Despite some warnings from locals about the distance, I decided to follow the map and took a lovely evening walk through Rome.Night photography has a charm of its own. The same structures look very different than during the day.
I ignored warnings about possible mugging. No one troubled me.
The Spanish steps were the first landmark, followed by Fontana Trevi, Piazza Venezia and then as the night became more mature I traced the steps past Foro Cesar to the Colosseum.
The return was a bit confusing, but eventually I agreed to the advise of locals and caught the bus back from the Colosseum (Route no 30. Other buses are 81,87 ) to Piazza Cavour. One has to buy the tickets for the local buses beforehand from vending machines which may be an issue with visitors esp in the night. Another tip is that one has to be a bit quick to hop on to the buses, otherwise the doors close.
Viewing and photographing these in the night has a different feel and charm.
This is a walk one can take with great ease and much fulfillment.Keep walking
