Rome in November.

by Jayarep

Hello all!
We are going to be in Rome in the last week of November,hence,my question:
What would the weather be like.What clothes would we need,in terms of the woolens.Should they be real heavy.Is it going to be very cold,hence layers.Does it rain in the last week of November.Since we plan to walk,if the weather is not too unpleasant,what kind of footwear we need to bring.
Anything else you may like to add,which I may have left out.
Incidentally does it snow in Rome.
Cheers,
jayarep.

It is virtually impossible to predict what the weather will be like in November. However, www.weatherunderground.com will give you historical information charts on the weather for Rome, so you can have a look for a general idea. Very heavy woollens are not a great idea but rather wear layers i.e. t-shirt, then a light woollen, then a fleece and/or a waterproof outer layer. Good comfortable sensible footwear, preferably waterproof 'cos that will be warmer. You say you plan to walk - does this mean serious walking in the countryside or just walking in the city and not using public transport?

Re: Rome in November.

The previous poster is right - weather is impossible to predict. You may find this helpful though:

http://www.knowital.com/weather/rome/

I plugged in the dates for last week of November and it showed average daytime highs around 60 F. - although that could swing a bit. You're also likely to see some rain, and nights will be quite chilly.

Layers are indeed your best bet as you can add/shed as the day warms/cools or is wet/dry. Bring an umbrella! I've seen pictures of snow in Rome but would guess that's very, very rare (if ever) in November so no worries there.

As the previous poster mentioned, wear sturdy, comfortable shoes with a good tread. You will be walking on cobblestones, uneven pavement, possibly even some dirt, and climbing lots and lots of steps. Those surfaces of polished marble or stone (like the Spanish Steps) are very slippery when wet so a good tread on the bottom is a must. To heck with fashion - comfort is much more important!

DO walk though - even if it's raining. Rome is a city to see on foot and the Central Storico (the center where most of the attractions are) is more compact than people realize. We didn't take public transit or a cab even once - it was just too much fun to wander!

I spent the first week of November in Rome some years back. The weather was warm and sunny.

Travel Tips for Rome

ATM - Cheat Sheet

by irvbur

Although ATM machines are to be found all over, the transaction is always in local currency. BE PREPARED. For example, do not go up to an ATM and think you'd like to withdraw $500 worth of local currency. You first must know the amount in local currency that $500 will buy. I always carry a currency cheat sheet when travelling. In addition to ATM transactions, it's also easier to bargain and make purchases.

Magnificent left overs!

by Jenniflower

This marble colum is also found at the same exhibition as the drawing in the tip above.

The Roman colums are something special too.

So much detail, effort and time goes into it, nowadays everything is so mechanised, with slight regard for intricate detail and the craftsman's own hand.

Can we say we have advanced as a civilisation? I am not sure we can.

We have lost far too much along the way.

Balloon Rides in Villa Borghese - Suspended

by icunme

DON'T KNOW WHA HOPPEN BUT THE BALLOON RIDE NO LONGER FLOATS - CHECK THEIR WEBSITE FOR A NEW SCHEDULE. Too bad - we were in the Park today, May 7, and it was gone - the area was in bad condition. The website says they are "suspended" for the winter.
Another very recent addition to the facilities of the Villa is a balloon, showing the decoration of the first balloons used by the Montgolfier brothers in 1783. A safety cable ensures the balloon does not move from its mooring site.

Will pick up a schedule and post rates and more details soon. Click the photo for the full photo view****

Electric Mini-Bus - Buy your ticket on-board

by icunme

These are the spiffiest new buses in Rome!! You can conveniently buy your ticket right there on the bus so you won't see those transportation ticket-enforcers here. Plus, I've never seen it too crowded and it arrives/departs often. The #116 is my daily ticket to ride as the it starts/ends at Via Veneto/Villa Borghese and it goes all through the best stops in the historic center - Barbarini, Spagna, Tritone (for Trevi), Via del Corso, Campo di Fiori, Via Guilia (at the Tiber where you will pass underneath the specatacular ivy covered bridge of Michaelangelo), then crosses over the bridge just below Castel Sant Angelo and ends by the Vatican/Gianicolo Station - its a lovely ride to then hop on the nearby bus going up to the top of Gianocolo.
My fabvorite mini grey electric bus winds all through Villa Borghese and circles near the Borghese Museum - exits Villa Borthese at San Paolo del Brasile (Via Veneto) before arriving at the last stop around the corner on Pincio. A bus ride in Rome doesn't get any better than this. I don't like the Metro - use it only where I have to - but here is a good deal in Rome for 16 Euro you get a week's pass on public transportation.

Ice-cream

by sandysmith about Various Gelato

Of course you have to have at least one ice-cream a day in Italy and as many combinations as possible.
Favourites well - amaretto and cookies, mars and bounty, profietole, tiramasu, trifle and many others! Each geleato seemed to have different varieites, really yummy.
