Rome is a beautiful city anytime of year, but visiting in January has its own unique charms. For starters, the Christmas decorations are still up, so the city has a festive atmosphere. From cosy cafes to world-class art galleries, there's plenty to keep you occupied - not to mention the excellent food and wine on offer. January is also one of the quieter months in terms of tourism, so you can avoid the crowds and enjoy a more relaxed vacation.
And, prices for hotels and other attractions are typically lower in January than they are during peak tourist season.Though the average January temperature in Rome is a mild 50 degrees Fahrenheit, it can get chilly— particularly at night, be sure to pack a coat, hat, and scarf.
