Rome has the world's oldest shopping centre

Trajan’s Market in Rome is the world’s oldest shopping centre, it is opposite the Colosseum and located on the Via dei Fori Imperiali. The shopping centre was built between 100 and 110 AD. They has five stories of shops that sold a variety of products ranging from fresh fish, herbs and spices, wine and oil. You can still see the remains of the marble floor and library today. For anyone who is interested in visiting Trajan Markets, they are open 9am to 7pm from Tuesdays to Sundays. The entry fee to the markets is 9.50 euros and if you are travelling by public transport the nearest metro stations are Colosseo or Cavour, Line B.

I took some photos of Rome during the golden hour, I had been walking around the city all night and managed to take them in the early hours, I liked the way the streets were lit up. to photograph were near the Spanish Steps the Fontana della Barcaccia which is a Baroque style fountain that is found at the foot of the Spanish Steps in Rome's Piazza di Spagna. The translation means fountain of the old boat.
