Buy items to take home and enjoy some local delicacies by visiting the Campo Dei Fiori Markets.

It is worth thinking about the weather when travelling to Rome. The summer months are very hot and snow may fall in January/February. Spring or autumn is a good time to travel to the ‘Eternal City’ for a private tour of Rome.
