Peak season:

Although Rome is always crowded – in one way or another – the major tourism season starts in June and ends in August. These are the hottest months of the year, and they’re also the best for outdoor exploring since very little rainfall can be expected. Finding cheap flights to Rome during this time, however, can be a real challenge.

Off season:

The cheapest flights to Rome can often be found during the months of November through February, albeit you may have to deal with some rain and lower daytime temperatures. Alternatively, you can also book a cheap flight to Rome for the months of January through March, which is when accommodation prices and flight tickets are often more affordable, and tourist crowds also tend to be thinner.
