“Is August a good time to visit Rome?” This is probably the question we get asked the most (after, “What’s the difference between gelato and ice cream?”). The former question is legitimate since many guide books for the past decade have been spreading false truths about the city being a desolate wasteland, I am legend-style.

Rome in August

While it’s true that many locals do take their vacation in August and many places close, it’s equally true that the trend has been shifting. In recent years, an increasing number of businesses, including restaurants, stays open for part or all of August. It’s increasingly easier to find great places to eat in Rome for the entire month of August, and even on the proverbial peak of August closures, Ferragosto––August 15.

Every year we like to update our list of August closures. We’re happy to report that many favorite places in Rome that normally close in August will be open after this disastrous year of loss. Let’s help the restaurant business get back on its feet!
