7 romantic things to do in Rome

Rome is the city whose silhouette, whose stories, whose colors speak of love and magic. Here are seven suggestions to spend a day as perfect lovers.

Eat a maritozzo with cream while crossing Ponte Sisto

A winning combination: the sweet tradition and the most romantic bridge in Rome. An evocative view, a play of lights on the Tiber that flows slowly. Crossing Ponte Sisto is a must to get to Trastevere or Campo de’ Fiori, indulging in a sin of gluttony with the soft bread with whipped cream, which in ancient times was given by young man couples to their betrothed.

Admire an unusual view of St. Peter’s from the Passeggiata del Gelsomino (Jasmine Promenade)

A little known place, but capable of giving unexpected emotions. Walking along this former track of the Vatican railway, transformed into a romantic promenade, you can admire the dome of St. Peter’s and take an original souvenir photo. In summer, the Walk of Jasmine is filled with fragrant white flowers that give the name to the unusual path.

Exchange a kiss on the lake of Villa Borghese

An authentic corner of paradise, with exotic plants, ducks, birds, and ducks. The pond of Villa Borghese is ideal for a romantic kiss on a colorful rowboat, under the impenetrable gaze of muses, nymphs, and gods of the splendid Temple of Aesculapius.

Read a poem in front of the Keats-Shelley House

“I cannot exist without you. I forget everything except seeing you again,” wrote John Keats, one of England’s greatest poets. His last home is located in Piazza di Spagna, to the right of the Spanish Steps. The house museum is one of the most evocative and romantic places in Rome. If you love poetry, you will be moved by the memory of the verses of the great English romantic writers.

Hold hands in front of the sunset from the Orange Garden

To give a single color to the sunsets of Rome would be impossible. Pink, orange, gold, purple are really unique and indescribable shades. One of the most amazing views of the city is the one you can admire from the Orange Garden. Immortalized in the movie “La Grande Bellezza,” the stunning viewpoint takes its name from the many bitter orange trees present. You won’t need words, just Rome and its sunset.

Share a supplì with a view of the Fori Imperiali

Street food is a characteristic of the capital. If it is combined with a breathtaking view, the combination is perfect. The evocative light of the blue hour of dusk, the millenary shadows of the Imperial Forums, and… the hand of a romantic Rome! Between one mouthwatering bite and another, you will experience an evening in the name of love.

Follow tradition at the Fountain of Lovers

It’s evening, and the lights illuminate the beautiful Trevi Fountain: it’s the perfect time to toss your coin together and make a wish. Then, look to the right: on the outer side of the fountain, there is a rectangular basin with two small spouts, the Fountain of Lovers. According to an ancient rite of Roman tradition, by drinking from this little fountain, you will remain in love and faithful forever.
