In Rome you can find unusual Nicolo Piccolomini street, about which not so many travelers know.
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.
