When my uncle told us he wanted to take us on a driving tour of Rome at night, I was more than excited to enjoy the city out of the reaches of the searing Roman sun. However, I was slightly puzzled when we arrived upon a seemingly dark dead end, absent of cafés and fountains that encircled the other piazzas. He convinced us that he couldn't tell us what we would see, we'd just have to wait and find out for ourselves. After gathering at the dimly lit entrance of a gate, I was glad I had trusted my uncle. Looking through the keyhole at the Piazza of the Knights of Malta, you're able to see across the entire city and see Saint Peter's Basilica illuminated at night. I probably wouldn't have believed it if I didn't see it for myself, but those can make for the best adventures!
