Top 5 most romantic places for a marriage proposal in Italy

Summer is quickly approaching, and perhaps all your thoughts are around planning a perfect marriage proposal? Italy is one of the most requested destinations for a romantic proposal as it offers endless spots where to pop the question and make this day magical.

Here are my Top 5 locations that you may consider for that special day. Rome, Florence, Positano, Portofino, and Lake Como. Yes, you’re right! They all are not just the most popular cities in Italy but also frequented by many tourists. Check out these spots that make a big difference and consider your proposal in Italy.


Colosseum in Rome

I know many of you think that Trevi Fountain is the best spot in Rome to get down on one knee. But how many of you know that the Fountain is overcrowded by tourists at any time of the day? If your partner is a shy person, choose a place that’s more intimate and where she can feel more comfortable and you more relaxed. My suggestion is to book a private terrace overlooking Colosseum with a breathtaking view. Make sure to surprise her gradually. You will definitely satisfy her expectations as soon as she gets on the terrace.


Bardini Gardens

Piazzale Michelangelo in Florence is absolutely gorgeous because of the city’s panorama but not the most useful if you want to surprise your partner with something unique. My suggestion goes for Bardini Gardens. It has almost the same view as Piazzale Michelangelo, plus it can be booked privately just for you, which makes this place totally perfect for a dreamy proposal. The best period for the engagement is spring when the wisteria is in full bloom. Imagine how magical the atmosphere is under the tunnel with these beautiful flowers and that gorgeous view over Florence.


5 most romantic places in Italy that are affordable
Positano beach

Positano, one of the jewels of the Amalfi Coast, is highly frequented by tourists in the summer season. Thus, how to plan the proposal and make it epic? Most of the couples wish to propose on the beach so that the photographer can capture that significant moment with the breathtaking view of the colorful houses in the background. My advice is to book a private terrace or a reserved area on the beach (at a specific moment) to surprise your partner with a romantic setting. If your partner doesn’t mind a little bit of audience while you are popping the question, then the beach is an ideal spot.


Portofino proposal

Portofino is one of the most exclusive places in Italy, a favorite for rich and famous people, especially during its 1950s. Today, it’s still popular and visited by famous people coming here with luxury yachts and doing shopping in outlets such as Gucci, Louis Vuitton, etc. It has its magic because it’s very intimate. The prettiest place for a dreamy proposal is definitely Castello Brown, with its stunning view over the harbor and crystal green waters. The terrace of the Castle can be booked privately, and with a slight touch of a romantic setting, you will for sure impress your partner and leave her speechless.


Lake Como proposal

Choosing Lake Como for a destination proposal is always a great idea if you look for a unique scenario, elegant architecture, and a romantic atmosphere. These three ingredients guarantee a successful result of your proposal planning. There are endless spots in Lake Come where you can surprise your loved one. You can book a boat and propose in front of the Civera bridge, book a romantic candlelight dinner overlooking the lake, propose privately in the famous loggia of the Villa Balbianello, or make it more intimate and drop down on one knee under the gazebo in a beautiful villa.

As you see, there goes so much for a successful marriage proposal. So, if you are unsure, let’s get in touch, and I will plan your proposal in Italy into the smallest perfect details. Then you will see, why they call me a proposal expert. Here is my contact.
