Visiting from Auckland to Rome

Rome travel information

Rome is the capital city of Italy, loaded with history, scenic ruins such as the Colosseum, St Peter’s Basilica and Trevi Fountain. It is one of the world’s most romantic cities, packed with inspiring art, vibrant street life, picturesque streets, cafes and who could forget the pizza, pasta, gelato and vino. The city is awash with culture and European Art where you’ll come across many masterpieces and sculptures by Michelangelo, paintings by Caravaggio, frescoes by Raphael and fountains by Bernini. Rome is the prefect destination for your next holiday for superb people watching, dining alfresco and seeing the many sights.

When to visit

Best time to visit  Rome

The best time to visit Rome is September to November and April to May when there are fewer crowds, the days are sunny but not too hot. In April you can enjoy the Easter celebrations and with the warm weather makes it a good time to visit the Colosseum and sip coffee at an outdoor café. July and August is very hot and humid with most locals leaving the city, so it is little quieter, with the temperature around 40°C. Winter time ( December through to February) is a good time to take in the tourist attractions without the crowds, head shopping to the many boutiques and enjoy Italian cuisine. Temperatures range from 8 to 14°C, so be sure to take a coat.
