In honor of Valentine’s Day, here are 5 of the absolute best places to kiss in Rome, in no particular order. And just so you know, it was really hard to choose just 5 out of the many spots in Rome that are perfect for a romantic rendezvous. It’s such a romantic city, there are way too many to list!
VILLA BORGHESE PARK
Villa Borghese Park is the largest urban park in central Rome, and the Galleria Borghese has been called one of the best museums in the world. Take your time marveling at the treasures inside the gallery, then take your sweetheart on a romantic walk through the outdoor gardens and along the lake. We’re sure you’ll stumble upon a quiet path with incredible views where you can both lean in for a kiss.
THE SPANISH STEPS
Make like Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck in Roman Holiday and recreate this famous scene the Spanish Steps. Afterwards, you and your sweetheart can pose with a kiss, then climb up to the balcony all the way at the top of the steps. Try to time your visit close to sunset, and you’ll be rewarded with a stunningly romantic view.
Late afternoon into early evening is almost magical in Piazza Navona. The street musicians start to play and the lights cast a soft glow on the piazza and the Fountain of Neptune in its center. Take a seat at the fountain’s edge and hold each other close as you watch the world go by. When the moment is right, lean in for that perfect kiss.
With its narrow cobblestone streets, quaint sidewalk cafes, and ornate medieval buildings, there’s a romantic spot around nearly every corner in Trastevere. To get there, cross one of the many pedestrian bridges over the Tiber and make your way toward the central piazza. Before you get there, we guarantee you’ll find quite a few perfect spots to share the perfect kiss.
ONE OF THE MANY PEDESTRIAN BRIDGES OVER THE TIBER RIVER
Imagine standing on a cobblestone bridge over the Tiber River, and yes, almost any one of them will do. You’ve got a beautiful view everywhere you look. Soft lights illuminate the ancient buildings around you, the waters of the Tiber sparkle below you in the moonlight, and the sky above is filled with stars. Seriously, what are you waiting for?
