The Eternal City of Rome stands gracefully at the central-western part of the Italian peninsula, seducing thousands of couples and newlyweds every year. Its picturesque alleys have seen many break-ups and new loves being born. The hidden cafes around the city have hosted many forbidden – and not only lovers and couples. Romance and Rome are deeply connected.
Rome is an all-year-round destination, so you can schedule your romantic holidays/honeymoon whenever you want. The best season to visit is Spring (April-May) and Autumn (September-November). These months enjoy plenty hours of daily sunshine, and the temperatures are ideal for many romantic activities.
Nevertheless, no matter how ideal the weather might be, your romantic experience in Rome will not be complete if you don’t choose the right accommodation. Picking a hotel in the city’s center is essential since it will save you much effort and time. Its central location is one of the reasons why we picked CasaCau Apartments near Fontana di Trevi.
