For centuries, Rome has had a major influence on Italian, European and world affairs, and it could be argued that even since Roman times, it has been a popular tourist destination! The city has developed over the course of hundreds of years, and its piazzas or squares play a vital role. One of the most famous of these is the Piazza Navona, and people choosing to stay here will be truly able to soak up the atmosphere. A holiday rental apartment in Piazza Navona is ideally placed at the heart of one of Rome’s greatest attractions, and comes fully equipped and furnished with all the mod cons that help to give it a home away from home feel.
For most people on holiday in Piazza Navona, the emphasis will be more on sight seeing than it will be on taking part in leisure activities. With that said, it is still possible to do certain things such as taking an early morning jog in the morning, and go for plenty of long walks. As with any city in the world, those that look carefully will be able to locate gyms and indoor leisure centres should they so desire.
The sheer wealth of culture and history in Rome is quite amazing. It seems that no matter where one looks, there is another astonishing piece of architecture, statue or work of art to be admired. The baroque style Piazza Navona is often listed amongst the top 10 attractions that Rome has to offer, and its restaurants and bars make a pleasant way to pass an evening. Some of the other highlights of a holiday in Piazza Navona include visiting the world famous Coliseum, taking a tour of the Vatican, walking through the Roman Forum, seeing the Pantheon and browsing around the nearby Campo dei Flori Markets.
People who choose to stay in self catering accommodation in Piazza Navona can expect to enjoy a Mediterranean climate during their time in Rome. This is typified by mild, humid winters and warm dry summers. The city can be visited at any time of the year, although the peak summer months of July and August can see average daily high temperatures of 30 degrees Celsius, which may be uncomfortable for some. April, May, September and October find the temperatures still above 22 degrees, but with fewer maximum peaks. The winter months can see day time average lows of 3 degrees, and whilst snowfall can occur, it would be a rare day that it settled. Rainfall is heaviest in November and December, with over 100mm per month falling.
Rome is served by a handful of airports, with the largest one of Leonardo da Vinci-Fiumicino Airport (FCO) offering the greater range of flight options.
