Summer has arrived. Since Monday it’s been really hot here in Rome (all over Italy in fact). It’s been in the high 20s (Celsius) all week and does not look to be letting up according to TempoItalia. I’m still horrible at the conversions after all these years, but I know that over 24 Celsius is hot! No basically it’s 80s to 90s Fahrenheit range this week.
This photo shows air conditioning units that dot the Guardia di Finanza building on the via Nomentana. They’re pretty old school looking, but at least they have them! I don’t have air conditioning in the US either, never grew up with it, but there are definitely times I would not mind it now! You won’t find air conditioning widespread here and even where they have it, don’t expect any super cold blasts like in the US. I find they’re normally during on just enough to cool the room a little.
