Yearly Weather Guide
The climate in Italy has regional variations. During the summer, the south of Italy is very hot and dry, the north is warm with occasional rain, and the central region, where you will find Rome, is hot and humid due to its subtropical climate.
You can expect average daytime temperatures in Rome of 30°C in summer and 12°C in winter, with nighttime temperatures dropping to 17°C in summer and 3°C in winter. If you travel towards the coast, these temperatures can be a little bit lower in the summer months and slightly higher in the winter months.
Although Rome is the most popular between June and September, the best time to visit is either spring or autumn. The temperature is much more pleasant in these seasons and the city is less crowded. If you are planning to travel during the winter months, ensure you take warm clothing with you as nighttime’s can become cold, with temperatures dropping suddenly when the sun sets.
Rome has over 2,500 hours of sunshine per year and one of the optimum number of hours for daylight in Europe. In summer, the city averages 10.7 hours of sunshine per day for 15 hours of daylight, and even in winter, you can expect an average of 3.6 hours of sunshine per day from 10 hours of daylight. This is about three times more sun duration than in the northern half of Europe for the winter months.
