I made it to Chicago safe and sound and wanted to leave you with a final recap of our Italian vacation in pictures. Here are some of the prettiest view of the city – Rome at night.
Have a great weekend!

The first photo on this post is absolutely breathtaking. My husband I are planning to take a trip overseas before we have kids and Rome is definitely on our list. Thanks for documenting your trip so well. It’s been extremely insightful. And not to mention fun to follow along. Great post : )

Rome at night is SO beautiful! I’ve loved reliving my trip to Rome through your gorgeous pictures! Welcome home!
What BEAUITFUL pictures! I do hope you frame a lot of them, especiallly the first one in this post :)
After reading your blog and seeing your pictures AND seeing Eat, Pray, Love over the weekend, I am convinced that I must go to Italy!
I’m curious… is Rome safe at night?
Thanks for sharing your pictures and experience. Very inspiring!

Ahh I want to go there!! How beautiful!!
You just made me “homesick” for Rome. We were stationed nearby for three years (2007-2010), with Rome only an hour-ish train ride for us, so we went often! The first time I saw the Colosseum was at night, and there is just no describing it! And the Fontana di Trevi was beyond gorgeous! We had so much fun, and can’t wait to go back one day!
As to the person who asked if it is safe at night, it is just like any other city. As long as you use common sense, it’s relatively safe, especially in the more tourist-frequented areas. However, even during the day, you want to keep your personal items on your body, and maintain a close eye. There is a lot of petty theft, but rarely any violence. The subway lines are the most likely for pickpockets, as well as the airport, and anywhere else there’s a decent crowd.
