How lucky we are! Rome has come first in The Times’ list of the world’s 12 sexiest cities. The criteria of the list are somewhat obscure, but it can be concluded that the sexiness of a city appears to be based on something more intricate than its red-light district, as the most famous cities in that respect – Amsterdam, Bangkok, anyone? – are completely absent in The Times’ list.

An intimate moment in Rome

So, what made the difference for Rome? According to the Times, it is “frothing fountains, cobbled piazzas and enough energy to launch a rocket”, that put Rome “up there among Europe‚Äôs raunchiest cities.”

Well, I might have put it a bit differently. But I will not deny that the Eternal City has a special “something” rather conducive to romance! I think that its monumental beauty, combined with the infectious liveliness of its disarmingly handsome inhabitants, might be contributing to the unique atmosphere. What is your guess?
