Rome is probably the best place in the world for a proposal. You’ll find that there are just so many ways that you can make the event extra special. Stroll around the Coliseum absorbing the history and heartache, view the holy beauty of the Vatican or woo your loved one with fine cuisine. If you want the perfect Rome proposal though you can’t get better than the Trevi Fountain.
The best time to visit the fountain is during the evening when all the other tourists have been and gone. Who knows you might even have Rome’s largest fountain all to yourself. Tradition has it that if you throw a coin in the fountain you’ll return to the city in years to come. Therefore, it’s a good idea to have a small amount of spare change on you. Once you’ve both thrown your coins in the fountain, casually mention that the next time you return may very well be for your wedding anniversary. Just make sure that you don’t accidentally throw the ring in the fountain instead.
