Roma, Italy - one of Europe's finest city

Rome, Italy

Rome can be considered two cities in one, with Vatican City inside, but that wouldn’t really be true since the Vatican is considered a state and not a city. That is just one instance of how unique this historical city truly is and how you can wander around the streets for hours, as you learn something new every single minute. Imagine going through three thousand plus years of history in a short amount of time and discovering treasures along the way before stopping to catch glimpses of the culture that lives in every nook and cranny of this part of the world.

There are so many attractions to see when you are in Rome, but there are a few that must be on the top of your list. They include the Colosseum, the Roman Forum, the Pantheon, Trevi Fountain, and the Spanish Steps. Of course, once you enter Vatican City, you must take the time to see St. Peter’s Square, the Vatican Museums, St. Peter’s Basilica, and the intricate details of the Sistine Chapel.

The summers in Rome are shorter than you think, but the hot days will seem to linger if you pay enough attention. The winter months are much colder, and the long dreary days are often quite wet. It very rarely snows in this city, but it is possible. However, you must be prepared for rain at almost any time, unless you are there in the middle of the summer.

The peak season in Rome is during the summer, which happens to be May through September. The temperatures may be hot, but the festivals and other events keep people coming back for more! It is not as crowded in the fall or spring, unless it is the week of Easter. During those seasons, you can freely move through the streets without a worry of bumping into anyone. The best deals can be found during the winter months, with the exception of the month of December, but you must dress appropriately for the cold weather and the rain.
