Happy Valentine’s Day!
Of course we know today is not Feb 14 yet! But if you wish to make a special gift to your special one…this is the time to start planning.
In fact a romantic trip is always an unforgettable present and Rome is a sensual city of “Roma-nce”!
Did you know you can read “Roma” the other way around and you’ll get “amor”? We believe this is not just a silly coincidence… As an article of UK Telegraph was stating some years ago… “Rome makes you want to hold hands, whether it’s skipping together down the Spanish Steps or sauntering through the Borghese Gardens.”
A cozy B&B or a deluxe hotel, a perfect meal (we can reserve a nice table for you in a good restaurant or arrange a dinner just for you two in a special location), a Vespa tour or just gallivanting around with no destination, a drink at sunset on a roof-top bar, a pampering SPA treatment …these are just some ideas to spend a few days in Rome and celebrate your love story!
A Friend in Rome offers a dedicated “Romantic Rome” tour if you prefer to be guided across the city and visit some of the famous sites next to some lovers’ corners. For example, did you know St. Valentine himself is buried in Rome? Swearing eternal love over his tomb would be an unforgettable way to celebrate the day or to propose to your partner!
In this tour your guide will be a discrete chaperon leading your way, telling the history and anecdotes about the sites and introducing you to local love rituals, but he/she will also leave you alone from time to time, so you two will be free to sip a coffee or a drink and exchange some intimate feelings and kisses.
Moreover, on February 14 every monument and museum offer a special discount to couples, the “pay 1, get 2 tickets”!
Well…haven’t you booked a flight for two yet???
Lovers of the past…this Etruscan couple is together since the VI century BC!
(and now they hang around in the beautiful museum of Villa Giulia)
Lovers today…a ritual you will learn about:
closing a padlock and throwing the key into the Tiber from the Milvian Bridge…
