A romantic getaway for Valentine's Day? If picked Rome as destination, here we point out the places can’t be missed.
Piazza di Spagna and the Spanish Steps
They are not only are two of the most attractive places of Roman nightlife. The square, the Barcaccia Fountain and the steps intertwine in a very romantic set. All of these tourists could ruin the atmosphere? Our advice is to reach them at dawn or, even better, at sunset, the silence and the magic of blurred lights will trigger the spark.
A little treat. Next to the staircase, you can visit the final resting place of one of the greatest poets of English Romanticism, John Keats. The house-museum contains a fine collection of paintings, sculptures, manuscripts, and first editions of the works of Keats, Percy Bysshe Shelley and Lord Byron.
It is said that the Roman girls made their boyfriend drink the water of the fountain, then throwing the glass away as a sign of eternal fidelity.
Go there at evening or at night, when its travertine shines illuminated by artificial lights: the show is guaranteed. Ah yes, do not forget to throw behind the classic coin.
Pincio and Villa Borghese
The one of Pincio is one of the Romans and not Romans favorite walks. Follow it hand by hand, from Piazza del Popolo to the Pincio hill. The rooftop terrace offers a great view over the city. For an appetizer or a light lunch, stop at the Coffee of the Pincio, the elegant Casina Valadier - there are also picnic packs. Continue your walk in the green oasis of Villa Borghese, to the Garden of the Lake. You are romantic? Hop on one of the rowing boats and reach the Temple of Aesculapius: the set is perfect for a breathtakingkiss.
The Zodiac (or Lover trail)
You can find it on the slopes of Monte Mario. From up here, you can embrace with one glance much of the city and its surroundings, from the Forum to the Castelli Romani. In the panoramin viewpoint there is a small restaurant, perfect for a dinner by candlelight. If you prefer some pampering, choose one of the park benches and enjoy the quiet of the lookout.
Otherwise known as Park Savelli, it awaits for you on the Aventine Hill, in the Ripa district. The blond Tiber flowes just below. But if you'll raise his eyes, over the roofs of Rome you will see some of the most important monuments of the city.
You're still not satiated with all of this beauty? Not far from the park is Piazza dei Cavalieri di Malta and the Villa of the Priory of Malta. Between the boxwoods hedges see you can the dome of St. Peter.
Villa Doria Pamphili
It is the largest public park in Rome. You can find it in the neighborhood Gianicolense, just outside the walls, on the Janiculum. Ponds with turtles, swans and ducks, pine forests and walks abound. If you want someplace quiet, away from the chaos of the city, you have found it.
Go there when the sun goes down. For an irresistible glimpse, our advice is to reach Ponte Flaminio. If the sky is clear, the moon will reflect in the waters of the Tiber. Only for true romantic people.
A little farther on, that's Ponte Milvio, made famous by the padlocks hung by young lovers as a symbol of eternal love.
