    Appia Antica

    Appia Antica
    Credits - Fabiana
    If you want to get out of the hustle and bustle of the centre, pack a picnic for two and hit the (2000-year old) road. That is, take your partner on a biking tour of the ancient Appia Antica, the very first road that led to Rome. The 16km stretch of cobbled stones is surrounded by beautiful greenery, and takes you past ancient ruins, villas, catacombs, the Caffarella Valley and the remains of Roman aqueducts. A good place to start your journey is just past Porta di San Sebastiano, where you can also hire bikes.

    Information Point & Bike Hire Address: Via Appia Antica, 58

    Opening times: Mon – Sat 9.30am – 1pm & 2pm – 5.30pm, Sun 9.30am – 5.30 pm

    Spanish Steps and The Keats and Shelley House

    Spanish Steps
    Credits - Paolo Margari
    Another must-see attraction often dotted with canoodling couples is the Spanish Steps. Located in the famous and picturesque Piazza di Spagna, it offers a spot to sit down and share a gelato – or climb to the top and gaze across the rooftops of the historic centre. If you feel overwhelmed by the crowds, take refuge in The Keats and Shelley House, just a stone's throw away. This quaint little museum is dedicated to the English Romantic poets who fell in love with Roma.

    Address: Keats and Shelley House: Piazza di Spagna, 26

    Opening times: Mon – Sat 10am – 1pm & 2pm – 6pm, Closed Sun
