There was a gorgeous full moon while I was in Rome, so I took the opportunity to get some night shots.

The southern neighborhoods of Rome were where I found the best food.  There were also some really awesome sights.  The south is a little grittier and less gentrified in areas but completely worth the time.

I spent a lot of time walking around when I was in Rome, so I saw most of the city, some of which is rarely seen by tourists.  It helped that I was staying with a Roman friend who showed me some great local places, including the best pizza in Rome in the Garbatella neighborhood.  (More on the food in another post.)
