If you are also looking for a place to make your marriage proposal, you can not miss these suggestions!!!
1. Orange Garden and the wonderful view from the keyhole
Located on the Aventino hill, the Giardino degli Aranci, together with the nearby Roseto Comunale, is one of the most romantic places in the city where you can walk and take a picture with a beautiful panoramic view.
Made even more famous by the scenes of the film “La Grande Bellezza” by Sorrentino, is a must for film lovers, and a stage that gives pleasant satisfaction to tourists and lovers!
To conclude the walk, go in front of the door of the Priory of the Knights of Malta and bring your eye to the keyhole: the view on the dome of St. Peter (“the Cuppolone”), framed by the trees of the Garden, will amaze you!
2. Mouth of Truths
To test the feelings for your lover, you can not miss a stop at the famous Bocca della Verità.
The popular belief wants that, to demonstrate his loyalty to his spouse, he puts his hand in his mouth, claiming he never betrayed the other. It is believed that the stone, having powers of oracle, can recognize the truth and “close the mouth” in case false is said.
3. The Trevi Fountain and the Lovers’ Fountain
The famous Bernini fountain is a fixed stop for every tourist in Rome, even more so on Valentine’s Day. It is tradition to turn away from the fountain and throw a coin, but beware: you have to do it by bringing your right hand over your left shoulder!
A dime is for the guaranteed return to Rome; the second is to meet the love of your life; the third coin is to fulfill the desire to get married.
Have you already found the love of your life but are not ready for marriage? No need to avoid the square!
Few people know that in addition to the famous fountain, the square also houses the “Fontanella degli innamorati”.
The fountain, which is located on the right side of the fountain, has two straws; tradition has it that two lovers who simultaneously drink water from the two mouths, remain in love forever. Really very romantic !!!
4. The Pincio
The Pincio represents the romantic historical walk for the Romans, on foot you can get “easily” of the staircase of “Trinità dei Monti” in Piazza di Spagna, or from the Pincio climb, from Piazza del Popolo.
Both routes pass through some of the most fascinating places in Rome, ideal for a walk with your lover.
From the terrace of the Pincio, overlooking Piazza del Popolo, you can admire a wonderful view of Rome: very romantic at sunset!
5. View from the Campidoglio
Coming down from behind the Campidoglio, along via di San Pietro in Carcere, one of the most romantic streets of the Capital runs: from here you can enjoy a wonderful panoramic view of the Fori Imperiali, you can’t not stop for a photo with a background breathtaking!
6. Ponte Sant’Angelo
The ancient Sant’Angelo bridge, built by Emperor Hadrian, is one of the most scenic spots to make beautiful and romantic photos: The striking marble statues, Castel Sant’Angelo in the background or the panoramic view of the river, with the Dome of St. Peter in the skyline. There is nothing to choose which one!
