Rome’s Centro Storico is a great place for an evening stroll. As the evening lights go on the architectural treasures of Rome’s historical center begin to glow. And you will see that they all look even more amazing than at daytime.
At night Rome’s sights show their best and you can clearly see all the fine details in them. Wandering through Rome’s Centro Storico I took 25 evening photos to show you the best of the Eternal City.
Enjoy the night lights of Rome!
