A quiet night at Vatican City
They say that the view of rome in the day and in the night is totally different.
I was really impressed by the night view of St. Peter’s Square, in front of St. Peter’s Basilica, a place where they hold masses. We went to this place twice: in the day, when we wanted to visit the Vatican Museums, and at night, on our last day in Rome. This square is a collection of huge building, with different styles and some with different statues on top.
One thing that surprised me about the Vatican City is that even though it is a Christian place, there are embassy from all countries, even countries which are Muslim or from other religions. I think this is an example of peace.
The place looked beautiful at night, because they illuminated it very nicely, and the contrast of light and dark makes it look amazing: The warm yellow lights were on, everything seemed so quiet and peaceful. The wind was blowing softly, only a few seagulls were enjoying their food and walking around. The whole scene was static to me, it really let me to stare and imagine. At that moment I felt like every thing were telling different stories.
After enjoying for this for a night, we went back to rome and prepared for our new day, for our return.
I think Rome is a city everyone should visit at least once in their lives. Everything is so beautiful here that it is hard to capture it all in pictures.
Rome at night is my favourite. Every corner looks like it has mysteries and secrets, and I loved walking at night seeing how the shadows of people follow them like ghosts.
