The best travelling time in terms of price would usually be midweek and at other times when prices are low - usually due to the lack of general popularity of these particular travel times. Our tip would be to avoid school holidays, Friday departures and Sunday returns to keep prices down.

The weather in Rome in the winter months can be varied - it may be cold, mild, wet or windy. However, you can expect temperatures to be slightly if not significantly higher than those in London. Summers are generally hot and dry.
