The Colosseum at Night {Tours in Rome}

When you live in Rome you get a lot of visitors. Most people want to come visit in the summer.  Rome is hot in the summer.  Not Niger in hot season hot, but pretty stinking hot. Particularly if your visitors are used to air conditioned spaces and lots of ice in their drinks. People underestimate how draining the heat can be in Rome. I have a great idea to share to beat the summer heat in Rome. Go to the Colosseum at night.

Save your visitors (or yourself) the waiting in a long line in the blazing sun, pushing their way through sweaty crowds and experience the impressive iconic monument in peace and comfort. Walks of Italy offers this incredible experience of having the entire Colosseum to yourself. I live right next to Colosseum. I walk by it every day. And just that still makes me stop snap a picture and take it in.  To be inside, in silence, with stars instead of sunshine overhead, was truly an extraordinary, emotional experience. I may never recommend visiting the Colosseum during daylight hours again.

  1. I'm so glad I hopped on your blog from Instagram. I never seem to make the connection to do that (just like looking at pretty pictures I guess!). I'm headed to Rome and the Amalfi Coast with my family in early June, and after reading bits and pieces of your blog, I'm even more excited! Do you have a favorite city along the AC to stay in?

  2. @Lauren I am so glad you stopped by too! I Love Positano and Capri. For a quieter, off the beaten path town, try Minori.

    1. Thanks so much Gillian! Nothing beats a personal recommendation, and there are so many beautiful places to choose from! I'm trolling AirBnB right now and getting lost in those gorgeous views! Can't wait to be in your part of the world. XO

  3. I never visited at night. I have not been in Rome since 1971 - I do not even know if it was open at night back then, but I wish I had known. I do recall that it was so incredibly hot that as I walked along on my way to the Colosseum, the asphalt on the street felt soft beneath my feet, and the heat came right through my shoes. I was quite familiar with hot weather having spent many summers in Palm Springs, but Rome in August was an altogether different kind of heat, an oppressive enervating sort of creature. Thanks for this one. I am sure I will return to Rome some day, and it will b a nighttime retur nto the Colosseum for me,
