That’s Amore is why Travel and Leisure has ranked three Italian cities among the top 10 most romantic destinations in the world: Venice, Florence and Rome.
But also Italy's picturesque seaside villages, beautiful countryside, lakes, and historic cities are filled with romantic settings, views, hotels, and restaurants. What could be more romantic than proposing under Juliet's famed balcony at the Casa di Giulietta in Verona? The lovely architecture and the balcony will make her feel like the fabled Juliet and when you propose you become part of history.
In a fairytale castle, an ancient basilica, a Venetian Villa or an informal vineyard, exchange your vows alone or surrounded by family and friends.
Enjoy the finest Italian cuisine, delicious wines and magical atmosphere on Lake Garda, Lake Como or Lake Orta, or in Asolo, places beloved by poets and musicians.
Rose-laden belvederes, hanging gardens, breathtaking mountain vistas, Veneto, Trentino and Friuli Venezia Giulia are still secret and secluded regions, but their elegant, peaceful towns, enchanting castles and palatial villas immersed in picturesque vineyards are glamorous to enhance romance.
The Tuscan countryside is the ideal place to combine romance and food. Sip wine among the vineyards of Montepulciano or walk along the beautiful beaches of the Monte Argentario peninsula.
Smaller more intimate towns on the coast try the Gulf of Poets, popular with romantic poets like Byron and Shelley.
On the Amalfi Coast is the picturesque town built vertically on the face of a cliff with stunning views.
Be charmed by the Serenissima City of Water with its hidden bridges, winding alleyways and picturesque piazzas.
The half-moon shaped seaside village with pastel houses, restaurants, and cafes lining the harbor and a romantic castle and a tiny church sit atop the hill overlooking the village .
According to legend, if you throw a coin into the Trevi fountain, you will return. If you toss two, enjoy a new romance. But if you are with your love, three coins to ensure marriage.
