Most Instagram-able Spots in Rome

Every month, any blogger/vlogger who loves Italy or is Italian or simply wants to share their memories of Italy, writes on a particular topic as part of the linkup of #DolceVitaBloggers. This month’s topic is “Favorite Italian City” and needless to say mine is Rome. So here I am sharing about my favorite Instagram-able spots in the eternal city!

Most Instagrammable Spots in Rome

People on Instagram will agree how we are almost always obsessed to click a picture with the sole intention of posting it on Instagram. We want it to be perfect- the look, the dimensions, the presentation. I too am obsessed with Instagram (not as much as I used to be before because of the darn algorithm!) so a post like this was bound to happen. Enjoy Rome from the eyes of an Instagrammer and do give a follow if you are on Instagram!

ANYWHERE IN TRASTEVERE: Just walk around in the neighborhood of Trastevere and every alley has to be photographed for the app. Take a turn anywhere, you will be gaping at the raw beauty of this side of Rome. Don’t confuse yourself to be on a movie set….It’s only Trastevere! Every corner is imperfectly perfect and ready to be Instagramm’d.

ANY PLACE WITH THE COLOSSEUM IN VIEW: This will never ever go wrong. Even if the picture was upside down and you were wearing the weirdest outfit, even if the picture was blurred or wrongly placed….. But as long as you have the Colosseum as your background, I’d guarantee that you’d get double the likes than you usually do! 😉

It is the best backdrop in Rome for just about anything!

STREETS FROM ALTARE DELLA PATRIA TO CAMPO DE’ FIORI: Get a city map of Rome and reach Altare della Patria and take a hundred shots of the area + Roman Forum. Then move towards Campo de’ Fiori– a leisurely 20 minute walk filled with hidden backstreets that have never been discovered (on Instagram I mean). Sheer delight! You will find yourself surrounded by artists and music players and will end up photographing them and the most unusual store fronts. Also don’t forget to move further towards the Spanish Steps and visit the famed Via Margutta where Remember Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck’s movie The Roman Holiday was shot.

-I recently read an article on travel jealously/envy and how social media is responsible for it. -While I agree with it to some extent, I think most of it is self made and is born out of insecurities. Everyone came to the world for themselves and we are all trying to do our own thing. So why so much jealousy in the first place? Figure your calling. Did you ever think to notice jealousy and comparisons lead nowhere. Also, what's stopping you from doing it?? Probably you.. yourself. Social media for me is about telling my best moments to the world because that's what I choose to. And even though there are lot of things that happen on the road, everything doesn't make a part of what I want to share. Remember that travel isn't just sitting on the beach, drinking cocktails and clicking Instagrammable pics 😉 neither is any other part of social media. There is much more to it! Just widen your mind and focus on yourself🍫🍷 (Sorry for the super long caption) 🙈🙈

EVERY PLACE IN ROME IS INSTAGRAM-ABLE: In my opinion, the whole of Rome is “Instagram-able”. Visit the famous sites early morning when the city is asleep and you will find not one but plenty of great Instagram-able spots. My favorites include The Pantheon and Castel Sant’Angelo. Then of course there is Trevi Fountain where you have to get a picture clicked with yourself throwing a coin!

NO NO, I DIDN’T MISS THE VATICAN: How can I forget the smallest most gorgeous country in the world?? Every inch is prepped for the Gram!

  1. Lovely post and great reminder of my favourite city. I’d agree with you about everywhere being instagrammable. I need to explore Trastevere more but the Pyramid and Protestant Cemetery are my new favourites and even the plainest churches hide jewels within them!

      1. There’s so much I haven’t done in 7 visits. We’ve got a great new TV series on here in the UK at the minute and it’s given me so many more ideas. It’s a never ending to do list 😆

  2. Love the whole of Rome, but Trastavere is one of my favorite areas. Great photos, thanks for sharing. Moving to Italy to retire soon. Can’t believe I’ll be able to drive to Rome. Took my whole like to achieve my dream, but good things are worth waiting for right. Fab photos!

      1. We’ve bought a house in Abruzzo. Three hour drive from Rome, but not a bad drive. We’re giving ourselves 2 years to get things tied up here in the US. If we can do it more quickly we will. I think about Italy every day, and have done since I was a kid.

  3. I was just in Rome this December; definitely agree with you on those Instagrammable places! Such a magical city with so much history, art, and great food!

  4. I agree, Italy and especially Rome is so photogenic! One cannot help but click away on everything: battered doorknobs, half open shutters, stray cats, plates of pasta…resulting in baffled looks and shakes of the head from locals. Your gallery is a lovely reminiscence of previous Roman holidays.
    I’m following your Instagram journey, so I’ll hopefully see it in my feed.
    Happy New Year Ishita! May 2018 bring you many more chances to walk upon Roman roads and while away in Italian cafes.

    1. Seriously I am in awe of the number of pictures I click in Rome 😉 Thank you so much. Happy you do. More travels to you in 2018, I really appreciate your thoughts and wishes.

  5. So glad you were able to join us for #DolceVitaBloggers!!! 🙂 Rome is such an instagrammable city…too bad I did all my traveling there before the days of Instagram…sigh! Just another reason to go back 😉 I love the vibe you captured of the city…can totally imagine I’m there!!

    1. oops..with the cat and the washing. You’ve reminded me how much I love Rome despite the traffic and rubbish 🙁 and that I really need to do another trip there soon! Thanks 🙂

    2. Aw thanks cara 🙂 I love the one with the cat too. Such a nice local vibe to it. and thank you for following my Instagram journey. Stay tuned for a lot of LIVE Italy soon 😉

  6. I love your photos, it reminds me how breathtaking Rome is. Even when you don’t photograph the obvious things, the beauty is everywhere. Sigh! I have to go back I think! Love the way you’ve organised this post as well. Very different. Thank you for joining #DolceVitaBloggers lovely x
