In Rome, you just can’t help falling in love.
4. Spanish steps
5. The Aventino
6. Fori Imperiali
The best moment you can admire it, it’s by night. You can check out the Roman Forum from Via dei Fori Imperiali, the main thoroughfare that charges from Piazza Venezia to the Colosseum.
You can love its beauty from a sort of natural balcony overlooking the Roman Forum. They were built from various emperors,and still today have the same wonderful power history can give.
7. Fontana di Trevi
Classical exemple of an epic fountain that’s famous more than every actor had worked in it. Even Federico Fellini himself could’ve chosen any other location in Rome for his iconic love scene in “La Dolce Vita”; don’t make the mistake to think that’s too touristy as a place; it isn’t! Sure, there are always about a thousand people there. Few know that the right-hand edge of the fountain is a rectangular basin with two small spouts: the fountain of lovers. There you can share one of your best Rome moments. Don’t forget to make a wish, let a coin jumping into its lucky water.
Next to those streets full of mistery that have no name, there are some darling little squares with some mosaicked tables, outdoor drinking fountains called “nasoni” and many stalls of people who handcraft jewels and accessories. It happens in Trastevere, where romanticism seems to be a signature. Here you may find a crowd of Romans and drink in a funny way to the “Bottarella“, letting owners give you some particular advices. Can’t tell you more.
9. The “lungotevere”
The most exciting place, to me, is that one that seems stolen from a movie set: the side river of Tevere, in particular, close to the Tiberina Island. There you can also enjoy drinks and events, always organized with an eye to people’s different tastes. Going across the river stepping over the bridges, could be one of the more lovely things to do in Rome. Don’t forget to take a look to Ponte Milvio, even if you’re not in love. I swear you’ll be, then.
10. Restaurants’ menus
I don’t think love’s only for people. I strongly believe that one of the most sincere kind of love is for food. So, consider that, going through Rome, you’ll get fat about 3 kgs a week. Try to fall in love – into dishes – and taste everything your eyes stumble in: “carbonara, gricia, amatriciana, trippa, cicoria, carciofi”.
The menu will be your Tinder, so I’m pretty sure you’ll find a lover; who cares about people, when food gives you that much?!
