Best Places to Propose in Rome
If you’re looking to propose in a city with that is full of romance and history, Rome is the place for you to go. What can I possibly say about Rome that hasn’t already been said? It’s truly magnificent– the history, the ruins, the art, and, oh my goodness, the food. Trust me, you don’t have to be a history buff to appreciate Rome in all of its glory. If you’re a lover of beauty and food, Rome will not let you down. Make a statement by proposing in one of the world’s oldest and most powerful cities. Here are some of the best places to propose in Rome:
1. Trevi Fountain
I’m sure you’ve heard of gorgeous Trevi Fountain, but simply hearing about it or seeing a picture doesn’t do the wonder of this spot justice. If you’d like to avoid the crowds, I suggest taking your loved one there at late at night or at dawn. While you’re there, be sure to throw a coin into the fountain. It’s legend that if you throw a coin into the Trevi Fountain, you’re guaranteed to come back to Rome (maybe for your honeymoon!). After throwing the coin in, tell your sweetheart you’d like to come back with her as your wife. Then propose to her with one of our solitaire diamond rings.
2. Villa Borghese Gardens
You’ll find the vast Villa Borghese gardens near the Galleria Borghese museum. This area began as a vineyard, and a cardinal started turning it into a park in the 17th century. You’ll have your pick of picturesque spots to pop the question. There are ancient buildings, lakes, and fountains galore. You can take a leisurely stroll through the gardens, rent a bike, or even take a boat out on one of the lakes. If you’ve been looking for a more relaxing, natural spot to propose away from the crowds, this is definitely the place to go.
3. Aventine Hill
Looking for a romantic spot with a panoramic view of Rome? Ancient Rome was built on seven hills, and Aventine Hill is one of the most beautiful. This area is a little quieter and will give you breathtaking views of the city. This spot also presents a variety of proposal options. You could plan a dinner picnic and propose as the sun sets over Rome. Or, if you’re looking for something even more special, try to find the secret keyhole that gives you a spectacular view of St. Peter’s Basilica.
4. Trastevere Neighborhood
If you’re looking for something a bit less touristy, but still picturesque and romantic, head to the Trastevere neighborhood. You’ll find this neighborhood on the west bank of the Tiber River. Fun fact: it’s name comes from the Latin phrase “trans Tiberim,” which means “beyond the Tiber.” Here, you can find a spot along the river to get down on one knee or you can venture into any of the authentic restaurants. You won’t be disappointed by the food! There are also plenty of romantic alleyways in this Roman neighborhood, which might prove a great spot to ask your sweetheart to marry you.
Whichever of our best places to propose you choose, make sure you have one of our solitaire diamond rings ready.
