When it comes to romantic destinations for couples, does it get any better than Rome? If you’re looking for a truly special place to celebrate the beginning of your married life or just a romantic city break for two, look no further than Italy‘s stunning capital city. It evokes romance at every step boasting charming culture and rich heritage, iconic archaeological sights, awe-inspiring art, the beautiful Mediterranean climate and it’s delicious Italian cuisine.

A city of history

No description of Rome could possibly ignore the amazing history that seeps from every street in the city. Take a trip with your beloved to the Colosseum, completed in the 1st century AD and still the largest amphitheatre ever built. With its capacity to hold over 80,000 spectators, it rivals even today’s modern stadiums!

You can’t walk far in Rome without seeing parts of its wonderful past, from ancient Roman ruins to glorious churches and cathedrals like the Pantheon. What better way to start your journey together than savouring this timeless city?

A city of culture

If you’re a couple who like art and culture, you’ll feel close to heaven at the Vatican City museums. The famous St Peter’s Basilica looks as stunning today as it did when it was built and it’s just as impressive from the inside.

No trip to Rome would be complete without a trip to the Trevi Fountain. This breathtaking stone fountain has been one of the highlights of a Roman holiday for generations of travellers. Even better, a local legend says that if you throw a coin over your shoulder into the fountain, you’re bound to return to Rome one day in the future.

A city of food

Rome has an unbeatable reputation as the food and drink capital of the world – and for a very good reason. The city is awash with top quality restaurants with rooftop bars to suit all budgets. Whether you’re more in the mood for pizza or pasta on your honeymoon, the globally well-loved Italian cuisine can’t be beaten.

What better way to enjoy your honeymoon than sipping wine with your new spouse as the sun goes down? Rome is sure to give you spectacular memories you’ll be talking about for decades to come.

Other romantic activities on offer include a stroll around Rome’s most charming square, Piazza Navona or a horse carriage ride through the cobbled passageways of Rome. Take a cruise tour on the Tiber River or enjoy a intimate picnic in the Villa Borghese garden. Stop off for a romantic candle-lit dinner at the Terrace rooftop restaurant or enjoy some Gelato at one of the many Ice cream shops, a visit to Giolitti is a must. In addition, attend an opera night in Teatro Dell’ Opera di Roma or shop at Campo de’ Fiori Market.

Couples will be spoilt for choice when it comes to staying at a romantic high-end boutique hotel whether you stay in the centre of Rome for great sightseeing places or near the Spanish steps which was built in the 18th century which connects Piazza di Spagna to Piazza Trinita del Monti. We love the ultra-chic 5 star boutique hotel, JK Place Roma, located just a stone’ throw away from Rome’s iconic Spanish steps. However, if you want to be in the centre of it, then we would recommend the 5 star Palazzo Manfredi which features a pool and rooftop bar overlooking the iconic beautiful Colosseum.

To make it an unforgettable romantic experience for both, Rome can also be combined with other parts of Italy including Amalfi coast, Sorrento, Sicily, Venice, Florence, Tuscany and Capri.
