The Trevi Fountain
The Trevi Fountain is easily one of the most Instagrammable places in Rome. Do I have any Lizzy Maguire fans here?! Because the Trevi Fountain is so famous, it’s crowded at all times!
If you really want pictures with little to no people, it is best to plan your photoshoot at the Trevi Fountain by 7 AM. If waking up early is not in the cards, you can usually still get a photo with the right angles, you just might not be able to capture the full fountain.
Remember, don’t go in the fountain!
Address: Piazza di Trevi, 00187 Roma RM, Italy
The Spanish Steps
Located in Piazza di Spagna (the Spanish Square), you will find another top photo-worthy place in Rome. Again, the best time to do your photoshoot at this Rome Instagram spot is early in the morning to avoid the crowds.
We did our photo shoot at the Spanish Steps right after seeing the Trevi Fountain, so it is definitely within walking distance if you want to hit both.
Sunset is another great time to visit the Spanish Steps, however, the steps will be full of people so many not as Instagrammable. I would highly recommend still visiting and enjoying pizza or some wine!
Address: Piazza di Spagna, 00187 Roma RM, Italy
Not only is the Pantheon one of the most Instagrammable places in Rome, but it is also one of the coolest places to visit. This now Roman ruin is the only unsupported dome in the world. Make sure to go inside and see it!
For photography purposes, the best time once again is to do your photoshoot in the morning to avoid crowds. Our photo was taken mid-day in May and it just rained (which is why there were fewer people). Come back at night to hang out and drink wine.
Address: Piazza della Rotonda, 00186 Roma RM, Italy
You can’t visit Rome without seeing the Colosseum! It holds the spot as one of the 7 Wonders of the World.
The best place to get an Instagrammable photo with no one in it is by going to the back of the Colosseum near the train on the edge of the wall. You might have to walk up the steps depending on which way you are coming from.
Also, we would highly suggest taking a tour inside! A guided tour with skip the line is totally worth it.
Colosseum Address: Piazza del Colosseo, 1, 00184 Roma RM, Italy
Arch of Constantine
You can find the Arch of Constantine right next to the Colosseum. Believe it or not, a lot of detail on the arch has been added on and was not apart of the original. You can find a good photo location on the hill behind the arch!

If you do a guided tour of the Colosseum, it usually includes Palatine Hill. Palatine hill, looks over the Roman Forum. I think this is easily an under-rated Instagrammable place in Rome. Head the overlook for a stunning view of Roman ruins!
Located across from the Colosseum!
Next, is actually inside the Roman Forum. Here you get to walk next to tons of ancient ruins, making for some epic photo opportunities! Seriously, there are ruins everywhere, and a lot of them are not even blocked off!
Because this area of ruins is pretty big, you just have to look for the right angles to avoid people. If you look at the below shot at the top right corner, you will see all the people overlooking!
Another underrated photo location gem to get Instagram photos in around Castel Sant’Angelo. You can get Instagrammable photos all around this castle including the walkway up to it. If you decide to pay to go inside, there is a great view of the entire city.
Address: Lungotevere Castello, 50, 00193 Roma RM, Italy
This Piazza is probably one of Rome’s best squares! There is one main fountain the is incredibly Instagrammable with two smaller fountains on each end. This is also a great place to come to sit at a restaurant, have some Aperol Spritz, and people watch.
Piazza Navona is usually packed with vendors and street artists selling things (especially during the weekends), so it is best to come early in the morning for photos. It was raining the first time we visited, so the square was empty.
Altar of the Fatherland
Known as “The Wedding Cake” and “The Typewriter”, Altar of the Fatherland is actually the largest national monument in Italy and totally Instagrammable! Around the corner from this monument is also the Capitoline Museums of Rome, which also offer tons of Instagrammable places.
Address: Piazza Venezia, 00186 Roma RM, Italy (Altar of the Fatherland)
Address: Piazza del Campidoglio, 1, 00186 Roma RM, Italy (Capitoline Museums)
Instagrammable Doors and Streets in Rome
Rome is also full of Instagrammable doors and streets. Some areas to find super Instagrammable streets around the Jewish Ghetto. The allies scream photograph me and there are even ruins to twirl around.
Other charming allies are situated around this AHmazing gelato place called Frigidarium. We went here every day just to walk around.
There are really stunning doors all around Rome. This particular door is found on Via di Torre Argentina 68 Lazio, Italy
