Average time to visit

Rome enjoys a typically Mediterranean climate. Summers (from June to September) are hot and dry with temperatures often soaring to 37°C. High humidity is also common, particularly in July and August. Winter tends to be moderate, at least by northern European standards, with temperatures averaging around 10°C to 15°C between December and February. Spring (March to June) and early autumn (September and October) are the best times to visit Rome, with lovely blue skies and mild temperatures. November and December are the two wettest months.

Starting in mid-June, the summer rush really picks up, and from July to mid-September the Rome teems with visitors. August is the worst month: Not only does it get uncomfortably hot, muggy, and crowded, but the entire country goes on vacation at least from August 15 to the end of the month (many Italians take off the entire month). Many hotels, restaurants, and shops are closed.

Such a homely hotel. Fresh and bright in the summer, and warm and cosy in the colder months. Two beautifully decorated reception rooms and a library filled with tapestry's and painting of the family ancestors.

The terrace garden at the back of the hotel is an oasis of calm from the busy streets of central Rome.


Mrs Jennifer Morley (Guest)

"Villa Spalletti Trivelli was just gorgeous and worth every penny! I would definitely go back there at the drop of a hat". Mrs. M, 11th July 2011.


Fiona Bickmore (Staff)

A refreshing change to a lot of city hotels. This wonderful old palace with its luscious gardens is tucked away in the middle of Rome so access to the city and all its delights couldn't be easier. There is little spa at the bottom of the hotel if you are feeling a bit tense otherwise you can sit in splendour in the library or one of the other rooms which are all overflowing with huge tapestries, paintings and lavish ornaments. Rome is a great destination for a city break or why not combine it with somewhere else in Italy?
