Rome After Hours: Capitoline Hill

Rome’s Capitoline Hill is scenic any time of day. Walking past Trajan’s Column around the imposing Monumento Nazionale a Vittorio Emanuele II, the view from the ground looking up is impressive. However, upon climbing the stairs to reach the Piazza del Campidoglio at the top of the hill, the focus changes to the city spread out below. Except, of course, if a massive bird migration is taking place in the skies, as when we visited. Once the sun goes down, the Forum and Colosseum light up, and the view from Capitoline Hill affords an unforgettable vista for taking in Rome at night.
