What to expect in Rome

Rome is the capital of Italy and the Lazio region of the country. It is the country's largest and most populated community, and the fourth most populous city in the European Union by population within the city limits. Rome enjoys a Mediterranean climate with cool and humid winters and hot and dry summers. Its average annual temperature is above 20 degrees Celsius during the day and 10 degrees Celsius at night which gives it a milder climate compared to other cities in the region. Average relative humidity is about 75%, varying from 72% in July and 77% in November. Consumer prices in Rome are relatively lower than in Melbourne, sans restaurant and rent prices which are quite higher in the former. Rome is eight hours behind Melbourne, so visitors should note of that and adjust time-tellers upon arrival to the city.
