There is no one who fails to take pictures when traveling. It is an incredible way to remember a special moment, leaving it saved forever. Some take pictures of everything and without thinking too much before photographing something. However, I confess that I am the type of person who cares a lot about the landscape that will compose the photograph.
Even when I travel to wonderful locations, I look for specific areas that can yield beautiful images. All streets in Rome, for example, look like movie sets, which helps a lot! Still, I’m going to share with you my selection of the most interesting spots for taking photos there. After all, we all want beautiful memories, right?
Impossible to go to Rome and return without having met Trastevere! This is one of the most charming neighborhoods in the city and is not as frequented by tourists as the center. The cobbled streets are cute and super well combined with the houses, cafes and restaurants in the region.
Most buildings are decorated with several plants, making everything even more beautiful. In addition to being an incredible place to take pictures, it is also great for walking and discovering what the streets have to offer. You will find everything from medieval churches to shops of different styles.
Monti is a neighborhood as beautiful as Trastevere. The area is full of hillsides and houses covered with plants, making the place even more charming. One of the most popular spots for tourists is the Salita dei Borgia staircases, which take you to the San Pietro in Vincoli basilica.
Another super cool thing there is that the trade is very busy and has a bit of everything. The Monti Market and the Fatamorgana ice cream parlor are among the most frequented establishments in the neighborhood. Nothing better than walking around a nice place and taking wonderful pictures!
Via Margutta is a region so beautiful that it has even been the scene of several films, such as Roman Holiday, starring Audrey Hepburn. Every corner of this street has something different. As the place is small, I recommend you to go in the morning, avoiding the photo with many people in the background.
Like Monti, there are several shops there and they are all interesting. Many smaller art galleries are also located in this part of the city. Depending on the day, you will find artists exhibiting their works on the street. It is fascinating to see a region so beautiful and full of culture.
I already told you about the Vatican Museums, but one part in particular deserved to be in that post. The museums themselves are incredible and some of the details that form them are amazing. The stairs made by the architect Giuseppe Momo, for example, are a separate show. Throughout the entire external structure there are several bronze details made by Antonio Maraini – it is a beautiful work.
The stairs end up becoming part of the museum’s collection of art works, they are so dazzling. The light that illuminates this small part comes mainly from a glass ceiling that is right in the center of the stairs. Impossible for photos to come out bad in a beautiful place like this, right?
To vary the tours of ruins and neighborhoods in Rome a little, Villa Borghese is the perfect escape. It is not for nothing that this is one of the busiest parks in the city. In addition to the gardens, the place is also full of fountains, sculptures and old buildings.
Within this park are also other attractions, such as the Borghese Gallery, which I already told you in the post of art galleries. This whole area is very quiet, so you can take some pictures in the morning and then get to know the other points of interest of the place 😉
Slope gods Scauro
Few tourists know the Clivo di Sauro and even some residents of Rome have never heard of this beautiful corner of the city. The arches of the clivo form a beautiful and different scenery in the photos, that’s why it is so special. The place is just a 15-minute walk from the Colosseum, meaning you can enjoy being close by and stop by to take amazing photos.
After so many posts about Rome, you can see that the city has a multitude of wonderful places, right? Soon you will see how our experience there was and what we think of the places we were able to visit 🙂
