In the center of Rome, between many fine shops and…
I started my evening walk from Ottaviano metro station. (Line A, direction battistini). I wanted to see the city in a evening time with a beautiful lights around the buildings.
It took about 10 minutes walking from metro station to San Pietro. San Pietro is very beautiful in the evening time. Every traveller must see it! And in the evening time it’s not too crowded there. You can see all the statues and be amazed by the beauty of the Vatican.
After San Pietro I headed to the Gianicolo. It takes about 30minutes to walk from San Pietro to Gianicolo. I was walking down a street called Viale delle mura aurelie: a very nice green area with little gardens and plantings. Finaly I arrived to the Gianicolo which is located up in a hill, where you can see almost the whole city. It is one of the best locations in Rome for a breathtaking view of the innumerable domes and bell towers that pierce the skyline of the multi-hued architectural museum that is the Eternal City. I stood there for a while, enjoying the view and then I felt very hungry so I decided to go eat something.
There’s no better place for dinner than Trastevere! After 10 minutes walk from Gianicolo I arrived to Trastevere. The neighbourhood is easily recognizable by its narrow cobbled streets lined by medieval houses. At night, both natives and tourists alike flock to its many pubs and restaurants. I found a nice restaurant next to the Piazza Santa Maria. My first course was Bruschetta with olive oil and tomatoes, a traditional italian antipasto. It consists of roasted bread with several choices of garnish. Molto buono! My second dish was pepper steak with cream sauce, potatoes and salad. So delicious! My stomach was full! Instead of dessert I ordered Limoncello. Limoncello is traditionally served chilled as an after-dinner digestivo. Very good for your stomach after dinner!
I recommend you to go these places to see and experience it yourself!!
