NIGHT LAYOVER IN ROME ? ENJOY ILLUMINATING ROMAN SIGHTS

Posted on Posted in Flight Travel

George Eliot, one of the renowned writers of the Victorian Era described Rome as  :  

The city of visible history, where the past of a whole hemisphere seems moving in funeral procession with strange ancestral images and trophies gathered from afar.

Call it the city of love, the eternal city or the city of seven hills, Rome is a masterpiece in its own right. The city is known for being the initial developers of an efficient drainage system, the widely used Roman alphabets, aqueduct, etc. When talking about art, the Romans were the initiator of theatre, musicals, plays; Rome brought mass entertainment to the modern world.

While talking about Rome, how can we even possibly forget about its impressive history; of which the ancient structures and ruins are a standing testament?

The city and people of Rome never sleep and if you happen to be a lover of roaming around the city under the blinking stars, without much crowd; following are the sights you can enjoy when the sun goes down in the capital of the world:

CASTEL SANT’ ANGELO:

Close to the Vatican, at the end of the long and beautifully illuminated  Sant Angelo bridge stands a tall, cylindrically towering building that is the Castel Sant Angelo. Also known as the Castle of Holy Angel and The MAusoleum of Hadrian, walking through the excellent brick lane with the river Tiber flowing right below you is a mystical experience and the stunning moonlight scattering on the castle creating light, and shadow only adds to the beauty of the whole experience.

CAMPE DE FIORI:

This gorgeous historical place swiftly turns from a flock of food market’s vendors and stand area to a lively hangout spot. Campe de Fiori has an entirely different vibe to it after sunset. Located in Piazza Navona, this place is at a walking distance with Piazza Farnese, Trastevere and one can enjoy the relatively contrasting spiritedness in the shining lights.

TREVI FOUNTAIN:

One of the largest and most famous Baroque fountains in the world is in the Trevi district of Rome, the Trevi Fountain. Why visit this place at night, you ask? Well, because first of all, its less crowded and secondly under the moonlight, the light reflecting from the water in the foundation casts a blue illumination, making it look like a fairyland.

Rome, the eternal city, the city holding on to age-old secrets and ancient mysteries, never sleeps.  So if you happen to visit Rome for a full-fledged trip or just for a night, you can visit these magnificent places and get intrigued by their magnetic enlightening beauty at night. You don’t have to worry about traveling and safety at night, as you can either pre-book or book-at-instant the taxi transfer services available right outside the airport at a reasonable price. You can either choose from a shared shuttle service or a private transfer service; both will drop you off to your accommodation.
