According to the most official looking survey I could find (welovedates.com), Rome does not make the Top 25 Most Romantic Cities in the World. She’s been pipped to the post by smaller, more manageable cities like Florence and Venice, and is currently lagging somewhere behind Dublin.

Perhaps it’s because Rome is so hot and busy, and full of so many ancient artefacts that sheer visual fatigue makes it hard to look at anything at the end of the day, let alone your good-looking partner.

But, Rome can be romantic. Think of Audrey Hepburn and Cary Grant navigating their way through small back streets on a vespa. Think of Anita Ekberg frolicking about in the Trevi Fountain.

To prove it, I've provided a little guide to the best views in the Eternal City:

Mature drinkers might scoff at what was once a deeply unfashionable wine outside of Italy but Lambrusco has made somewhat of a comeback in the UK - served up on the menu of many a trendy pop-up Italian restaurant.

In Emilia-Romagna, the real Lambrusco is something to be revered. Crimson, frothy and slightly fizzy - it is one of Emila-Romagna’s greatest accolades. Usually plonked down on the table to accompany a hearty meal, or served as an aperativo, Lambrusco is the wine of choice in Emilia - Romagna.

If you want you happen to be in Modena, take a trip to Gavioli Cantina. You can read all about my trip below!

Decadent breakfast debauchery at its finest. A maritozzi con la panna is a sort of raisin studded breakfast bun (not dissimilar to a brioche), sliced in half and filled with enough whipped cream to warrant a pieface slapstick sketch.

What’s not to love?

Allegedly, the origins of the name derive from the word ‘marito’. Exact details of the history are hazy but one particular story tells that these pastries were prepared and sold by young women to attract a spouse.

Those with the best buns, get all the best huns, so to speak.

Heavy on the carbs. That’s the way to do Rome. You need the pasta really. How could you possibly whiz around all those sites on anything less than a carbohydrate rush?

Pasta in Rome is delightfully faff and fuss free. So simple, so delicious, so completely diet-destroying.

I've included five of the pasta dishes you NEED to try below in Rome. And yes. I included Carbonara. More on that in the link.
