After a handful of visits to Rome over the past few years adventuring around Europe, I’m convinced I could never tire of this city. Whether you’re roaming the city streets with a slice of fresh pizza in hand or navigating your way through a melting tri-scoop gelato cone, you’re going to find this city is best discovered when you’re in the know.

I set off to discover the best photographic points in the city with local guide Simone, who helped me discover the best of Rome is both in the old and new: the discovered and undiscovered. So here we have the very best views of Rome!

Terrazza Borromini Rome | WORLD OF WANDERLUST

Terraza Borromini

A relatively recent addition to the rooftop bar scene of Rome (which is surprisingly few and far between), Terraza Borromini might just be the best kept local secret. The terrace overlooks a panoramic view of the city and is best visited at golden hour, with plenty of time to unwind with an aperitif and wait for the sunset to roll in.

Location: Via di Santa Maria dell’Anima, 30A, 00186 Roma

Pincio Hill

Hands down one of Rome’s best sunset locations, Pincio Hill is a must visit when in Rome. This hill has a great view over the city from afar, is free, and provides a little exercise to walk off that carb-heavy lunch!

Location: Pincio Hill, Roma

Ponte Umberto I

Built in the late 19th century, Ponte Umberto provides the perfectly quintessential Roman backdrop. Located on the River Tiber, this postcard-perfect setting is one of my all time favourite views in Rome from ground level.

Location: Ponte Umberto I, River Tiber, Roma

The Roman Forum

No list of Rome’s greatest views would be complete without mention of the iconic Roman Forum, a collection of ruins at the ancient centre of Rome. This view is best enjoyed at sunrise without crowds and tour groups, so be sure to arrive early!

Location: Via della Salara Vecchia, 5/6, 00186 Roma

    I just returned from Rome and we stayed at the Hotel Villafranca. The rooms were nice service was great and the location was perfect. It is near the termini station bus station and you can easily walk to the Imperial Forum, Colosseum, Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain and others.

    Amazing Rome! I really want to visit the place one time in my life. But I think Rome has to wait for me 1 year because I spend time for traveling Southeast Asia with wonderful Thailand and Vietnam.

    These views are gorgeous! I’ve only been to Rome once (10 years ago when I was 16), so I’m dying to go again and explore more!

    Rome is my favourite city in the world! This summer, I’m going to show my parents around. I’ve made a note of Pincio Hill!

    I’ve always loved the view from the top of Altare della Patria, and you can’t beat the symmetrical St Peter’s Square from the top of the Basilica – though it’s pretty terrifying climbing all the way to the top of the dome.

    The Roman forum is one of my favourites! Also the bridge towards Trastavere and the road from where the Colosseum can be seen…all my favourites!
