When we think about Rome, and Italy in particular, there’s no way we could imagine it without the sun, the warm colors, and the beautiful architecture. My imagination reflects on my pictures. The reason I’m creating and using my own Lightroom presets, is because there’s nobody else who could create the colors and lights that I have in my mind when I think about a specific location. This Rome photo gallery will show you the colors of the Eternal City, as I see it.
If you’re the first time on my blog, welcome! What you’ll need to know, that I’ve started my blogging and photographer career thanks to my love for Rome! ShegoWandering wouldn’t exist without the Eternal City’s positive influence on my life!
The Italian capital city was the place I’ve started to write the most about in here. Not just because it was my most visited destination in Italy, but because it’s just way too charming to not see it! It has a vibe, a magic that made me absolutely obsessed 5 years ago.
About the Rome photo gallery
During the times of lockdowns and quarantines, I’ve been going through my pictures taken in Rome in the past years. I was really surprised to notice how many beautiful spots I captured over the years, and how many of these were completely forgotten. For some reason, I never noticed the beauty in the seemingly bad shots. But the beauty is there!
I’ve spent some time composing, editing these forgotten photos, and I have decided to share it in a gallery altogether. The post is including pictures of the colorful streets of Rome, parks, viewpoints, bridges, fountains, squares, and monuments! I hope this will serve as an inspiration for you, to awaken your curiosity, to see Rome for yourself (even again)!
Centro Storico – Streets in the historic center of Rome
There’s nothing I love to do more in Rome, than to just wander around on those colorful cobblestoned streets in the historic center!
The first time I did it, it was in 2015, on my very first evening in Rome. I’ve been there with my high school best friend, and we managed to get lost on an otherwise very simple route. While we’ve been trying to find the way out from the labyrinth of narrow streets, we’ve passed by many pretty streets and beautiful buildings. Love at first sight!
Since that first time, now I’m willingly spending hours roaming around with my camera and randomly exploring new places. My Rome photo gallery is containing at least 15 thousand pictures. Here are some of my favorite shots from the past 5 years of the colorful streets in Rome!
- Via della Reginella & Via dei Pastini
- Corner of Via dei Condotti & Piazza di Spagna
- Via del Governo Vecchio & Vicolo del Malpasso
- Via del Moro & Via della Pelliccia
- Vicolo del Malpasso & Vicolo della Schimia
- Vicolo Moroni
Iconic monuments in Rome, Italy
The stunning monuments are the main reason we’re all visiting Rome, obviously! Seeing the magnificent Pantheon, the Colosseum, the Roman Forum… These are on everybody’s bucket list who’s ever thought to visit Rome. If not, I hope they will be now!
The iconic monuments got me to fall in love with this city over and over again. Whenever I’m visiting Rome, even though I’ve seen everything 10 times, I’m always, always re-doing my attractions walking tour, visiting all iconic monuments in Rome, and admiring them as it’s the first time.
- Pantheon – Piazza della Rotonda
- Altare della Patria – Piazza Venezia
- Castel Sant’ Angelo
- Basilica San Pietro – Via della Conciliazione
- Roman Forum – from the Capitolium Hill
- Spanish Steps – Piazza di Spagna
Stunning fountains around the city of Rome
The fountains in Rome are at least as famous as for every other iconic place we’ve just seen. Just think about the Trevi Fountain, the Fontana di Quatro Fiumi in the middle of Piazza Navona, and dozens more! On every piazza, and all around the city, you’ll keep seeing these amazing structures from different ages.
Lorenzo Bernini is one of my favorite architects, and in Rome, there are numerous fountains, all designed by him. Some of these are on Piazza Navona, Piazza San Pietro, and Piazza Repubblica. An article with the most beautiful fountains around Rome will be published soon! For now, let’s see the next coming pieces of the Rome photo gallery!
