Visiting Rome in the moonlight

Rome is a city of multiple faces. It can be funny, cozy, chaotic; you can see it from different points of view. But when the night falls, the Eternal City becomes absolutely fantastic.

These are three places you can’t miss under the moonlight!

PONTE SANT’ANGELO (Bridge of Angels)

There’s no doubt that Castel Sant’Angelo is one of the most suggestive places in Rome. And Ponte Sant’Angelo Bridge, or “Bridge of Angels”, is amazing during the night. It’s full of lights and you can enjoy a breath-taking view from every angle. Take a walk there and give yourself the opportunity to have a private moment of relax and delight.

VIA DI MONTE TESTACCIO (Monte Testaccio street)

Testaccio (Mountain of crock) is one of Rome’s most famous neighborhood. It is situated in an area which used to be the harbour of Ancient Rome and it takes its name from the huge numbers of broken amphorae that were left there. Now Via di Monte Testaccio is the beating heart of the Roman movida!

THE JEWISH GHETTO

The Roman Jewish Ghetto is one of the most ancient in the world and it is stunning after the sunset. Its atmosphere is really unique, almost magical. The Synagogue and the Portico d’Ottavia, from Ancient Rome, seem to embrace  all the people who look at them. Walking onto its streets is really a beautiful experience. But you can also choose to have a dinner there, in one of the Jewish restaurants that locals love.
