Things To Do In Rome
Rome is one of the world's most beautiful ancient cities and offers a wide variety of tourist activities. Popular activities to do in Rome include:

Look at art in the Capitoline museums, they hold the amazing paintings of artists like Titian, Veronese and many others
Visit historical sites like the Colosseum, the Pantheon and the Roman Forum
Eat! Italy is known around the world for inventing the popular foods, like pizza, lasagna and pasta. You can have a chance to taste authentic dishes made right in the heart of Italy

Wind Systems: [3]
The climate is dominated by westerly winds from the Atlantic
Southerly winds can bring days above freezing in the winter
Northerly winds can bring drops in weather, sometimes accompanied by clear weather with relatively low humidity
Latitude: [1]
Moscow is towards the north and much farther from the equator than Rome
Winters go down to -11 and summers can reach up to about 19° to 20°
Air Masses: [2]
Most of Russia is covered by a continental polar air mass, making the climate of Moscow mostly mild and dry
another sort of close air mass is the
Ocean Currents: [7]
Ocean do not affect Moscow very much as Moscow is inland and nowhere close to an ocean or even a particularly

Altitude: [1]
Altitude ranges from 13-20m above sea level
Weather is not effected by this
Mountain Barriers: [4.5]
The Alps in the north of Italy
Barrier against Arctic winds blowing south from the north
Bodies of Water [7]
Rome is near the Mediterranean Sea
Warm water, wind blows into Rome
Produces stable, sub-tropical climate
Things To Do In Moscow
As the capital city of Russia, Moscow is bound to have amazing places to vist and fun things to do:
the number one attraction in Moscow: the Ostankino Tower (the tallest building before the CN Tower. Is now the 3rd tallest building in the world and has held the title of tallest structure in Europe for 46 years
historical sites such as the Moscow Kremlin Walls and Towers

Local Climate Factors
Bodies of Water: [4]
the Moscow River runs through the city
keeps the land around relatively even, helping it mantain the temperature between -11 to around 20
Mountain Barriers: [6]
east Moscow Mountain although not much information as to whether it actually blocks anything
Altitude: [5]
Moscow is approximately 140m above sea level
the moderately high altitude just makes it cooler than it would be on a lower altitude
Pretty ugly ain't it?
Buuuut... its one of the
largest airports in NA
In the end, we would suggest y'all to go to Rome because the category we picked the two cities from were "Historical Sites" and Rome has many more. Also, the overall climate in Rome is much nicer than that of Moscow. In the summer, the temperature of Rome is warmer than that of Moscow, and it also rains less in Rome in the summer. In addition, Rome has a summer dry climate while Moscow is the opposite with a summer wet climate. So during the summer months that we will be going to Rome, we will be able to enjoy more historic sites with better temperature and better weather.
Some of Moscow's natural vegetation include many different types of trees like broad-leaf birch, and northern pine, fir and spruce as Moscow is in the mixed-forest zone. However, the actual original vegetation in the city's territories is almost extinct except for some of the oldest gardens where some of the rare original plants still grow.

All of Russia's agriculture isn't exactly the best as it had suffered a severe transition decline when had changed from being a command economy to a market-oriented system. They had ten years of decline and began to finally show improvement a couple of years ago.

The most important grains grown in Russia are soft wheat and barley. The main oilseed is undoubtedly sunflower seed.
Rome is also in the mixed forest zone, but is also part Mediterranean scrub land. The low soft-leaved scrubs are often adapted to the salt and wind that blows off the seacosts, like the one close to Rome. The scrubland can also include dense thickets of evergreen sclerophyll shrubs and small trees.

Unlike, Moscow, Rome has been very successful with its farming. They grow a variety of different crops such as artichoke, mustard, chives, leeks, celery, basil, parsnip, mint, rue, asparagus, radish, cucumber, gourd, onions, olives, parsley, cabbage, lettuce, garlic, figs, grapes, plums, mulberries, and peaches.
Rome is a relatively hilly city. It has seven main hills which are aptly named "The Seven Hills of Rome" These seven hills include Capitoline, Palantine and Caelian. Thes hills, however do not reach that high, at the top of some, it is only 20m above sea level, these do not affect the climate

Also, there is the River Tiber that bisects Rome. There are many stories surrounding this river that many archaeologist believed used to be possibly half the width it is now! That is erosion in work. This River, however does not affect Romes climate either, it is relatively small.
Moscow is spread over the joint of Smolensko-Moskovsky Hills, Moskvoretsko-Oksky Plain, and Meschersky Lowland. Smolensko-Moskovsky Hills lie in the North-West of the city. They are characterized by smoothed out relief with the absolute elevation of 175-185 meters. Moskvoretsko-Oksky Plain is located in the South of Moscow and is called Teplostansky Hills which have erosion surface and feature the absolute elevation levels of 200-250 meters. They are deeply divided by ravines and gullies. Meschersky Lowland is sited in the east of the city. It is a flat sandy low ground with the absolute elevation levels of up to 160 meters, where pine forests are widespread. There are some peat-marshes over the area.
