If you are taking holidays in Monte Verde, Rome, then you could not have chosen a better district of this amazing city. Strictly speaking, Monte Verde is divided into two parts, with the Vecchio part being characterised by three and four storey tall apartment buildings. Self catering accommodation in Monte Verde provides access to the city and its tourist sites, whilst at the same time being close by to one of the largest parks in the city.
Monte Verde is ideal for those seeking a more relaxed stay whilst visiting Rome, and seems to offer a laid back and unrushed way of life. One of the main attractions is Villa Pamphili, a park which seems to attract joggers and fitness fanatics. Walking around it may well become a daily routine during a stay. Other than that, the immediate area itself does not offer many must see or do sites, or activities. It might be important to note that public transport into the historic sections can be difficult to come by.
The visitor to Rome is spoilt by the sheer amount of historical sites to visit, as well as numerous museums, art galleries, and much more besides. It is difficult to know exactly where to start, although it goes without saying, that a visit to the Colosseum is a must. This huge structure is still awe inspiring to this day. Whether you are religious or not, a day trip to the Vatican also comes highly recommended. Not only is this the seat of power for the Catholic church, but it also acts as part repository, part museum for thousands of pieces of art and sculpture. Surprisingly for many, the gardens are also quite large, and a guided tour around these is a nice way to spend an afternoon.
This part of Italy has a Mediterranean climate, and so holidays in Monte Verde can be taken at almost any time of year. That said, the spring and autumn months are considered to be the best, as during the summer, the peak temperatures and humidity of July and August can be a bit much, often hitting the thirties degrees Celsius. If you do decide to visit during that time, it may be worthwhile checking to see if the apartment has air conditioning. The average rainfall amount for this area would be around 15 inches per year.
Most tourists visiting Rome, will arrive by air. Rome has two main airports, which are the GB Pastine airport in Ciampino (CIA) and the Leonardo de Vinci airport in Fiumicino (FCO). Fiumicino deals with the major airlines such as British Airways who connect from London Gatwick (LGW), London Heathrow (LHR) and Manchester (MAN). The airport in Ciampino has the budget airlines such as Ryan Air and easyJet.
