December is around the corner and many of us are planning getaways to different parts of the world. Apart from a gateway, this is an opportune season to pop the question.

Popping the question is nerve-wracking and a once-in-a-lifetime moment, so if you’re travelling to Italy, allow us to share some fabulous venues perfect for ‘proposal moments’:

1. On top of The Acqua Paola Fountain

Fontana dell’Acqua Paola also known as Il Fontanone (“The big fountain”) was designed and built to mark the terminus of the Trajan Aqueduct between 1610 and 1614, by architects Giovanni Fontana, laminio Ponzio and Ippolito Buzio. The fountain is located on the Janiculum Hill, near the church of San Pietro in Montorio, in Rome, Italy.

Tip: We recommend that you propose during sunset. This is for selfie purposes if your partner likes taking pictures. Trick him/ her by asking someone to take a picture of you together and while they prepare their killer pose, go on one knee and pop the question.

2. A picnic under the stars at il Giardino

The Giardino degli Aranci is estimated to be about 7,800 meters. The park inherited its name from its intense reds and orange during sunset that glows like fire. The park is located on the Aventine Hill providing an excellent view to the city

The park also has a magnificent background- the ancient Basilica of Santa Sabina church, and within it, you’ll find the Giacomo Della Porta’s fountain.

Tip: Play a trivia game together. When it is your partner’s turn say, “Your question is: Will you marry me?” rather than the question written on the card.

3. Porto Venere, Gulf of Poets, Liguria

Porto Venere is a town and comune located on the Ligurian coast of Italy in the province of La Spezia. It comprises the three villages of Fezzano, Le Grazie and Porto Venere, and the three islands of Palmaria, Tino and Tinetto.

Did you know? Porto Venere inspired award-winning writers such as Lord Byron and Percy Bysshe Shelley.

Tip: We suggest that you pop the question on the beautiful north-west coastline. Also, do it like the legends, and write a beautiful poem.

Tip: Buy a box of chocolates for your sweetheart and replace one chocolate with the ring.

5. Positano, Amalfi Coast

“It is a dream place that isn’t quite real,” John Steinbeck, the celebrated American author, reportedly said of Positano in the 1950s.

The Amalfi Coast offers sheer cliffs and stretches about 50-kilometer stretch of coastline along the southern edge of Italy’s Sorrentine Peninsula, in the Campania region. The road unwinds like a balcony along the cobalt-blue sea and the slopes of the Lattari Mountains.

6. Piazzale Michelangelo, Florence

“Piazzale Michelangelo” is situated on a hill on the southeast of Florence and is the most popular spot located on the south bank of the Arno River. As you climb up the hill the city never fails to capture the heart and imagination of those who follow the path to the very top.

7. Ancient Theatre, Taormina, Sicily

The Greek theatre of Taormina located in the Southern Italy, was initially created to accommodate dramatic and musical performances, dating back to the third century BCE the times of Hiero II. During Roman times, it was transformed for games and gladiatorial battles.

Tip: Get a street busker to sing “Will you marry me?” as you walk by. Ask, “Do you hear what he’s singing?” Then drop to one knee and pop the question.
