If you are passionate about photography, there is no doubt that Rome will be one of the destinations in Europe where you will enjoy your hobby the most.

The antiquity and monumentality of the Eternal City give the Italian capital an overwhelming beauty. Some charms that will give you a lot to play when it comes to get behind the lens of your camera and make a beautiful souvenir photo report.

This kind of photo tours are an excellent opportunity to develop all your creativity and improve your technique as you will be accompanied by a professional guide and photographer who will not only show you some of the most beautiful places in Rome to capture with your camera, but will also give you useful tips to boost your full potential (practical skills, visual perception, special effects and much more).

What kind of tours can you choose?

Rome is a multifaceted and amazing city. If during the day it is a bustling and vibrant place, at sunset its atmosphere changes completely and becomes quiet and enigmatic, with a very special romantic charm.

Depending on the side of the city you want to capture in your photographs you can choose between a day or night photo tour, as there are both day tours of Rome and night tours of Rome. They last about 4 hours, so you will have plenty of time to take all the pictures you want of the most beautiful corners of Rome and ask the guide for recommendations to improve your technique with the camera.

If instead of being behind the cameras, you would like to get in front of them to take home an unforgettable memory of your vacation in the Eternal City, one of the coolest activities I recommend you to do is a photo shoot in Rome with a professional photographer.

This is a fantastic idea to surprise your partner with a romantic plan or if you simply want to do something different and original during your stay in the Italian capital that you will keep a pleasant memory of on your return home.

It is true that Rome is a city of the most "instagramable" and in any corner you can take a nice "selfie" to upload to your social networks, but to be photographed by a professional photographer is another matter.

With his experience, technique and talent he will help you to get artistic, natural and fun pictures with the beauty of Rome as a backdrop. He will show you not only the most emblematic sites of the city but will also surprise you with other places in the historic center that only Romans know.

The result will be a photographic reportage of great detail and high quality that will convey a lot of emotions.

What kind of tours can you choose?

The great thing about having a professional and private photo shoot is that you can choose between several possibilities of different lengths**(from 90 minutes to** approximately3 hours ) so that this activity can be adapted to your busy schedule in Rome.

What all these tours have in common is that you will be able to customize the tour to suit your tastes and best reflect your personality.
