Place name: Nicolo Piccolomini street

Nicolo Piccolomini street (via Nicolo Piccolomini) is one of those secret streets of Rome, which is known only to the locals. It offers a beautiful view of St. Peter's dome and you will notice an interesting optical illusion: when approaching the cathedral it moves away and, and at a distance - closer.

On this street is best to travel on a motorcycle so the effect of this optical illusion will be stronger. Many Romans like to do this. In the evenings there are many motorcyclists here.

Region: Rome, Italy
