Fall is one of the best seasons to visit Rome due to its pleasant weather and mesmerizing scenery. Rome in fall is poetic and not so chaotic.

The Eternal City itself is worth visiting every season. Yet, its gorgeous fall colors make it especially enchanting in the fall time, from September to November.

The cost for traveling during this off-season period is certainly more affordable. The temperature is ideal, and it is best to dress in layers, as it tends to be cold in the morning and evening. The best thing is that you can enjoy Rome without the unbearable heat and the touristic crowds. Romans also seem to be less aggressive as the summer is over.

Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness, Close bosom-friend of the maturing sun; Conspiring with him how to load and bless With fruit the vines that round the thatch-eves run; To bend with apples the moss'd cottage-trees, And fill all fruit with ripeness to the core; To swell the gourd, and plump the hazel shells With a sweet kernel; to set budding more, And still more, later flowers for the bees, Until they think warm days will never cease, For Summer has o'er-brimm'd their clammy cells. - "Ode to Autumn" by John Keats (1795-1821)

Some of the best places to enjoy fall in Rome include Lungotevere, a boulevard running alongside river Tiber; public parks such as Villa Sciarra, Villa Doria Pamphili, and the gardens of Villa Borghese; and the neighborhood Trastevere, famous for its ivy-covered buildings and laid-back lifestyle.
