There are incredible places, corners and views that can one can discover by wandering around Rome away from the usual routes: they are there for those tourists who are not in a hurry. They’re for them to take a photo or a selfie, either to keep as a souvenir or send home to friends and family. And there are so many more locations that can work as a backdrop for declarations of love and stolen kisses!
Rome for lovers, off the beaten path
While it’s lovely to walk hand in hand through the avenues of Villa Borghese, hug with Rome’s famous pines of Rome (as sung by Giuseppe Gioachino Belli or Ottorino Respighi) in the background, or let yourself be enchanted by the Spanish Steps… Why not look for a special location, perhaps to declare your love or to propose? Days are getting longer, so there are plenty more opportunities to enjoy the city and its wonders!
That’s when Rome can become your wing man – and that’s what that old song says, anyway!
So let’s set off on a hunt for picturesque settings that can seal and mark your unforgettable moments. They’re intended for new couples, for those who have been together for a long time and, why not?, for lonely hearts of all ages who are out there looking for love!
We have picked for you three sites that deserve to be your top destinations in Rome if you’re a romantic: follow the recommendations from the experts at Mia Personal Concierge!
“Più non vanno gli innamorati pe’ lungotevere a rubasse li baci a mille pe’ sotto gli arberi” (“Lovers don’t walk by the river anymore, stealing kisses in the thousands under the trees there”) is another well-known Roman song, praising a lesser known feature of the river crossing the city.
While it’s not as blond as it was in the olden days, and even though it’s surrounded by cars speeding by and the hectic pace of a modern city, there is one place where the Tiber is still in touch with its ancient self. Across the road from the Great Synagogue of Rome in the Jewish Ghetto, Tiber Island awaits you!
Don’t be put off by the comings and goings from the hospital there – look for the stairs to the riverbank to find some quiet and privacy, with the rush of the Tiber flowing by as the only soundtrack to your declaration. Don’t forget that in the summer the area is mostly closed off for a festival taking place right on the island’s riverbanks.
Bonus tip: Nearby, do not miss the opportunity of taking a super romantic walk at sunset among the ruins of the Baths of Caracalla, which during the summer season turns into the outdoors stage for the Opera House.
