Rome in December


Hi. I am just curious as to what the weather is like in Rome in December. I am considering going there at this time. Is it very cold?

When is your absolute favorite time of year to see Rome?

Thanks again!
Patricia

Forgive me if this seems smart-alecky - - but Rome is in the northern hemisphere, so the weather is "wintry" in December. It is one of the three coldest months of the year there (January and February are probably colder). It is unlikely to snow, though it could; more likely to rain 10-15 days out of the month. High temperatures are likely to range from 0 to 10-15 degrees C (32 to 50-60 degrees F). Lows from 10 to 40 degrees F.

I have been in Rome in May, June, September and October. June was slightly less enjoyable; the other three were nearly a tie.

Best wishes,

Rex

Hi Patricia,

I've been asking about Italy in November (search: Italy, November) and have gotten some good answers. I believe, the general consensus on weather for November is: rain likely.

I am sure you will get some good answers for December specifically, but I thought you might like to check out the responses for November while you wait.

I've personally been to Rome in March, June, and July. I liked the first half of March the best; the weather was sometimes crisp, but never hot and there were few tourists, relatively speaking. I went to St. Peter's in the morning and there were maybe 15 other people in there with me. It was magnificent. Another morning, I awoke early and made my way to the Trevi Fountain where nothing awaited me but the gurgling water of the great fountain itself. I'm not sure if this kind of serenity can be achieved any time of year, in the early morning (7-7:30AM), or not; I've never tried it in the summer.

But whenever you go, I hope you have a wonderful time!

Hi
for historical weather info you can check websites like wunderground.com
or weather.com

Last Dec around Xmas and New Year's, Rome had bitterly cold weather, but those very low temps were considered unusual. On the other hand, when it's your own trip, "unusual" doesn't make you like it any better!

I was in Rome late Sept/early Oct, and loved it.The temps were about 80F during the day. That's not to say that Dec can't be enjoyable.
