All you need is love: the 5 best romantic places in Rome

This is not a secret: Rome is a really romantic city. But are you sure you know all the places where you can spend some nice time with your partner? No, we are not talking about Spanish Steps or Trevi Fountain, but about 5 “hidden gems” you must know.

Don’t panic and check our list: your love will be stronger than ever!

  • Piazza Santa Maria in Trastevere

Santa Maria in Trastevere is one of the most beautiful churches in town. The square is as stunning as the church and it treasures a magic atmosphere during the night. Just go there and whisper: “I love you”.

  • Piazza Di Pietra

In front of the Temple of Hadrian, during the night, you can find a very particular light. It is often not so crowdy and for this reason it is the perfect place to canoodle a little bit.

  • Giardino degli Aranci- Garden of Oranges

A small park in the Aventine Hill which offers a wonderful view of monuments and roof tops of the Eternal City. We bet someone proposed here.

  • Lungotevere

Along the River Tiber you can enjoy some of the most spectacular views of the city. Moreover, during Summertime, it becomes full of bars, restaurants and events. We think it keeps its romantic side-you can also have a drink while flirting.

  • Parco degli Acquedotti

Flowers, trees, ancient remains and good air. A walk into history and nature.That’s impossible to have a fight here. Only love, love and love again.

If you don’t have a partner, you have two possibilities: you can find him/her before coming to Rome or…in Rome!



The 3 Best Spots in Rome for Lovers on Valentine’s Day

Rome unquestionably is one of the most romantic cities in the world (actually, The One). On the occasion of the upcoming Valentine’s Day, here’s our list of 3 sights to visit on a romantic ‘In Love Tour’ plus one special hint!

1. Fontanina degli innamorati “The small fountain of lovers”

fontaninaWhere else to start a romantic tour than the beautiful Trevi Fountain? Make sure you toss a coin for your return in Rome than head to the right external side of the monument, where you find the lovers’ fountain, a rectangular marble basin without any particular sign. The legend says Roman soldiers before leaving the city for service came here with their sweethearts to swear eternal faithfullness by drinking from the water together then breaking the glass. The virgin water “acqua vergine” assured they would never forget about Rome and their love left behind. So follow the tradition, drink from the water of faithful love with your loved one!

2. Ponte degli innamorati “Lovers’ bridge”

milvio lucchettiThe story of the lovers’ bridge is a with or without you for the City of Rome. It started ten years ago with a cult novel of Federico Moccia, Tre metri sopra il cielo where the couple attaches a padlock on a metal bar of the bridge then throws the key in the Tiber as the demonstration of their unbreakable love. Locals and tourists made a tradition of it, transforming the ancient bridge to the living testimony of Everlasting Love – until, as the City hall declared, the massive iron weight and rust of the thousands and thousands of locks started to cause serious damages to the stone structure. Despite the removal of the love locks in 2012 the Milvian Bridge remains one of the most romantic spots for the couples, especially at sunset! Lovers, on the other hand, became very creative in finding other sights around the city to clip their padlocks on.

3. Vicolo degli Innamorati “The path of lovers”

zodiaco1Getting here is quite tricky with public transportation but, without doubt worth the hassle. Monte Mario’s 139mt height, named Lo Zodiaco, offers a breathtaking view over the Eternal City and the Roman Castles area. There’s no more romantic place to be after sunset, looking at the starred sky holding your loved one close… and take a walk on the path of lovers. In the Monte Mario Park you can also visit the Astronomical Observatory.

+1 Special Around-Trip Chiesa degli Innamorati & Ristorante delgi innamorati

About an hour drive from Rome you can visit the Church of Saint Valentine, la Basilica di San Valentino in Terni. Saint Valentine, bishop and saint patron of the city of Terni (Interamna), died as martyr in Rome as the patron of young lovers on 14th February 273. If you choose to visit the basilica of lovers, on the way back to Rome you may choose to stop at the unique Solo per due Restaurant, which has its particularity in having but one table for two! A complete restaurant for the sole two of you, is there anything more romantic than that? Of course, reservation is a must.twofinger
