To Rome With Love
Woody Allen's new film 'To Rome With Love' has just been released and is about a number of people in Italy, the predicaments they get into as well as showcasing the romance and beauty of the Eternal City. In this Weekend's Sunday Telegraph Lee Marshall wrote an enlightening article inspired by the film about the city that added some interesting facts and a splash of his own knowledge about some of its many hidden romantic locations.
"Allen knows that you can point a camera pretty much anywhere in the centro storico, or historic centre and it will look like a film set that a team of carpenters and painters has spent weeks assembling. In other words, it's the whole city that exudes character, charm and widescreen romance.' said Marshall and it's a sentiment I wholeheartedly agree with having visited earlier this year. Rome is a city that enchants; it's a city you can return to time and time again and always discover something exciting, intriguing and new to captivate. To add to Lee Marshalls 'Hidden Romantic Spots' I would suggest a stroll though Villa Borghese, the largest public park in Rome. It features a lake, temples, fountains, statues and several museums. Of course when in Rome a 'must' see are its other many main attractions The Colosseum, the Pantheon and Vatican City but be sure to throw your three coins into the Trevi Fountain be to ensure a return visit to Rome.
