THAT’S AMORE: CELEBRATE VALENTINE’S DAY IN FLORENCE
AND ROME WITH ROCCO FORTE HOTELS, ITALY

10/01/2020



On the occasion of Valentine’s Day, the Rocco Forte hotels in Florence and Rome will sweep lovers off their feet during the month of February. With their epoch-defining history, unparalleled artistic treasures, sublime food, and impossibly picturesque streets, the two Italian cities offer the ideal setting for a romantic getaway to discover the true meaning of amore.

Stay for two or more nights at Hotel Savoy, Rocco Forte’s Florentine address, and explore the city’s Renaissance past, which evokes romance at every turn. From walking along the Arno River while the sun bathes the Ponte Vecchio in gold to climbing up the Arnolfo Tower to soak in breath-taking views, special memories await in Florence. Bring a flower to the tiny church of Santa Margherita dei Cerchi in honour of Dante Alighieri’s love story with his muse, Beatrice, or take a stroll inside Villa Bardini through ancient sculptures and green walkways – a must for every hopeless romantic. After filling your heart, fill your soul with a delectable 5-course dinner at Hotel Savoy’s Irene Bistro and a special drink called ‘Secret’ at the restaurant’s bar: a pink and black cocktail symbolizing how opposites do attract.

In Roman Holiday, Gregory Peck and Audrey Hepburn fell in love while scooting around Rome on a Vespa. Depart from Hotel de la Ville, Rocco Forte’s newest addition in the Eternal City, and follow in the footsteps of these iconic lovers by holding hands on the Spanish Steps and drinking from the lover’s fountain at Trevi Fountain. According to the myth, when couples drink from this small basin they remain in love forever. Leave the crowds behind and head to the city’s tallest viewpoint called Zodiaco or, fittingly, Vialetto degli Innamorati (Lovers’ Walkway) to marvel at the Eternal City’s mesmerising beauty. Back at Hotel de la Ville, drift in ultimate relaxation during a couple’s massage in the peaceful and serene environment of the De La Ville Spa. From the spa’s Sicilian aromas, indulge in the Italian and Middle Eastern flavours at Mosaico restaurant where a candle-lit dinner will warm your heart.

February is the season of love but also of artichokes, which, supposedly, have aphrodisiac powers. Go on an artichoke tasting tour starting from the Testaccio’s food market and ending in the Jewish Ghetto where carciofi alla giudea are a speciality. Venture to Gianicolo where Caesar and Cleopatra, possibly the most famous couple in Roman history, lived together and admire the unbeatable panorama. From the Hotel de Russie, Rome’s most iconic hotel, the evergreen Villa Borghese park is just a stone’s throw away and counts as one of the city’s most romantic spots. Rent a rowing boat and swing together with the gentle waves whilst appreciating the architectural and natural wonders. You will find another urban retreat within the hotel’s De Russie Spa: unwind whilst a highly qualified team of therapists pampers you before ending your day at Le Jardin de Russie restaurant for an unforgettable dining experience.
Romance awaits in Italy!
