What time of year to visit Rome?

My wife and I are considering visiting Rome for a week's sightseeing some time next year. We like warm weather but neither of us like it too hot or humid and we would ideally not want to visit in the school holidays as I presume it will be more expensive and exceptionally crowded. When would nbe a good time to visit?

I really like April in Rome; it tends to be a bit busier in the week after Easter.

We were there in May for a week, and had excellent weather. Sunny every day, warm but not hot, decent crowds, so I recommend May.

May. The wisteria and/or bougainvillea is in bloom all over the place.

Late March was perfect for us last year. Not hot, not cold.

May or September used to be our favorite months...we are now considering mid/late April or mid/late October. Obviously we will be chancing more rain and coolness...but less tourists is a nice thought too. Rome weather history:
