Any time is the right time to immerse yourself in the beauty of the Eternal City, but visiting Rome in autumn and winter is perhaps something even more special.
Famous, for instance, are the traditional Roman “ottobrate” (sunny and mild days, perfect for day trips), but from November onwards, it’s truly enjoyable to stroll through the city’s wonders, discovering surprises in every corner.
Of course, choosing the right city area as your starting and ideal arrival point is essential. If you’re considering where to stay among the most characteristic neighborhoods for your autumn and winter Roman holiday, we invite you to Hotel Oceania!
We are located between Via del Quirinale and the Teatro dell’Opera, the true heart of traditional Roman culture, the kind you might associate with Ettore Petrolini and Aldo Fabrizi.
Here, you will find a “place of living,” as we like to think of it, ideal for your experience.

Discover Rome in Autumn and Winter
A digital encyclopedia probably wouldn’t be enough to talk about Rome; we don’t claim to be exhaustive, but we want to give you some ideas to spark your curiosity.
For this reason, we’ve thought of some characteristic itineraries and must-see stops for your culinary pleasure. Be inspired!
Start with a walk to reach the nearby Quirinal Hill, the ancient residence of the Popes and now the seat of the President of the Italian Republic. The next stop is the Trevi Fountain, one of Rome’s symbols, where we recommend tossing a coin to ensure your return to the Eternal City. From here, proceed to the Spanish Steps, famous for the Barcaccia Fountain, exclusive shopping, and the staircase leading to Trinità dei Monti, where you can enjoy a panoramic and enchanting view. The itinerary continues with a visit to the Pantheon, one of the city’s oldest and best-preserved monuments, and finally arrives at Piazza Navona, famous for its three baroque fountains and works of art.
A journey through the sacred and profane soul of the city, where the old and the new coexist perfectly. Start with a walk to Campo de’ Fiori and its bustling daily market. Then, head to the Jewish Ghetto, one of Rome’s historic neighborhoods, known for its architecture, synagogues, and rich history. The next stop takes you to Tiber Island, an islet in the Tiber River with a suggestive atmosphere and a wonderful panoramic view of the surrounding bridges and palaces.
