10 most romantic places in Rome
Roman Places to fall in love, holding hands places, places with a sunset to remember. Among the ruins of millennia, ghosts of a glorious past, or from the top of the seven hills with a thousand domes designed horizon. Rome is romantic by nature. Roads, streets, squares, parks, small places forgotten. There are hundreds. Here are some, perhaps obvious, but no less beautiful to discover.
# 1 The Pincio
That of the Pincio is the historical walk dearest to the Romans, perhaps the most beautiful. From the terrace of the Villa Borghese backs the view of the Piazza del Popolo is breathtaking. The Pincio park was built in the early years of ‘800, when Rome was invaded by the French. The project, in the neoclassical style, the garden and the Piazza del Popolo is the architect Valadier. It is the first public garden in Rome by Napoleon.
# 2 The Capitol
Not the square, or the view of the Piazza Venezia. That part, perhaps, is not much romantic. But behind the Capitol, along the way they use cars to get on the hill where the town hall of the Capital, the view over the Roman Forum is incredible. At sunset it is even more.
3 # The Janiculum
From there you see really all Rome. Perhaps this would be enough to make the Janiculum the most romantic place in the capital. Theatre in 1849 the heroic defense of the Roman Republic against the French called by Pius IX in riprendergli Rome, Janiculum Hill has become, after the Unification of Italy, a large public park and a memorial of the Risorgimento.
# 4 The Aventine and the Orange Garden
The Orange Garden is the scene of one of the most beautiful scenes, certainly the most fairy-tale, the film by Paolo Sorrentino, The Great Beauty. Piazza dei Cavalieri di Malta, putting the eye to the keyhole of the Priory gate you see the dome of St. Peter. The trees of the Garden of Oranges are specially cut to let see the dome.
# 5 The Appia Antica Park
Sixteen kilometers of path in Appia Antica Park, between Roman aqueducts, trees and meadows, Roman villas and the ruins of imperial Rome.
# 6 The Basilica of Maxentius
The Basilica of Maxentius is the emblem of Great Beauty. It is the last and largest civil basilica of the monumental center of Rome. Lit up at night is beautiful.
# 7 Trinita dei Monti
A classic. The Spanish Steps is perhaps the most famous postcard of Rome (Colosseum excluded). Right on the corner of the staircase there is the home of the English poet John Keats, a master of Romanticism.
# 8 The fountain of lovers
Trevi Fountain is the most famous of Rome. But few know that on the outer right side of the fountain is a rectangular tray with two small spouts: the fountain of lovers. It is said that couples who drink at the fountain in love and remain faithful forever.
# 9 Villa Ada
Villa Ada is the second largest public park in Rome after Villa Doria-Pamphili. His summer lake at sunset is one of the most relaxing places (and romantic in Rome)
# 10 The Tiber
The most beautiful and scenic point is undoubtedly the height of the Tiber Island. Since Federico Moccia spoke of the love padlocks in his book “Three Steps Over Heaven”, also Milvio bridge is an obvious choice.0
