Hi all.

I'm thinking of do a love trip to Italy with my love. And I can't get my head around to do what I should do.
The date I have posted as leave-date is February 6th(My 23 birthday) and home-date is February 10th. I need some ideas and recomendations of that we can do, (yeah yeah, some of you will most likley say: Love+Italy=Hotel room. But something eles must be done?)


So any love travel to Italy experts amongst us?

Spend some effort on picking your restaurants (in advance).
Gianicolo is a hill a little outside of Rome, providing a nice view over the city.
Walk along river Tiber.
Spend (half) an evening at the Spanish Steps.

February is a bit early though.

I live very close to Italy. I know the country rather well.

All depends of course on how much time you want to spend there. Italy is a big country with a lot of wonderful places for lovers and otherst too.
It is very easy to find information about Rome.
I will suggest some other places.

The first place I can think of is Verona, the city of Romeo and Juliet.

Then Venice with the gondolas and canals. Gondolas are an ideal way to see Venice.
Just leave it to your gondoliere to show you around the waterways - night time is very mysterious
you can see all the palazzi lights and have a glimpse on some of the fabulous interiors

When do you recommend is a good time to visit? I wish a time when there is not to much tourist and not too cold.

Well, about 7-10 days max.

Well depends what you find as too cold. Febuary it can get cold in Italy. 5-10c. I was there in April and it was cool and raining. There is a lot to do in Rome. Spanish steps is a must. Take a day and just walk around, get lost a little. Its a great city with so many sites to see. I like the suggestion in pick a restaurant or two ahead of time.

I'd recommend April (but avoid the Easter holiday accurately, which will be on April 24th) or September. Not to cold, not too hot, and not too many tourists. February can really be freezing!

I can't really comment on what to do. I live 30 minutes by car from Italy but I've never really played tourist there, except going to the beach. But the comments so far look great!

Agreed. I was there in May, October and December. (Late) April seems to be a good time: not too touristy nor hot, but greener than in February and less scorched than in fall.

I've been there several times, as all of Italy the summer months are unbearable especially for tourism, except if you're the kind to live at night and sleep all day (preferably with aircon).

February on the other hand can be cold, but that doesn't mean it's a big problem, at least for the cold you can adapt with clothing !

In Rome the historic center can't be avoided, the coliseum, the agora. Even if you're not a Catholic I would recommend St Peter and the Vatican.

You better bring LOTS of money for getting pick-pocketed if you're going to spend half-an-evening there!

I have been there in December, January and February...all were fine weather. Not hot and sweaty, but who likes that on a non-beach vacation? Plus, the crowds are definitely less. A nice time to visit, in my book.

A whole day can be dedicated to the Vatican, between the religious sites and the museum. It's my absolute favorite place to go in "Italy" (though, that being said, I have never been fond of Italy...at least Rome)
