ROME night walk

We followed the night walking tour of Rome from a Rick Steve's guide book. It was a great self guided tour of some of the most beautiful night images of Rome.

One stop was Trevi Fountain, started by Nicola Salvi in 1732 and completed by Giuseppe Pannini in 1762.

Another stop was Piazza Navona. Fontana del Moro was really beautiful. Giacomo della Porta created the fountain in 1574-1576, and Gian Lorenzo Bernini redesigned it 1654, adding the central statue "il Moro", an Ethiopian fighting a dolphin.

We also stopped at the Pantheon. Really incredible.

...and a few random shots
