With over two thousand years of history, it is no surprise that Rome offers massive opportunities for photography enthusiasts. Here are some of the Instagrammable places in Rome to add into your ultimate 4 days in Rome itinerary:
A circular castle from the 2nd century, Castel
Sant’Angelo is one of the favorite photography spots among tourists. Add the Ponte
Sant’angelo (originally called Aelian Bridge) into it and you have something
regal and romantic to share in your stories.
Passetto di Borgo is an elevated walkway erected in the 13th century. The secret passage was used as an escape route from danger. This “mysterious” passage has seen its share of limelight in popular culture, such as in Dan Brown’s “Angels & Demons” and in the “Assassin’s Creed II” video game.
Formally known as Victor Emmanuel II National Monument, the Altar of the Fatherland is dedicated to the first king of unified Italy. It also houses the tomb of an unknown Italian soldier, an emblematic shrine for all the missing and the fallen in World War I. Made of marble, the Neo-classical monument has eclectic influences and features that continue to fascinate visitors.
This ancient basilica set on a hilltop dates back to the 4th
century. It was built on top of a web of ancient Roman rooms, some of which
have frescoes. These days, the church is well-known for its ornate interiors.
The Church of Our Lady of the Conception of the Capuchins in Rome is famous not for its façade – it is famous for its crypt. Under the church is a crypt with skulls and bones along the walls and ceilings.
The Church of Saint Peter in Chains, also called Basilica
Eudoxiana, dates back to the 5th century and houses a Saint Peter
relic: the chains used to bind him during his imprisonment in Jerusalem. It is
also home to several artworks, including “Moses” by Michelangelo.
Even ancient Rome had shopping centers, one of which is Trajan’s Market. The preserved antediluvian shopping center features forums, great hall markets, plus archaeological exhibits. Armed with some travel photography tips, you can definitely snap some pictures worth sharing in your stories.
Somewhere in the middle of Piazza Navona, Campo de’ Fiori, Corso
Vittorio Emanuele II and Piazza di Pasquino, one can find a Neoclassical palace
called Palazzo Braschi that is the present home of Museo di Roma. The museum
has various pieces of art, including some of the works of Giovanni Bautista,
Antonio Canova, Nicola Salvi and Sir Joshua Reynolds.
The Basilica of Saint Mary above Minerva stands out from several other European churches of its time because it has maintained its original Gothic interiors. It is home to several works of art, including Cristo della Minerva by Michelangelo.
A Roman temple turned into a church, the Pantheon is well known for its portico, columns and dome. Its fame has inspired several structures in the western world and this contributes to the continued popularity of this historic Roman landmark.
