ROMAN WEATHER

Rome, Italian capital, city of art, culture and events. This beautiful city lives at a fairly chaotic pace and obviously has a large number of visitors. The reason? Rome is the perfect city to visit at any time of the year! In all seasons Rome is beautiful and alive, thanks to its favorable climate and multiple events, such as fairs, exhibitions and concerts, for all kinds. In short, we are talking about a city that is always worth visiting and that will never bore you.

The climate of Rome is Mediterranean and in every season the city is sunny and has mild temperatures, never too low. Winter and autumn are the seasons that see the most rain, autumn is very humid, while winter is cold mainly during the night.
Snow is rare and it is said that it does not snow every year. Instead summer and spring are very hot and sunny, with rare afternoon thunderstorms but a lot of heat, especially in the summer months.

Rome in Spring

In the spring months the days are warm and pleasant, with temperatures around 15 ° C that will allow you to take a nice tour of the main sites and go to the discovery of the ancient city, without suffering terribly from the heat, as it happens in summer. For example, do not miss the Colosseum, the Trevi Fountain, the Roman Forum, the Spanish Steps, Piazza Navona and the Pantheon, which can be visited with a guided walking tour that will make you discover the most interesting aspects of the city and its monuments.

Rome in summer

The Roman summer is very dry and hot, characterized by constant heat and practically rare rainy days. Temperatures reach 30 ° C, while in the height of summer they touch 40 ° C. In short, Rome in summer is suitable mainly for those who are used to the heat and do not suffer so much!
A solution can be a walk on the Lungotevere refreshed by the gentle breeze of the river, stopping in the various gardens and parks that will present you. To give you some ideas we remind you of the Bio Park and the Botanical Garden, both large and beautiful.
Along the walk you will also meet Castel Sant’Angelo also surrounded by a beautiful garden.

Rome in the Autumn

As we have already said, autumn is very humid and rainy and this is certainly not the best weather condition for visiting the city in a peaceful way. Temperatures are still acceptable, but rain could hinder your stay in the city.
However, you can take advantage of it and take hours to fully visit the Vatican with its interesting museums and, if the day you have chosen is not so bad, even the immense gardens.

Rome in Winter

Rome is not the classic European city that during the winter turns white creating the typical winter and Christmas atmosphere, on the contrary, snow in Rome is rare and temperatures do not drop below zero, at most they reach 5 ° C. But despite this, the city does not miss anything and does its best to live up to all the others and offer, even in the absence of snow, an inviting and hospitable environment. In fact, the Christmas markets are set up in Piazza Navona for the entire holiday period. This is the perfect combination for those who do not like excessive cold but do not want to give up the tradition of the Christmas markets.

WHAT TO EAT IN ROME

When you think of Rome, historical monuments and buildings, shopping streets and artists’ shops immediately come to mind. But the capital also offers a respectable culinary culture, with traditional dishes that will make you lick your mustache!

Rigatoni con la pajata

Pajata is the small intestine of milk-fed veal, cooked stewed and with tomato for a rather long time. The digestion of such a first course requires several hours, so it is preferable to eat it for lunch, but the taste is true and characteristic.

Bucatini alla Gricia

The only ingredients for the dressing: cheek of Abruzzo origin and pecorino romano. When Amatrice decided to add tomato, the best known amatriciana pasta was born

Trippa alla romana

A dish that is not very easy to digest. Tripe is made up of different parts of bovine stomach and in the Roman recipe it is cooked with the sauce with the addition of a few mint leaves.

Spaghetti cacio e pepe

It might seem the easiest pasta in the world to prepare, but it is not like that: getting a good creaming using only pecorino and pepper is really an art.

Abbacchio scottadito

The lamb is the protagonist of every feast on the Roman table, regardless of the season in which it is celebrated. The scottadito recipe provides a quick grilling, which makes it crispy on the outside and soft on the inside, and etiquette wants it to be consumed strictly with your hands!

Carciofi alla giudia

To make this Jewish dish of the Roman tradition you can only use breast artichokes put in whole boiling oil and left to fry to have a crispy result on the outside and soft inside.

Maritozzo

It is a typical Lazio pastry made in the oven, garnished with fresh whipped cream. Boyfriends used to give it to their promises during Lent.

Saltimbocca alla romana

Well-beaten veal slices, stuffed with cooked ham and sage and kept closed with a toothpick. To be fried strictly in butter!

Coda alla vaccinara

Veal tail cooked in the sauce slowly, so as to make it so soft that the meat must detach itself from the bone without having to use the knife. Definitely the least touristy and most authentic dish of Roman cuisine!

Grattachecca

An excellent digestive and a fantastic refreshing in the sultry summer afternoons: the grattachecca is nothing more than a glass of crushed ice at the moment and flavored with fruit syrup. It will make you become children again in an instant.
