5 Reasons for a Rome November Getaway (with an added bonus!)

Rome Colosseum

What do you want to see when you visit Rome? Does the Colosseum come to mind, in all its gory, yet fascinating, history? Or perhaps joining the jovial crowd around the enchanting Trevi Fountain while devouring a melting gelato. On the topic of tasty treats, what about the assortment of decadent food Rome has to offer – so much more than pizza and pasta (although, those aren’t bad choices either!).

Rome is a mecca of sights, sounds, and tastes for both the new and frequent visitor. The summer months are brimming with travelers visiting this exciting city, but November brings a different flavor. The city is a little quieter, the locals are back from their own summer vacations, and a lighter, festive air arises. Whether you have visited Rome before, or are looking to experience the Eternal City for the first time, November can be the perfect month for you.

Close your eyes, hear and smell the chestnuts roasting at the end of cobblestoned alleys, and drift off to your Rome adventure. For inspiration, we’ve come up with five reasons that will get your senses stimulated for Rome in November:

NUMBER 5 – CRISP, COOL WEATHER.

Rome Old Marketplace#5 – The weather may be cooler, but you can still find beautiful sunny days when visiting Rome in November. Many of Rome’s greatest sights are outdoors, and strolling through the ancient city is a fruitful journey in itself. Pack a jacket and be glad it’s not blistering hot like it was this recent summer. Plan to walk through the ancient roads of Rome – like the sprawling Roman Forum, where Julius Caesar and great Roman minds once strolled along, where remnants of important government buildings and temples played a pivotal part of the city’s development.

NUMBER 4 – FEWER CROWDS.

Rome cobblestone street#4 – By November, the peak season crowds have dispersed, giving a little breathing room while meandering through the city. While Rome’s great attractions are always in demand, the city gains a little elbow room. You can feel more at ease getting the right angle and taking the perfect photo of the Pantheon’s oculus, take your time with a glass (or two) of Italian wine, and gain a calmer, yet still energetic, appreciation of the city.

NUMBER 3 – WINE, OLIVES, AND TRUFFLES.

Tuscany Vineyard#3 – Late Autumn/Early Winter is the season for many tasty offerings. You may see an abundance of the season’s regional fare in Rome’s flourishing markets, or plan a day trip to catch the magic of the grape and olive harvest (on the downswing of the season), or catch aromatic truffle fairs full swing in November.

NUMBER 2 – “CULTURE” TRAVEL.

Theater#2 – Beyond the commonly known sights of Rome, November is an excellent time to catch the new culture season for Theatre and Opera. Also throughout November, two much anticipated events occur – Romaeuropa, a variety of artistic performances found throughout the city at different venues, as well as a week-long jazz festival. What better way to immerse yourself in the city that has inspired so many people than through artistic performance.

NUMBER 1 – ITALIAN FOOD!

Rome Carciofo Artichoke#1 –  What can we say, Italian food is timeless despite season. November brings savory artichokes, delightful porcini mushrooms, floral broccoletti, hearty pumpkin, and divinely produced parmigiano-reggiano cheese – all especially tasty Fall foods in Rome. Many restaurants will serve excellent seasonal fare, though shopping through Rome’s local markets – an entertaining excursion in itself – and planing an Italian-inspired culinary adventure in a fully equipped home kitchen is a satisfying and unparalleled activity. Do as the Romans do, and end your meal with a warm espresso and lively conversation.
