”La vita e bella. La vita e amore.” is what Guido, the main character of probably one of the most wonderful movies created to this day that takes place in Italy, used to say. Indeed, if you take a stroll through Rome by your lovers’ side, you’ll be often quoting Guido – the always smiling film character.
Rome means history, culture, but above all, here you’ll find an atmosphere so unique that it cannot be matched by any other European city. It has a never ending lively, bohemian and romantic vibe.
Trastevere is one of the many unseen faces of Rome and a place that „breathes” youth and urban culture! Here you can find an abundancy of shops, bars and life in general. The young and talented photographer & blogger, Dragoș Asaftei, had this to say about this area of the city:
„I’ve been to Rome twice in the past, but never had the opportunity to really visit and discover this city. Thus, I’ve enjoyed myself the last time I’ve been here. Rome had charmed me at first by the way it managed to conserve its history and to „tell” it hundreds of years later. After some more sightseeing, I’ve stumbled upon Trastevere, the place in which I’ve spent most of my time. It’s a more withdrawn area, not so crowded like the city center, but just as fascinating: the buildings seem to be taken out straight out of a movie, the restaurants with small terraces just make you want to sit down and enjoy some delicious ice-cream!”
Having over 139 meters, Monte Mario is the tallest hillock of Rome. Even if it’s harder to access, the effort of getting on its plateau is definitely worth it. The view is breathtaking! If we’ve convinced you to visit this amazing place, we suggest you do not tell your significant other – the surprise is going to make for one of the most beautiful memories you’ll ever have. Gabriele, an English tourist wrote on TripAdvisor about this place:
”This location on a clear day gives you one of the best views of Rome. Wonderful view!”
The little oasis of green fields and quiet surroundings has the advantage of being right in the heart of the historical part of the city which can be found between Piazza del Popolo and the Spagna Square. Climb Passeggiata del Pincio and at the end of the stairs a charming view awaits. Pincio is without a doubt one of the most photographed place in all of Rome. The interesting part is that right next to this landscape you can find a small square that bears the name of our Romanian capital.
An Australian expat wrote: “we stumbled across this lovely area by accident while sightseeing Piazza del Popolo. It was a pleasure to stroll in the gardens on the hot day. We discovered an amazing viewpoint on top of the Pincian Hill but had to wait a while to get a free spot as the place was fairly crowded. Many tourists wanted to take photos of the square below as well as the city panorama.”
Not necessarily the most romantic place, it IS however the home of one of the best ice-creams in all of Italy! It’s an unspoken rule: as long as the sun is up, you should have at least one scoop of ice-cream! At Frigidarium, near Campo de Fiori, you can find addictive homemade ice-cream. The Frigidarium Gelatery is currently 8th place on the Top 725 Dessert Locations in Rome.
Sarah, an Australian tourist, wrote on TripAdvisor about this place:
”We have tried at least 6 gelato places around Rome before this one and this one is a standout.”
Fontana di Trevi
Is there any need for further introduction? During the day, it is indeed a very crowded place, but even so, it would be a real shame if you couldn’t come here and make a wish alongside your loved one. Maybe you’ll wish to revisit Rome sooner than expected and say again: ”La vita e bella. La vita e amore.”?
