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
