I have never been to Paris, so maybe I shouldn’t speak too soon – but for me the city of love is definitely Rome. Everything about the city oozes romance. It’s architecture, it’s laid back vibe, it’s beauty.. it is the perfect little place for a couple to explore. These are some of the places I would recommend exploring with your significant other..Β πŸ˜‰

Trevi Fountain

Carved out of the side of a building, this fountain isΒ absolutely amazing. It’s grandeur and style is breathtaking and trust me when I say that visiting this monument once will never be enough. Although it gets quite crowded during the day, at night time the crowds significantly die down and you can revel in its beauty under the moonlight.

The Sistine Chapel

The sistine chapelΒ is one of the most famous places in the Vatican. A small series of steps through a dimly lit hallway lead you down to this amazing art filled room. There is barely an inch left uncovered in this church which tells a beautiful story. Completely hand painted by Michelangelo it is hard not to be in awe at the beauty of this room.

Colosseum

As amazing as it is on the outside, it’s even better from the inside! The architecture which has stood tall for almost 2,000 is one of the most amazing places to explore in Rome. Your imagination will run wild looking looking around this ancient amphitheatre.

Piazza Navona

Spanish Steps

The Piazza Novana is beautiful, especially on a sunny day. With architecture surrounding the square and fountains everywhere you turn it is a wonderful place to just walk around and relax with your other half.

Overall Rome is one of the most beautiful cities I have ever been to. It’s difficult not to get lost in the beauty of the city and it is somewhere I would recommend getting lost in with your other half so you can enjoy the beauty, and the romance. I mean, you can’t spell romance without Roma! πŸ˜ƒ

  1. Rome was neat to see but for us, the most romantic place we have visited so far is Lake Como. So charming and quaint and the views are magnificent! Lovely, cozy cafes around every corner and all with lake/mountain views. I wrote posts about several Italian cities that we visited on our honeymoon, if you are interested! πŸ™‚ I enjoyed your post and photos!

    1. Lake Como is definitely somewhere on my list! I am hearing more and more about it recently and it just looks amazing! I will give your blog a read definitely.. and thanks for stopping by! πŸ™‚

      1. It is absolutely breath taking! You will not be disappointed! We don’t like huge crowds so we stayed in Menaggio and Varenna looked very nice as well! Bellagio was MUCH busier if you like being around lots of people! There are so many quaint villages along the lake that pretty much anywhere will offer fantastic views! πŸ™‚

  2. Your photos are beautiful. I went to see the Trevi Fountain at night, when it was all lit up, fabulous. Not so romantic for me, I was with my three sisters and my mother. lol.

  3. Rome is awesome, but Paris is pretty great!! Lol! Bruges is also quite romantic, though having two kids alone can put a bit of a damper on the romance wherever we are.

  4. I’m sure they didn’t kill the romance completely! I can’t wait to visit Paris in the future and see if it lives up to the hype! Is there much to do in Bruges? I have heard it is lovely but I am unsure of what is actually there (should have paid more attention to the film ‘In Bruges!’)

  5. Oh but wait until you visit Paris! Walking down the Champs-Γ‰lysΓ©es on a autumn morn with the sunlight peaking through the trees that adorn the boulevard. Or meandering down the seine hand in hand with the boats passing by. Or simply just getting lost down any rue and stumbling across the most dainty cafes and patisseries you’ve ever seen. Can’t wait to visit Rome in December, but I’ve got to shout loud for Paris πŸ˜‰
