I’ve never been to Italy in the summer but have been elsewhere in the Mediterranean, and I can second that it will be hot and sunny, so bring sunglasses and dresses!  Also, this post brings up some good points about how Europe is a little dressier than what many Americans are used to:

If you plan to visit the Vatican and any other churches, you’ll need to wear a shirt with sleeves or bring something to cover your shoulders and pants or a skirt that goes to your knees. Your Fiance will need a pair of pants. It will be HOT in Rome in July, but the Vatican is pretty strict about enforcing the dress code.

I was in Rome July of 2008 and believe what people are saying it was sweltering hot!!! I would say pack with the mindset of say a fancier tropical vacation, you will want cool breezy clothes and if you are like me some shorts for the long walking days because my legs were raw inside from all the walking and it is not so sexy!!

Like OwlBride said, you’ll need to pack at least one or two lightweight outfits with sleeves and pants if you want to visit the Sistine Chapel.

Bring linen pants and shirts.  We were in Rome in June and it was hot hot hot!  We waiting in line for a couple of hours to go inside the Sistine Chapel only to not get in because the President was meeting with the Pope and tours were stopped 🙁

Enjoy your honeymoon in Rome!!

P.S. The Trevi fountain is way better at night time.  Go in the daytime too, but if you happen to be over in that area at nighttime, it is just amazing.  Not to mention less crowded.

P.P.S. Joining a tour at the big tourist places like the Colosseum is an easy (and not that expensive) way of getting through the line faster.  They have separate lines for people in groups and they move way faster than the regular line.  Plus you get a guide to give you more insight into everything.  Bonus!!
