Rome's coast, which has the true Mediterranean climate, doesn't experience as large temperature swings as what Rome city does. In winter, temperatures along the coast are warmer (due to the immediate influence of the sea) than inland and in Summer, temperatures along the coast are cooler than inland.The closer one gets to the Apennines the larger still can be the temperature swing in winter.
Summer is the season of more festivals and parties in Rome. You will find Romans eating, drinking and socializing in the Piazzas and cobbled alleyways of Rome.
Autumn in Rome can be quite mild. It's usually only around the beginning to middle of November that we'll start digging through our winter clothes. Until the middle of October it's usually still "dry" while the end of October and November sees the beginning of winter rains and chillier temperatures.
