Rain totals at least three inches every month and hits a high point of more than four inches in November. Rain days hit a high point of ten in November too.
Rainfall reaches its bottom in June and July, with June seeing 0.6 inches on average and July only slightly more.
Rain days average about 2 per month.
Weather patterns for Rome clearly show that the wet season of October thru Jan, combined with low temperatures, is not an ideal time to go to Rome on holiday.
Feb and March fare only somewhat better as rain starts to decline and temperatures steadily increase.
Rome is best visited in May, June and September for anyone that enjoys touring a city with daytime temperatures in the 70s, though rainfall starts to climb in Sep.
Anyone preferring hotter weather will find that July and August are the warmest months to visit.
