capital city, the fall is a synonym for art and exhibitions. You can choose among Picasso, Monet, Hokusai or Bernini. If you are more oriented to new technologies and digital art, Digitalife is the event for you. If contemporary art is your cup of tea, check out RomeArt Week (RAW) or Art meets Amusement in the beautiful Chiostro del Bramante. And, in case you are not inspired yet, try the Roma Jazz Festival or Cinema Festival , which all take place in the fall in the Eternal city.

Benefit from low hotel prices and visit Rome on the budget
The late fall is the perfect opportunity to benefit from off-season prices on hotel rooms. Some hotels charge up to 40% less in the second half of November and first half of December. Don’t you want to get a head start on your Christmas shopping and enjoy a lavish, discounted break in one of the Eternal city’s four-star hotels – preferably with a Spa? And if you start planning your late November visit immediately, you will save on the air fare as well!
