Exclusive Sunrise-to-Sunset Valentine’s Day Package Available from Sofitel Rome Villa Borghese

Romantic Getaway Offers Luxe Accommodations, Sunrise Hot-Air Balloon Ride Over Italian Vineyards, Guided Nighttime E-Bike Tour of Rome, and Romantic Rooftop Dining

This Valentine’s Day, Sofitel Rome Villa Borghese is offering a Romantic Getaway of unparalleled sunrise-to-sunset experiences. A complement to five-star accommodations in the heart of the Eternal City, a morning hot-air balloon ride, sunset e-bike tour, and romantic tasting menu at the rooftop restaurant Settimo complete the offering. 

The adventure begins at dawn with a private hot-air balloon ride over the lush vineyards of Magliano in Sabina, a region known for its rolling landscapes, historic towns, and thriving viticulture. At sunrise, the picturesque region will still be half-asleep, allowing the couple to enjoy the captivating aerial views in total tranquility. After returning from the skies, the couple is invited to relax and savor the peaceful ambiance of the hotel before embarking on a sunset e-bike tour of Rome. After capturing memories at the nearby Circus Maximus, the tour ascends to the Orange Garden for breathtaking sunset views over the city. The journey includes iconic stops at the Pantheon and the magical Trevi Fountain, where tossing a coin promises travelers a future return to Rome. As night descends, the tour weaves through the elegant Piazza di Spagna and Piazza del Popolo, perfect for that must-have selfie. Guided along safer, secondary roads, couples can comfortably soak in the nocturnal charm of Rome under the expert guidance of their local guide.

Later that evening, the couple will head to Settimo, the hotel’s rooftop restaurant offering panoramic views of Rome for a romantic Valentine’s tasting menu. The dinner begins with champagne and Fine de Claire oysters, followed by a spicy passion fruit tuna tartare, marine fish ballotin with Osetra caviar, and homemade tonnarelli pasta with blue lobster. The main course offers a choice between golden mullet stuffed with smoked provolone or beef filet with foie-gras and truffle sauce. The meal concludes with a decadent “Amore e Psyche” valrhona chocolate pie, accompanied by a box of chocolates and a red rose.
