Rome is one of the prettiest cities in the world and it looks charming all day long. However, it’s during sunset that the Eternal City becomes absolutely enchanting. In this guide, you will find 5 of the best spots from where to enjoy a stunning sunset in Rome.
Terrazza del Gianicolo
Gianicolo Hill offers the most splendid views to Rome you could ever wish for. Apart from the city’s gorgeous rooftops, there are quite a few of Rome’s most impressive monuments that you can admire from the terrace on Gianicolo Hill, such as the Victor Emmanuel II National Monument (Altare della Patria) or the Pantheon.
Terrazza del Pincio
After a stroll around wonderful Villa Borghese, make sure you are at the Pincio Hill Terrace right on time for sunset so as to catch a jaw-dropping glimpse of Piazza del Popolo and beyond.
Giardino degli Aranci
The Garden of the Orange Trees (Giardino degli Aranci) is one of the most romantic spots in Rome. Its location atop Aventine Hill is responsible for the most magnificent view to the imposing Saint Peter’s Basilica as it soars above the gorgeous city that is Rome.
Ponte Umberto I
Few things can beat standing on a bridge and watching the stunning colours of the sunset reflect on the water. If the background is adorned with the breathtaking silhouette of the Vatican City, then we’re talking about an almost unreal spectacle. Yet it’s 100% real and you can enjoy it while standing on Umberto I Bridge in Rome.
Apart from the impressive hills that surround Rome and the bridges over the Tiber, you can watch a breathtaking sunset even in the heart of the city. Navona Square is for many the most beautiful square in the entire city. This splendid piazza with its gorgeous fountains and quintessentially Italian buildings becomes even more fabulous at sunset when everything takes on a unique golden hue.
And after having watched the most exciting sunset what? Your day must end in an equally fascinating way either by delving into the depths of Roman history in the most unique way or by joining an authentic Italian food cooking class. Which one is it going to be?
