Italy is full of romantic gardens, cities, and beaches. These are some especially romantic locations for a proposal on a romantic walk, viewing cities or enjoying a glass of wine or champagne in a secluded spot for the perfect proposal.

5. Gardens of Villa d'Este

Located in Tivoli, near Rome, the Gardens of Villa d'Este are a UNESCO World Heritage site with stunning terraced gardens, fountains, and water features. It's a romantic and historic location for a proposal.

The Amalfi Coast is famous for its dramatic coastline and picturesque towns like Positano and Amalfi. A proposal on a clifftop terrace overlooking the Mediterranean Sea can be incredibly romantic.
