When to fly to Rome
Rome’s peak tourist season begins just before Easter (when the greatest number of visitors flock to the city) and runs through October. June to the beginning of September is usually the most expensive and crowded time to travel to Rome and when most Rome flights and hotels are booked in advance. Many visitors come in the summer despite the warmer weather. It’s recommended that you don’t book trips to Rome in August. Most of the population is on vacation for the month of August, especially the last two weeks. Even hotels, restaurants, and shops are closed as all the Romans go on vacation.
Most attractions either go on shorter winter hours or close for renovations from late October to Easter. Some hotels and restaurants are closed for a month or two between November and February. However, during the winter months, especially January through March, you can often get into the open attractions and sights without having to wait in line.
