Top 10 attractions for couples in Rome

Rome, the “Eternal City” is definitely one of the most romantic places on earth and it is a very recommended destination for your vacation together. Here is a list of the top 10 attractions for couples in Rome:

1. Colosseum
One of the new 7 wonders of the world is a true wonder and it is one of the most visited tourist attractions in the world. The Colosseum was built to provide the mob some free entertainment. There is nothing romantic about the entertainment presented at the arena where gladiators fought to death. However, nowadays the Colosseum is a great place to visit while in Rome. Try to book a hotel or order a place in a restaurant with the view of the Colosseum. The lighted stadium is a wonderful background for a great meal or as a window view.
