A Babymoon is a romantic retreat for you and your partner to take one last time before the baby arrives and your life becomes truly something different. This is the time to relax, enjoy and indulge in some quality time with your partner before your new arrival. Ensure that your trip will be everything that really makes you happy by having enough time to relax, bonding with your partner doing by the things you like and just ticking off whatever may be on your extra special wishlist.
Travelling while pregnant can put certain strains and requirements on your trip and choosing the perfect babymoon destination is of crucial importance. Which is why Rome might just be the ideal place for such a fabulous trip. Whether you are all about an active journey of cultural exploration, indulging in fantastic food or a series of laid-back experiences- pack your bags and book your flight cause Rome has it all!
You want to get out and explore, immerse yourself in the wonders of Roman culture and food and experience all the perfect ways in which Romans relax? We have some inspiration for you to experience a trip with memories that will stick with you and your family forever! Fall in Rome is probably the best (and spring of course!) time of the year to enjoy the city with leisurely strolls and delicious gelato or to sightsee the surreal and unbelievable cultural places. The fall temperatures make it incredibly easy to love and explore Rome.
You will need your most comfortable shoes to embark on a journey of ancient Rome and you will love it. With a private tour guide, you will be able to avoid the crowd and marvel at the beauty of the Colosseum and the Vatican City or see the Sistine Chapel after hours in its full glory and tranquillity. Daily walks are very important during pregnancy, but make sure to listen to your body and by all means embrace the Italian lifestyle. And when in Rome the in-between periods of active explorations require hearty food and some down time to relax and savour the atmosphere of the Eternal city. The fame of Rome’s cuisine can be literally found all around the city and it is not only reserved for fancy restaurants, although there are many that you should definitely try. But more on that later. Corners of streets are brimming with mouth-watering street food such as pizzas and paninis but there are also healthy options to be found on the streets and as just as yummy. Make sure you make several lengthy breaks to relax and soak up the time between you and your partner and sneak in some romance.
Aside from keeping an eye on all the historical and cultural spectacle, something quite unique to Rome and probably much soothing to you are the numerous parks and villa gardens throughout the city. It is rather difficult to make a definite selection because they are all so beautiful, but luckily they are scattered around well enough for you to be able to find one close to you once you feel the need to slip into some fall magic. Here are some of our picks to get your imagination started on just how beautiful a romantic secluded spot can get. As your life will soon be dedicated to taking care of someone else, now is the time to indulge in some pampering. As the city gets a little be overwhelming why not refuel with a luxury spa treatment to invigorate your body and mind. A sanctuary awaits you at Regina Hotel Baglioni, where the two of you can give in to a fabulous couples massage from an impressive list offered at their SPA centre. And why not add the Maternity Ritual treatment and splurge yourself with this combination of pressure point massage, deep scalp and Ayurvedic massage. Don’t forget, taking every possible moment for indulging self-care is a must while on a babymoon.
It may be that visiting the countryside of Rome during the fall is a key element to connecting with your partner and nature, especially when it includes the unforgettable experience of truffle hunting or olive harvesting. A really exciting fall experience is an olive harvest in the inexplicably beautiful countryside just outside of Rome. Spending a crisp fall day out in the olive groves caters to all of your senses with lush landscapes, olive oil tasting, lunch and even a cooking lesson. With this perfect setting, you can rest assured to have a day of tranquillity and romance. And take a lot of photos! On the other hand, truffle hunting will take you on a journey through the magnificent woods on the outskirts of Rome allowing you to enjoy the finding and afterwards tasting one of the most cherished ingredients of Italian cuisine.
There are numerous ways to experience the excellence of the Roman food, from a tasty brunch to a gourmet lunch or dinner, treating yourself at a gourmet restaurant.
