What To Do in Rome During Winter

January 04, 2021
Rome is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. That's already a given! But when it's winter? And the whole Italian capital is covered in snow? Now that's a sight for sore eyes right there! Though it actually rarely snows in Rome, it does happen. The last time was back in 2018, so there's no reason to believe that you won't get to see snow in Rome for a long time. In any case, with or without snow, winter is still as cold as ever here in Rome. And there are plenty of things to do here to keep your minds off it!

See The Iconic Landmarks in Snow

Imagine it: the Colosseum, the Vatican, the Trevi Fountain, and more... all covered in snow! That alone is worth all the effort of traveling all the way to the Italian capital, no matter where in the world you're coming from. Even though, as already mentioned, it actually rarely snows in Rome, in the off chance that you're here when that happens, get your cameras and phones ready! You won't want to miss seeing and capturing every bit of a whiter Rome! Somehow, the beautiful gardens here look more spectacular. And the iconic monuments? Unlike what they've looked like before!

Relax in A Roman Spa

If you've ever seen a Fellini film, particularly either '8½' or 'La Dolce Vita,' you'll know that the special spas, with their rustic thermal baths, are something to behold. With great halls submerged in warm water, you'll feel as if you're bathing in the heated canals of Venice. Such is the beauty and the relaxation you'll get in a Roman spa. And when it's extremely cold out during the peak winter days, there's no better way to stay warm in the city than going to one. It's a uniquely Roman thing to do, one you shouldn't pass on while you're here!

Enjoy Some Artichokes

Out of so many delicious Italian dishes, what makes the artichoke so special in Rome? Well, they're actually quite the seasonal delicacy in the Italian capital during winter. Prepared a la Romana throughout many of the noteworthy restaurants in the city, this seemingly mundane in-season vegetable is served with lots of flavor and a few exotic spices. In fact, it even becomes quite the in-demand dish among the many locals in the city. With how well the Italians can make just about anything taste delicious, you won't think of the artichoke the same way ever again after your winter trip to Rome.

Go Shopping

Everyone knows that Rome is one of the fashion capitals of the world, right? So should it really surprise anyone that shopping is a must-do in the city? Most especially during winter! Since the coldest season of the year falls on the holidays, most shopping districts in the Italian capital tend to get crazy with their sales. Almost all of the leftover pieces from the major designers to the humble boutiques want to empty their racks before winter is through. This is to make way for the spring/summer collections that will arrive just in time for when the warmer seasons come up!

Drink Wine

As the saying goes, 'When in Rome, do as the Romans do!' And what the Romans do, practically every single day of the year but most especially during winter is to drink wine! Wine is like water to the Italians; you won't find a dinner table without a bottle or two. They even have specific ways of drinking wine too! But what makes wine in winter so special? Whether it's light white wine or a deep dark red that's aged oh so well, this drink warms you up in more ways than one. There's no better way to stay warm in the winter than with a nice glass by the fireplace!

Watch The Sunset

Picture it—you're in the most scenic area in Rome, with a view so beautiful it ought to be on a postcard, and underneath is a snow-covered city that just sparkles. And as the sun goes down, the view becomes even more stunning! That's quite a way to end the day in Rome during the winter, right? Fortunately, amidst the many neighborhoods of Rome, there are a couple of hills you can climb on, perch yourself on the top, and just watch the sunset. Now that's a view unlike any other, no matter how long you've been in the city!

It may not snow that often in Rome, but the city is extremely beautiful during winter nonetheless. And whether you see a snow-covered Italian capital or not, there's still a ton of great things to do in the city during this cold season!

Rome is known for its many luxury homes so there's no reason why you should get one for yourself while you're here during winter!
