Night in Rome

Published June 16th, 2011

So a couple weeks ago I did something quite interesting that I should have done way before.

I spent a whole (from 1am to 6:30am) weekday (to minimize people) night (tuesday) walking around my city.

Rome was totally different from what I am used to, the TOTAL lack of people and cars made the city look like a theme park.

Maybe I was just lucky but I've encountered like 10 cars the whole night and like 5-6 people, really crazy.

The quietness of everything, being able to walk around in the middle of the street and stopping whenever you want to sit down your tripod and take a picture is truly unique, especially if you are used to all the noise, people and chaos this city offers.

Bottom line?

I suggest visiting Rome by night, just sleep the whole day and walk around the city at night time to enjoy the surreal feeling of being in a deserted city.
