Things to do this August in Rome - Its summertime in Rome and usually the month of August is when the locals take their holidays too. However not to worry there is still plently going on and all the monuments and museums will remain open. Actually August is a great time to be in the city. The weather can be hot but no more so than July and usually the second part of the month temperatures will begin to drop a little more.

As many of the locals are not working you will find some shops and restuarants closed but still plenty will remain open. There is less traffic too so you will enjoy a tranquility that the rest of the year you will not find in the Italian capital, less crowds in the Metro and also and importantly fewer lines to the major sites.


So lets have a look at what you can see whats on in Rome this August.
