Aside from the 2,770-year-old history, the world-renowned food, and the impossibly charming streets, there is one more reason to visit Rome: the sunsets. You may have heard that Rome is a city of seven hills, well this allows for great viewpoints to observe all of the city’s layers. And if there was a time in which it becomes even more beautiful, it would be at sunset.
Something special happens to Rome as the sun goes down. The already impressive monuments light up in a warm glow that illuminates the entire city. Off in the distance you hear church bells, which we’ve come to recognize as the song of Rome. Then, the entire sky is set on fire while the contrasting lines of monuments create a perfect outline. In short, sunsets here are perfection. Here are my favorite 5 places to watch the sunset in Rome.
