It turns out that November is a perfect time to visit the eternal city. While the days were shorter and cooler than our last visit, it’s still comfortable walking weather. And the crowds have begun to thin out just a little bit. The city is just beginning to think about some Christmas decoration, although that gets underway in earnest in December.
We managed to avoid most of what rain there was and experienced some beautiful blue skies without the searing heat of summer. Our focus was exploring some more sights that are off the beaten track, although we would also explore key areas like the Colosseum and Piazza di Spagna – it would have been rude not to!
And thanks to Elyssa at Romewise, I even got to try out some seasonal Roman culinary delights including wonderful Carciofi and Puntarelle. I’ll definitely be back to try some more.
