Rome, the capital of Italy, is known for its famous italian landmarks, as well as the italian city vibe it gives off. Just as any other city in Italy, Rome does not disappoint with its photography opportunities. The exciting thing about Rome is that you get to see famous landmarks such as the colosseum, as well as being surrounded by stunning architecture. By reading this, I hope I can inspire you to see this beautiful city for yourself!
1. The Colosseum
I was really excited to see the colosseum, as I had always associated it with Italy before visiting the country. It is so big and such an iconic landmark, you can’t miss it! It is also great because you can take so many angles, whether it be standing or sitting directly in front, or using it as a background, it will always give you the perfect rome aesthetic you crave.
2. Trevi Fountain
When I saw the Trevi Fountain in person, I couldn’t believe how amazing it truly was; the colour was the prettiest turquoise, and it was huge! The architecture ws also quite remarkable. There are lots of places to sit or stand in front for pictures, but my favourite shot is the act of throwing a coin to make a wish.
3. Spanish Steps
The Spanish steps are also really pretty, and definitely worth a visit. They are right down the street from the trevi fountain, and super easy to spot as the whole street opens up to them. You can also climb to the top to get a bird’s eye view of the city. Be careful not to sit down though, as you will get told to leave by security.
4. The Vatican
The Vatican is also a great photo opportunity. It is such a unique place to visit, as it has so much authority as its own type of country. It is very easy to access, as buses can take you right from Rome in no time at all. The Vatican is especially pretty in the evenings, with the surrounding evening glow.
5. Pont St. Angelo
This was my favourite bridge in Rome for sure. I found it to be the prettiest at night, as the surroundings have a pink tone to them with the city all light up as well. It is such a nice spot as you can see the Vatican in the background, giving the perfect Rome picture from any angle.
