Wandering Rome, The Eternal City, At Night

The Eternal City of Rome is stunning during the day. But in my opinion, it’s even more beautiful at night. And as long as you keep your wits about you, it’s a relatively safe place to walk around.

For a nighttime stroll, there are few places I’d Rather Be. Here are some of the things I encountered on my nocturnal wanderings…

The sun going down in Villa Doria Pamphili Park

Looking across the rooftops of Rome from the Janiculum Terrace (Terrazza del Gianicolo) just after sunset – the large marble structure in the distance is the National Monument to Victor Emmanuel II

Another view from the Janiculum Terrace, with the dome of the 2000-year-old Pantheon front and centre

Castel Sant’Angelo from the Janiculum Terrace

Roman ruins of Trajan’s Market

The Pantheon

Gravee found a friend outside the Pantheon

More columns, this time from the Temple of Hadrian

The Spanish Steps

Castel Sant’Angelo from Sant’Angelo Bridge

Sant’Angelo Bridge and Castle

The dome of St. Peter’s across the Tiber

Heading up Via della Conciliazione towards the Vatican

The colonnades of St. Peter’s Square – the building above them is the Apostolic Palace, where the Pope lives

St. Peter’s Basilica across St. Peter’s Square

Parking in Rome can be a problem… unless you have one of these

    Never been! Expect I will some day 🙂 🙂 Love the suggestions of the mountains in the background, the floodlit bridge and castelo, and Trevi at night looks magical. Thanks for rejoining me, Jaspa.
