In the late afternoon we arrived back in Rome for our final two nights in Italy. By the time we got to our hotel it was getting dark outside and after checking in we decided to do a little bit of sightseeing before finding dinner. With our hotel being less than a thousand feet from the Spanish Steps we decided to start there. The road we took brought us to the top of the staircase where we spent a moment looking out on the rest of Rome. While Rome’s night skyline isn’t as bright or iconic as some other European capitals we could see a number of domes lit up, including the distant dome of St Peter’s Basilica. We made our way down the steps to the plaza at the bottom and the Barcaccia Fountain where crowds tend to gather. Since it was a Friday night there were a fair amount of people at the steps and I couldn’t get a clean shot of the Barcaccia Fountain but it was still nice to be walking around Rome that night.
