Other important information

CLIMATE & AVERAGE TEMPERATURES
Rome, Italy 
November is a great time to visit Rome. The weather is mild and the city sees an average of seven hours of sunshine a day. This gives you plenty of time to explore this fascinating city. But with highs of 18°C and lows of 8°C, bring a jacket and warmer clothes for the chillier evenings. 
 
Lisbon, Portugal
Lisbon is mild and relatively sunny in November. As Portugal enjoys a subtropical Mediterranean climate, even the coolest months remain fairly mild. The average temperature still reaches as high as 19°C and at night can dip as low as 11°C. The average sea temperature is about 18°C, so if the weather is pleasant you could still head down to the beach for a swim.
 
FLIGHTS
