Rome & Vatican FAQs
When is the best time to visit Rome?
Rome is attractive, fabulous whatever the weather, and above all, timeless. That being said, while the Eternal City is popular year round, most would agree that the best time to visit is from September to mid-May when the weather is as moderate as the crowds are.
How many days should I spend in Rome?
Like any other trip, there’s no one-size-fits-all trip length for a trip to Rome. Assuming that Rome is not your only stop in Italy, the minimum we recommend for first-timers is 4 nights/3 full days. While if you are planning to visit only Rome you could consider a 7-day itinerary and take some day trips.
What day trips can I take from Rome?
While the Eternal City can easily keep you busy for days, venturing out of Rome is the perfect way to explore other amazing sights all within day trip range. In the hilltop town of Tivoli, you can take in two World Heritage Sites, the Emperor Hadrian’s colossal Villa and The Renaissance Villa d’Este. Southern Tuscany and many vineyards are close enough for a fabulous wine trip. And for archaeology lovers just a stone’s throw from Rome lies the archaeological site of Ostia Antica known by experts as “The Better Pompeii.”
What are best things to do in Rome with kids?
Visiting Italy’s capital with kids is an unforgettable family adventure. As simple as that. Already the obvious sights like the Colosseum, the Trevi Fountain, or the Catacombs are cool spots to see with your clan, but there is so much more to explore. Even children bored by art will enjoy Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel ceiling in the Vatican Museums and Bernini’s gorgeous artworks at the Borghese Gallery.
Did you know that?
The first ever shopping mall was built in Rome between 107 and 110 AD by Emperor Trajan and you can still visit today!

St. Peter’s Basilica inside the Vatican City is the largest cathedral in the world.
