Rome weather is Mediterranean by definition with quite mild and rainy winters and beautifully hot summers with an average temperature of 30°C with little rain. In July and August, on average there is rain on just two or three days a month though strangely almost twice as much rain falls in August as in July. Air-conditioning is absolutely essential in hotels as the nights can feel very warm and during the day hats and bottled water are vital especially when queuing in unshaded areas during the hottest of the Rome weather.
Assumption Day, 15 August, is a national holiday in Italy and tends to be the beginning of a mass exodus by the locals who tend to start their vacations then. All but the very smallest hotels will still be open but some restaurants may close then until the end of the month, however queues for the main attractions, especially the Vatican, will still be long
There is a little snow at some time during most winters but it doesn’t normally settle although there are major snowfalls 4 or 5 times a century.
