That’s a tough question! It depends on what you’re after, but all over the historic center is wonderful. I personally love the rioni Ripa, Sant’Angelo, Campitelli, and Trastevere for the characteristic narrow streets in various colors. I find the streets around Via Giulia particularly are of interest. The area from Piazza Navona to Piazza del Popolo is full of interesting shops and streets, as well as famous sites like the amazing Pantheon and the Spanish Steps.
All the major areas are picturesque like you won’t believe, so there are plenty of ‘best places’. The trick is more about the timing: early morning for east facing areas to get that beautiful warm ray of light, plus a lot less people. Trevi Fountain and St Peters especially for morning photos. Late afternoon for west facing such as Spanish steps, Colosseum. Many of the great areas like the Pantheon, Piazza Navona have alleys that approach them from different angles so explore these for the best framing shots. Get a copy of “Secret Rome” by Ginevra Lovatelli as it mentions a number of great viewing angles. Enjoy.
My favorite spot to take pictures in Rome are the Pantheon and the Trastevere neighborhood. Piazza Navona is good too, lot of people. Check picaspot. com
