The Piazza di Spagna - Spanish Steps with the Church of the Trinita dei Monti, Rome, Italy
Rome is one of the most ancient cities in the world. It can lay claim to having influenced the world more than any other city. As we walked around the city it was interesting to see how present lives intertwine with a city that still preserves a lot of the neighborhoods from hundreds of years ago.
As dusk approached on one of the days, we rushed to the Piazza di Spagna to see the sky turn electric blue over the Spanish Steps or Scalinata and it is the longest and widest staircase in Europe. This is the perfect spot to spend an evening, watching just that interaction between the past and the present. As a photographer, this is one of my favorite things to do in ancient cities.
