Buona Notte Roma! (Night time in Rome, Italy)

The first time I was in Rome, I took the morning tours to see Ancient Rome and all the piazzas and fountains.  So this time around, on my second visit, my only wish was to see Rome at night.  While the cold winter weather made it harder to walk around the city during night time, the spectacular night scenes were enough to warm our bodies encouraging us to continue walking. 

At night, Rome transforms into something else.  She’s definitely more romantic and beautiful after the sun has set and the city lights start to illuminate the sky.

Probably the most well known fountain in the world: the Trevi Fountain!

More pictures after the jump!

The monument of Our Lady of Immaculate Conception.  

One of the many churches in Rome.

Inside the church of St. Ignatius of Loyola.  A church with a similar roof as the Sistine Chapel, providing an illusion of open skies.

The only mall in Rome.  An old building along the main highway full of shops.

One of the government buildings across the mall.

The Pantheon - still bustling with a lot of tourists at night. 

Gargabe cans around the city.  Blends perfectly with the rest of the city's architecture.

Taking the METRO is very convenient.  Most tourist destinations have a subway stop.  A ride only costs 1 Euro.  Just remember to bring spare change as the machine will only accept bills if the change due is less than or equal to 4 euros.  The ticket machines are multi-lingual.  You can set it to English so it's not that hard to operate. 

Indeed, our first night in Rome was truly Buona Notte! (Good evening).  These pictures were taken with my Sony Ericsson Xperia Ray using the Toy Cam feature of the  FxCamera application for Android phones.  More pictures to come on my next post. ^^
