"It's very hot in the summer" Rome Warnings Or Dangers Tip by fairy_dust

Rome Warnings and Dangers: 523 reviews and 232 photos

In the summer, the temperatures can go over 40 degrees Celcius. The temperature is usually cool in the mornings, but gets extremely hot in the afternoons. Definitely wear sunscreen and drink lots of water to stay hydrated. A few people in my group had problems with sunburn and dehydration, but these problems can be avoided.

Just a note on water - if you want normal water, you have to ask for non-carbonated water. If you don't, they'll probably give you carbonated water, which tastes yucky (although if you're extremely thirsty, you probably won't care...). If you don't like carbonated water, always ask for "Acqua no-fizzante" (non-carbonated water).
