As a newlywed, there are fewer places in the world more romantic than the city of Rome. This is an ideal destination for your honeymoon where you can celebrate one another the lifelong journey you have just embarked on. Here are some travel tips and suggestions for newlyweds traveling through romantic Rome.
Start your vacation in Rome the right way with a romantic ride on a horse-drawn carriage. Enjoy the picturesque scenery of the Spanish Steps (Piazza di Spagna) and continue your journey to the centro storico streets for your first taste of everything Rome. Be sure to stop for a bite to eat or even just a little treat such as chocolates or gelato. End your carriage ride at the well-known Villa Borghese park where you and your partner will be able to enjoy a picnic, take a boat ride, or just soak up the view upon the terrace.
For a fun day trip that is a bit off the beaten track, you may look into traveling about 30 minutes outside of Rome to see Tivoli’s Villa D’Este. Here you can enjoy stunning gardens and fantastic water fountains for the ultimate romantic experience. At night, you can enjoy a candle lit setting inside that is outrageously beautiful.
Don’t forget to see some Roman landmarks! The Trevi Fountain is a staple of Roman culture and a location you cannot miss out on. In the daytime it is bustling with locals and tourists, however at night the scenery is exquisitely enchanting. Make sure that you both throw a coin into the fountain for good luck in life and in your marriage! To make sure your wish comes true, toss the coin over your shoulder with your back towards the fountain. You hold the coin in your left hand and throw it over the right shoulder. According to Roman legends, doing this will also ensure that you will one day return to Rome again.
Finally, all lovers need to stroll along Lover’s Lane. Head over to northern Rome to enjoy the illuminated, vibrant, passion-filled Ponte Milvio Bridge. This location was made famous by an Italian movie, “I Really Want You” and has since then been a destination for lovers from all over the world. Here, lovers not only enjoy the scenery and a stroll, but they can also participate in a wonderful and symbolic tradition where a padlock is attached to chains on 24 pillars and the key is thrown away into the river to represent your commitment and unwavering passion and love.
If you are a newlywed and are in search of the ideal, perfect destination to celebrate, look no further than Rome. Rome has the charm, culture, and romance that all couples dream of experiencing for a one of a kind trip you will never forget. There is no better way to begin your lifelong commitment to one another than by strolling along Lover’s Lane, making a wish at the Trevi Fountain, or cuddling up to one another for a horse drawn carriage ride through the city of Rome.
