Rome. The very name of this ancient city gives off an air of romance. So it's little wonder that Italy’s stunning capital is seen as one of the most romantic places in the world. Valentine’s Day city breaks usually feature romantic walks, world-class restaurants, sensational sights and mesmerising landmarks - and Rome has it all, and then some.
We’ve put together some of our favourite romantic things to do in Rome. One thing we absolutely insist on is that you don’t forget your camera, as you’ll want to keep these memories forever.
There are few things more romantic than taking a gentle row boat and immersing yourself in some beautiful scenery with that special someone. The Laghetto di Villa Borghese is a stunning lake in the northern part of the city, that features the Temple of Aesculapius on a manmade island - the perfect backdrop for some romantic Instagram snaps with your other half!
Ponte Sisto, also known as the “Kissing Bridge”, is a stunning arched bridge that spans the River Tiber. The bridge itself connects two trendy nightlife areas; Campo de Fiori and Trastevere, so it’s in the perfect location for a Valentine’s night out with your partner. We recommend watching the sunset on the bridge for a truly unforgettable and romantic experience during your Valentine’s Day holiday.
Offering breathtaking views of the city, Janiculum Hill is the perfect place to just sit and enjoy being with your partner. Overlook the stunning Roman skyline, away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre, and enjoy one of the most romantic places in the world.
Italian food is known for being mouthwateringly tasty - we’re thinking of delicious cheeses, tantalising seafood and, of course, pasta cooked to perfection. However, it’s not just the food that makes Roman restaurants stand out from the rest. The eateries here offer some of the most spectacular views in the world. Imagine enjoying a romantic meal with that special someone, with the Colosseum as your backdrop. That dream can only become a reality in Italy’s gorgeous capital.
