Sunrise over Rome from the Gianicolo

Shot on iPhone 11 Pro Max

I woke up at 5 AM and debated going back to sleep or getting up for the day. I looked outside and the sky was a mix of purples and oranges. So I headed out. I climbed Gianicolo Hill, where I got this shot. Then I headed down into Trastevere, across the Tiber, a coffee break at Sant’Eustachio near the Pantheon, and then home before 8 AM.
