I know, it’s technically Sunday, but I had to wait – we just got back from a night walk adventure, seeing the Trevi Fountain and the Spanish Steps lit up and crowded! We didn’t even leave the apartment until 12h30 and the streets were filled with bar-hoppers, partygoers and Romans having a good ol’ time. There was a birthday at the Trevi, complete with champagne and wishes made into the fountain; every bar and gelateria was packed, crowds flowing into the streets as we made our way to the Spanish Steps. Now, I’m a terrible tourist and had not yet seen the Steps – by day or night – and this was quite the novelty for me. It was 02h00 in the morning, and the Steps were crowded, mostly with locals taking a break from the bars, or stopping to hang out before parting ways. Street vendors peddled their normal wares: over-priced neon LED toys that spin into the air and cheap keychains – but tonight, they also toted coolers filled with cheap beer – yours for only €3 a can. Gross yes, but also hilarious (worse, people were buying it – ugh!). In any case, we made our way home a little bit ago and the streets were still crowded with people – mostly in their 20s and 30s, drinking on Ponte Sisto, hovering outside bars and clubs, wandering home through the narrow, winding streets.
