Romantic Things To Do in Rome
There’s no better place to celebrate love than in the La Dolce Vita atmosphere of Rome. Gaze hand-in-hand at the city's sumptuous art, explore its spectacular Colosseum by night, and stroll the cobblestone streets beneath soaring church domes. Here’s how to discover the romantic side of the Eternal City.
Have a Private Tête-à-tête in the Sistine Chapel
Michelangelo’s masterfully frescoed ceiling in the Sistine Chapel is one of the most famous works of art in the world, but it’s hard to savor its magnificence when packed elbow-to-elbow with other visitors. Opt for a private early morning or evening tour, when you can pause under the iconic Creation of Adam in perfect silence to enjoy this once-in-a-lifetime experience—just the two of you.
Visit the Colosseum under the Stars
This imposing ancient Roman amphitheater is impressive by day, but truly dazzling when illuminated at night. Join a night tour of the Colosseum and other ancient Roman sights by moonlight for a uniquely romantic stroll back in time to the age of Imperial Rome.
Book a Couple's Tour of Rome by Night
Rome is particularly enchanting once the sun goes down, and touring the city on foot or by private car in the evening spices up your sightseeing with a romantic twist. Cap off your tour with a rooftop dinner overlooking the city, or a wine tasting. Consider a sunset food tour through picturesque neighborhoods such as Prati or Trastevere.
Get to the Heart through the Stomach
The best place to bond is in the kitchen, especially when you can prepare meals together that invoke memories of your romantic visit to Rome. Take a pasta class together for a hands-on lesson on how to replicate classic Roman dishes at home.
