Tourist-Free Rome - Moments In Time Ep 11

Rome is one of the most fascinating and historically significant cities in the world and attracts visitors from all corners of the globe. The Eternal City is famous for its ancient architecture and there are so many outstanding locations to explore and photograph. Being such a famous city, Rome is also full of tourists, which can make it difficult to capture. In this episode, I share some of my all-time favorite photo spots like The Colosseum, The Forum, Ponte Sant’Angelo and more, while describing how to best shoot them and revealing how to beat the crowds and have the city all to yourself.

Tourism is a huge industry in Rome and love it or hate it, it attracts massive crowds. I take some time to catch up with my friend Julia Charity in Trastevere to discuss the impact of tourism and how a city like Rome can adapt as the numbers increase.

Aside from thousands of pigeons and seagulls, Rome isn’t known for its wildlife. But my good friend and internationally renowned wildlife photographer, Simone Sbaraglia, still calls it home. We visit his studio and gallery and discuss what sets his photography apart and how he uses wide-angle lenses instead of telephoto to create a feeling of intimacy with the animals in his photographs. Simone has a wonderful perspective on wildlife photography and works very hard to educate the public about safe and non-destructive practices in nature. We share our views on how we can preserve our beautiful planet for future generations.

In this Moments in Time series, we take a journey around the world together, and share about photography, travel, people, food, experiences, and everything that happens between the frames I capture. Join our Moments in Time Flickr community for access to two exclusive mini episodes, and new episodes will be published here on YouTube every Tuesday morning.
