My romantic adventure in Rome


A paradise on earth, filled with many destinations to visit, Rome is the center of scenic beauty and the pathway to discover the Italian way of life. Visiting Rome has always been number 1 on my bucket list for ages. The place compromises of a beautiful scenery and exotic places that can tantalize the dreams of any tourist. Unfortunately I had to postpone my trip to Rome a couple of times due to my wedding plans. I met my husband 5 years ago and from that moment on, I knew he was my soul-mate. We got married 3 years ago and he surprised me with the greatest gift of all: a honeymoon trip to Rome. I was so excited, it seemed as if he read my deep thoughts and desires. We prepared our luggage and tour books then we set off to the capital city of Italy.

Pastine International Airport and faced the warm greeting of the staff who also offered us a complimentary card, and greeting “Benvenuti a Roma, Italia”(Welcome to Rome, Italy). We then headed to one of the luxury hotels Rome has to offer. A 5-Star earthly Elysium called Grand Hotel de la Minerve. The hotel consists of grand historical significance and world class service. Me and my husband got settled in the Superior Deluxe Room.  Then we were off, My husband prepared a romantic dinner for me at the breathtaking Minerva Roof Garden. We both enjoyed a delicious meal and ended up cozying up while watching the stars in the night sky. The following day, we woke up, had lovely breakfast and headed to a romantic adventure in Rome. We started at Trevi Fountain. The place was crowded however the friendly attitude we received from the locals calmed our anxiety down. We were absolutely touched by their sincerity. My husband looked at me and said “This place is majestic but your beauty surpasses its perfection.” My heart melted on the spot. Then, he held me on his arms and swung me around like a princess.  After that we went to St Peter’s Basilica and we all prayed in silence for a few minutes before touring the place. We are Christians and it would have been a terrible mistake if we missed the Basilica. Next, we went to the Colosseum. The place where blood, gore and extreme violence entertained ancient Romans. Some Gladiators rose to stardom and earned their freedom whilst others met a brutal end at this amazing place of history.

The day was dwindling away and the night was setting in. My husband whispered to my ear as we exited La Pizzetteria. He said he had a surprise for me. Then we journeyed to Fori Imperiali. We stood there for a couple of minutes as the lights went on. My husband went down on one knee. He opened up a ring box and said “I know we are already married however I want you to have this ring. My grandmother gave it to me, and said I should give it to the lucky lady I will spend the rest of my life with, I believe that lady is you.” I was very emotional after hearing those words. Tears of joy flooded my face and I couldn’t contain my emotions. It was the best night ever. It was the best honeymoon I could ever ask for.

The beauty of Rome is one of a kind. The historical beauty and romantic scenery complement Rome’s eye-catching atmosphere. It is the utopia of love and Roman culture. I would go there again in a heartbeat. I suggest you visit Rome once in your life. I swear you will not regret it.
