Rome is one of the main tourist cities even in Winter. Why? Because every occasion is a good reason to visit Rome, there are real marvels hidden away in the Eternal City in every season and holiday of the year. And winter in Rome is definitely one of the best occasions to visit the city.
Rome does not suffer particularly from a cold winter climate so it is possible to visit the major tourist attractions of the city even in the months of December and January. To tell the truth, that is the time of the year when you can probably visit more in less time because fewer tourists are present and the lines for seeing the monuments are shorter.
So, what will you want to see in Rome in Winter? Certainly, the main stop will be the Basilica of St Peters, Vatican City, the Sistine Chapel and the Vatican museums. The winter months in Italy are lively with traditions and culture. If you have an interest in the religious aspect of Christmas, this is a perfect destination for you.
Of course, Christmas is not only religion but brings with it a beautiful version of the city of Rome decorated with lights and colours, dotted with Christmas markets in many piazzas, most importantly Piazza Navona. It’s a unique atmosphere, perfect for enjoying a few days of carefree Christmas shopping.
Beyond this, other places of great interest are the symbols of Rome, such as the unforgettable Colosseum, the Imperial Forums, the Pantheon, Campo dei Fiori, Piazza Navona, Trastevere and Castel Sant’Angelo. Moreover, the sky is bluer in the winter in Rome. On bright days with plenty of sunshine, the strolls through the typical areas of the city and the famous parks, such as Villa Borghese, are just as beautiful and absorbing as in warmer days.
If all this is not sufficient to convince you to depart for a little excursion to Rome this Winter, the low season prices and special exhibitions in the next few months certainly will! If you want to save and still visit one of the most beautiful cities in the world, the months of November, December and January are just what you want and need to organize a holiday in Rome.
This year will be especially attractive because, in addition to all the classic museums that are always open, during the next months it will also be possible to visit the shows of Pollock e la scuola di and the school of New York ( 10th October 2018 to February 24th 2019), the French Impressionists’ exhibition from Monet to Cézanne, Palazzo degli Esami ( October 5th 2018 to 9th january 2019) and Zero Calcare at the MAXXI ( from November 10th 2018 to March 10th 2019).
