When to go?

Anytime, but September, October, April and May have the best weather - sunny skies but not too hot. However, they are also high season (and busy). It’s very hot in July and August, but also vibrant, with free open-air festivals. In August some businesses close (though not in the tourist centre).

Save to favouritesPrintMailCasa MontaniCasa Montani overlooks Porta del Popolo, the old Roman gateway that was once the main entrance to the city for visitors from the north and which leads onto the spectacular disc of Piazza del Popolo. The casa, tucked away on the third floor, is one of Romeís new breed of discreet townhouse conversions and has been in the family for generations: Giuseppe Montaniís great-grandfather bought the place directly from the builder in 1916. Today, the casa is not a hotel but an intimate upper-range guesthouse. Itís a labour of love, designed by architect Liliana Sciacca and decorated by its French-Italian owners with custom-made furniture (such as glossy lacquered desks) and original paintings by Giuseppe Butera. The lobby-reception has walls hand-painted by Philippe Gandon in bold black and white stripes that call to mind 1930s chic, or Audrey Hepburn photographed by Cecil Beaton. For the standard of comfort, for the design and fittings, for the location and for Rome prices are reasonable - a great getaway for families, friends or couples, who want a home from home in the Eternal City.
