Indeed, the most romantic destinations today is without doubt Rome not only for its beautiful and ancient architecture that makes any romantic stroll down the streets of the city with your partner truly romantic, but also its history.
The evolution of Valentine's Day is a debated and long discussion and February 14 had always had a special relationship with love in ancient Rome.
Valentine's Day originates from this beautiful city about 18 centuries ago. According to some tradition St. Valentine was a priest who defied Emperor Claudius and was imprisoned by the wrathful ruler as punishment. While he was in prison, he was often visited by the jailer's daughter and when he was finally executed on February 14th 269 A.D., he left a note to the girl, signing it 'Love your Valentine'. And so the Valentine's card was born!
