Visiting Rome in the Summer? What to expect – by RomeCabs

 

Buon giorno and welcome to Stefano’s RomeCabs Transfer and Tour blog.  We are dedicated in providing quality and reliable Transfers, Day Tours and Shore Excursions and throughout Italy.

Summer is by far the most popular time of the year to visit Italy. With summer vacations, warm temperature and long days to enjoy more sightseeing, millions of visitors from around the world make their way to Rome either on vacations or by cruise ships.

There is one question that is most frequently asked, and in this article we will let you know.

 

Visiting Rome in the Summer? What to expect

 

Hot Summer Months in Rome

Rome is hot in the summer, temperatures can rise into upper 80’s and 90’s on many days.  The stone buildings, pavement, and monuments absorb sun heat and make the city even hotter.

Staying hydrated is easy as there are many public fountains in Rome where refreshing natural water gushes out, making it possible to refill your water bottle throughout the day.

The sun his hot and strong in the summer, so be sure to protect yourself with sunscreen, sunglasses, and sunhats whenever possible.

 

Summer Sales all around Italy!

After the 1st week of July, the summer sale starts in Italy! Expect great value on clothing, shoes, accessories and more.

The summer sales last through August (or until the shops finish their sale merchandise), so if you don’t catch the sales when they start, you can still expect great findings and even more reduced prices throughout the summer.

At Outlet Malls like Sorrate and McCarthur Glen near Rome you’ll find sales even on existing discounted prices on popular and designer labels.

If a shopping spree is part of your plans while in Rome and the thought of carrying a too many shopping bags around from store to store, or you’d like to visit the outlet malls, Stefano’s RomeCabs can assist with a private deluxe vehicle with plenty of space for all your shopping and an English speaking Driver at your disposal to take you where you’d like to go.

Crowded Museums and Monuments

With millions of visitors into Rome in the summer, expect Museums and Monuments like the Vatican Museums and Colosseum to be very crowded.

If you don’t book your Admission Tickets in advance online, you can expect hours’ long ticket lines.

If crowded attractions are not for you, you can substitute the Vatican Museum with other Museums in Rome like Borghese Gallery, Capitoline Museums, of the National Roman Museum.

You can also substitute a visit inside the crowded Colosseum with Roman Forum, Palatine Hill, Baths of Caracalla, or Trajan’s Market.

Last minute bookings for tours and transfers not always available

While last minute deals “may” be possible on many airlines and hotels, if planning to arrange hotels, transfers and tours in Rome in the summer, you may not find availability for last minute requests.  

Aside from the large number of visitors in Rome, add the cruisers (about 2 million a year) who also book hotels, transfers and tours pre cruise, shore excursion from Civitavecchia, or post cruise.

If planning to visit Rome in advance and you want to have your choice of hotel accommodation, transfers and tours, book in advance and remove the stress, anxiety, and disappointments that come with last minute preparations.
