· Piazza Venezia
As the movie opens, an American tourist, Hayley, meets an Italian lawyer, Michelangelo, at Piazza Venezia while looking for the Trevi fountain and, yes, they predictably fall in love. The square's centerpiece is the Victor Emmanuel II monument which is often called the “wedding cake” or “Mussolini’s typewriter” due to its striking size and shape.
· La Garbatella
To Rome With Love hasn't been well-received by Italians, maybe it's because Allen's given away some of their best kept secrets. Rome's La Garbatella neighborhood is one of those secrets that, until now, was completely off most tourist radar. Garbatella is easy to get to by metro, but do arrive hungry as you'll definitely want to try one of the neighborhood's restaurants, like Dar Moschino.
· Spanish Steps
"This city is really special," Hayley says as she looks over Rome's famous Spanish Steps in the movie. "I could stand here all night, it's too beautiful." Rome's Piazza di Spagna is connected to Trinità dei Monti on the hill above by Europe's widest staircase, the Scalinata della Trinità dei Monti, colloquially known to foreigners as the Spanish Steps. And sure, the Spanish Steps are touristy, but they've also been a muse for artists and musicians for centuries, so why shouldn't you be inspired too?
