The Eternal City is known to many as Rome, Italy; and this is a fantastic city for couples to visit and celebrate their eternal love for each other. Couples can venture through the city and the countryside exploring monuments, piazzas, cobblestone lined streets, and magnificent fountains.
One of the best times to visit most of the monuments is at nighttime when they are lit up and glowing. The Spanish Steps and the Trevi Fountain are at the top of the list of best places for couples to embrace each other while the moon is shining high above in the sky. Before couples go out into the night to visit these spectacular places, they should eat at one of the best restaurants in Rome. La Pergola at the Waldorf Hilton Astoria has a large selection of gourmet foods that every newlywed couple will enjoy. The price may be a little high, but the experience and the panoramic views of the city from the terrace are more than worth the cost.
During the daytime hours, couples who are on their honeymoon in Rome, will want to walk along the Appian Way. This walkway was built approximately 2,300 years ago to connect Rome with Apulia and it is the perfect destination to eat a picnic lunch, listen to the birds, and watch the sheep that are grazing around every corner.
The art at the Villa Farnesina is beautiful and couples can see how the legend of Raphael being madly in love when he painted the inside of this palazzo could be true. Each and every one of the frescoes that he painted are more beautiful than the one before. Couples will be mesmerized by the voluptuous Venus, the beautiful Galatea, and all of the cherubs who carry love arrows. Throughout these paintings, couples will find themselves reminiscing about how they fell in love.
There are plenty of ancient ruins in Rome and newlyweds should not steer away from these sites, because they are on their honeymoon. The Roman Forum and the Colosseum are two of the must-see ruins in all of Rome. The Pantheon is a temple for every God and it has been the most well-preserved monument from Imperial Rome.
Vatican City is a city by itself, but it is inside Rome and many couples will want to walk through St. Peter’s Basilica and the Vatican Museums. Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel is the most sought after destination after the Vatican, of course.
Rome is one of the cities that has their own Love Locks Bridge and couples go to this bridge to attach a lock that symbolizes their eternal love for each other. Once the lock has been closed tight, couples will then throw the key to the lock into the Tevere to show that nothing will ever undo their love for each other.
A honeymoon in Rome is absolutely fantastic and couples will find that this is a great place to start their new life together. The couples’ hearts are filled with love, the city is filled with love, and the locals have lots of love to share. In the end, love is what every honeymoon is about.
