Rome by Night

On the first Saturday of each month Rome has free admission to more than 20 museums from 8pm to 2am so I went to the Castel Sant'Angelo. I climbed to the top of the cupola on my last day in Rome. This is the view of the Forum from the inside of the Capitoline museums. This is a view of St. Peter's from the balcony of the Castel Sant'Angelo. This is the view of St. Peter's square from the top of the cupola. This is a view of the Tiber from the balcony of the Castel Sant'Angelo. I walk down this street on my way home to my apartment in Trastevere. The Trevi fountain is my favorite monument to visit at night in Rome.

Rome is beautiful at night. When the sun sets early in the winter it is fun to visit many sights after dark.
