Walk through Rome’s ancient streets and feel transported in time. This venerable capital city is known as the Eternal City. With a brutal and documented history, Rome has been the centre of power, religion and culture for centuries, and the legacy. There are few other cities with the same level of landmarks and influential art history. Though it’s dismissed as a tourist trap today, it remains to appear on the bucket list of many.
The Climate in Rome
Close to the coast, here you’ll find a typical Mediterranean climate, with hot dry summers. Winters are milder and rainy.
The most popular time to visit when looking for a Rome deal is in the summer months of June to August, when temperatures can hit over 30 degrees Celsius. Peak-time weather comes with peak-time tourist numbers so you can expect popular attractions and streets to be crowded.
However, with minimal rain, you’ll find many open-air events and concerts in the city. With a lack of sea breeze and the city’s buildings locking in the heat, the heat can be stifling.
The autumn in Italy means milder temperatures and slightly fewer tourists. During this time, the leaves will start changing colours beautifully and you’ll have the highest temperatures in September reaching up to 27 degrees and dipping to 16 degrees.
The majority of rainfall in the city falls from autumn to winter, with December being the wettest month. So, if it’s a Mediterranean sun you’re craving, it’s best to avoid travelling to Rome during the end of autumn.
Flights from Ireland to Rome
Rome has two airports, Fiumicino, or Leonardo da Vinci airport, and Ciampino airport. The only direct and lowest cost flights to the city are from Dublin Airport.
Fiumicino is Rome’s main international airport, located 32 km from and is served by Aer Lingus directly, as well as other major airlines. You can find flights for just over €50 return if you book off-peak dates in advance. To reach the city from Fiumicino, you can have a few options. The Leonardo Express is a direct train service to Rome’s main station, Stazione Termini. The FR1 train and coach buses are cheaper and slower alternatives.
For direct flights into Rome on a Ryanair flight, you will land in Ciampino Airport. This smaller airline 16km from the city is served by several budget airlines. To reach Rome from Ciampino, you can take a bus, train or taxi.
The best things to see in Rome
The Pantheon is one of the best-preserved landmarks of Rome that you will find. Thought to have been designed as a temple for Roman gods in 128 AD, this monument is recognisable for its massive domed ceiling. Later used as a burial ground for important Renaissance figures like Raphael, the Pantheon functions as a Christian church today.
The Vatican City
Although technically a separate country, this city-state is surrounded by the city of Rome. The seat of Catholicism has its origins in the construction of St Peter’s Basilica. If you want to view world-renowned art, then queue early for the Vatican Museums (and check to see if it’s open on your desired day!). Here’s where you would want to look into fast-track museum tickets with your Rome deal in advance to see the Sistine Chapel.
The Colosseum is probably the most recognisable landmark in Rome. Opened in the year 80 AD, this amphitheatre played host to the gladiator games, where men would battle each other or wild animals. Left to fall to ruin for centuries, the Colosseum’s significance was realised in the 18th century and has been the city’s symbol of history since then.
This half villa/ half museum boasts extravagant rooms, splendid gardens and some of the most important art from the Renaissance period. Here, you’ll find masterpieces from masters like Caravaggio, Bernini, Titian and Raphael.
