Where should I stay in Rome for vacation?
Where to stay in Rome (for first-time visitors)
How many days should I stay in Rome?
– The Short Answer. With almost no exception, we recommend that you spend a minimum of 3 days in Rome. You won't be able to see everything in this short a span, but you will be able to see a good portion of the highlights. Plan on spending 4+ days in Rome if your total time in Italy is two weeks or more.
What should you not wear in Rome?
The second part of the answer has got to do with the Rome dress code for churches and especially the Vatican and main basilicas. In churches, shorts and mini skirts are not allowed (see below) so if you are planning on an afternoon of sightseeing with a lot of church hopping, shorts are not a good idea.
The best time to visit Rome is from October to April when most of the tourist crowds have dissipated and room rates are lower. Although you'll need a warm coat, weather this time of year hardly ever dips below freezing.
There are two simple answers to your burning question of how many days should you spend in Rome. Four or seven days. To add context, if you are doing a multi-city Italian journey, you should allocate at least 4 days to Rome if you arrive early on day 1 and leave late on day 4. Otherwise, consider 5 days.
