Quiet Rome

I’ve been a bit on the fence about posting pictures from my trip to Rome at the beginning of February. But then I decided Rome isn’t called the Eternal City for no reason. Rome, or actually Italy for that matter, is suffering during this lockdown but I am confident it will bounce back. Just like it always has.

Currently the streets are empty and I can only imagine what it’s like. Whenever I visit a city, I always look for the quiet back streets and empty courtyards. How fitting for this time. Here is a collection of images I took while we walked back and forth across the city.

  1. Oh I love every one of these, but am especially struck with the 8th one from the top. When I opened my email this morning, filled with uninvited offers from strangers trying to find a way to make money, I opened Capturingtheseasons first, before sending to junk the rest, because I knew it would be the most welcome art I need to spend time with….Thank you for sharing the beauty of Rome!

    Your photos of Rome are beautiful and I love how you find the quiet streets and secret corners of the city. Your posts always brighten my day, something we all need during this trying time. Thank you for sharing your time in Rome!

    1. I’m glad you enjoyed the photos!

  3. These are really wonderful photos showing so many sides of the Eternal City including the back streets along with the famous, well-known buildings. I also like the variety of architectural styles from the ancient structures through the classical and baroque periods. Well done!

    1. Thanks! It’s so much fun to photograph the different styles.

    What a lovely reminder of a beautiful city! It will most certainly bounce back, and we can hope it will be stronger than ever. I certainly hope so. I love looking at all the doorways into people’s homes and wondering what it must be like to have a family house like that, where it’s been passed down and lived in for generations. It’s such a foreign concept to me! But for some, it’s just normal. That’s where their family has lived for centuries even. How different but fun that is!

  5. Rome has been a city that seemed so packed with people, both tourists and residents. Looking at your photos brought out the beauty and serenity of Rome. You are such a good traveler and such a good photographer!

    1. Thank you.
