Incredible sunset locations in Italy

Romance abounds in Italy so why not revel in it! Sunset is one of the most beautiful times of the day across the country. Here’s a round up of 5 places with a killer view as the sun sets:


  • Over the River Tiber in Rome – The river passing through the heart of Rome is a great spot to catch a glimpse of the sun setting on the Eternal City. For the best sights, head to the Ponte Vittorio Emanuele II in the evening for a backdrop of Basilica Papale di San Pietro in Vaticano (St. Peter’s Basilica).

  • From a boat on the Bacino San Marco overlooking Venice – Venice is considered by many as the romance capital of Italy. The spanning views from Bacino San Marco look out into the crystal waters and reflect the orange sky. Simply beautiful. 

  • Castel San Pietro in Verona, Italy – The castle overlooks all of Verona and as the sun sets, the light reflects off the rooftops, adding to the amazing view.

  • Bridges over the Arno in Florence – A bridge is a great location to catch the sunset as you look across the waters. We recommend standing on the Ponte Satna Trinita and looking over towards the Ponte Vecchio.

  • Duomo di Milano in Milan – After a tour around the cathedral, climb to the top of the building in the evening to see the sun setting over all of Milan to end your visit.
