Rome at night is magical with its illuminated historical monuments, shiny cobbled streets and restaurants stirring with locals and tourists.
Here’s ten pictures to inspire a trip to the eternal city, including The Vatican…
The towering round castle rises proudly over the river Tiber.
Positioned along the Via dei Fori Imperali, Trajan’s Market is a long stretch of ruins which details the remains of an Ancient Roman Shopping Centre.
The quirky Trastevere area is a hub of bars and restaurants which comes to life in the evening. I was totally charmed by the colourful side streets around here.
The Pantheon, Piazza della Rotonda
Piazza della Rotonda is lovely for an evening candle-lit dinner with the columned Pantheon providing a unique backdrop.
The Trevi Fountain is hugely popular place to visit, especially by day. It looks even more beautiful lit-up at night (and it’s usually a lot quieter for photos).
The River Tiber
There’s a spectacular view of the dome of St Peter’s Basilica from the bridges over the river Tiber, I struggled to tare my eyes away.
Taken from Via Nicola Salvi, the elevated road offers a wonderful perspective of Rome’s most famous landmark and Arch of Constantine.
The Altare della Patria
Also known as the ‘National Monument to Victor Emmanuel II’, the imposing white building crowns the expansive Piazza Venezia.
