Your Rome City, answered

October and April are great months to visit. You’ll avoid the crowds of summer but will still get to enjoy some warmth.

There's nothing quite as lovely as walking around the city with a gelato in hand. Head to the Montesacro district for the best varieties.

Trastevere is where the party's at when it comes to latin beats. Around Campo di' Fiori and Navona there are also plenty of pubs.
