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…
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
Roman ruins of Trajan’s Market
Gravee found a friend outside the Pantheon
More columns, this time from the Temple of Hadrian
The Spanish Steps
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.
Oh… Rome is a must-see, Jo!
Beautiful photography for this week’s sunset to sunrise topic. Thanks Jaspa. 😀
I ❤ Roma!
Me too, Donna!
Thanks for letting me dream. Nice photos.
Dream On! And thanks!
You’ve convinced me. I’d love to return and go for a stroll.
I bet you didn’t need much convincing, did you Susan?!

It definitely has a more magical aura at night. Great photos, Jaspa.
I would say an “even” more magical aura at night, Sylvia. I think it’s pretty magical in the day, too!
Yes, especially the Trevi Fountain. 🙂
