The Villa Borghese is Rome’s largest park, where couples can take boat rides around the lake, before making their way to the popular terrace at the Caffe delle Arti for a light lunch.
Near the Vatican is the Castel Sant’Angelo on the banks of the River Tibor. Here, you can visit the private apartments of the 16th-century Pope Paul II that contain depictions of Cupid and Psyche.It’s also the setting for Puccini’s opera in which the central heroine Floria Tosca throws herself from the castle’s parapets in overwhelming grief after learning of her lover’s death.
Eating in Rome
There’s no denying that Rome is a gastronomic paradise. You can enjoy fine dining with world-famous chefs or opt for a taste of traditional Italy in a family-run trattoria. Favourite local dishes include sumptuously fresh meat, fish and vegetables, often served up with pasta.
For a unique experience, dine in the Palazzo del Rovere, which is housed in an ornate building dating back to 1480. The restaurant’s speciality is mouth-watering steak with vegetables and herbs.
