Tiber River, Rome

One of my favourite times of day to photograph a city is that half an hour after sunset… when there’s still a bit of dusk light in the sky and the city lights are on and twinkling in the blue, fading glow of the evening. The magical combination of natural and artificial lights gets me every time and by the Tiber river we had the added bonus of swirling reflections off the surface of the fast-flowing water. This was our last night in the eternal city that is Rome…

Rome Markets | Italy

On our recent trip to Rome we planned to do more of a foodie trip, rather than a “monuments and museums” kind of holiday… so I did a bit of research beforehand (and created an entire Pinterest board with ideas and recommendations from friends) to find the best local markets.

Rome!

We’re off to Rome soon for a week or so and I am super excited, I love this city and can’t wait to visit her again. This trip is like the perfect combination of all the things I love most in life… travelling, taking photos and eating… bring on the pecorino! We’ve done all the touristy stuff before so if anyone has great recommendations for off the beaten track things to do in Rome, or know great restaurants where they don’t have the menu in English, please leave a comment, I would love to hear your thoughts!
