Rome, Cinematic Superstar

Were you in Rome last summer? We hope so, but at least three people who we sort of  know, in a let’s-trade-places-for-a-day kind of way, were Penelope Cruz, Alec Baldwin and Woody Allen. Movie-making legend Allen took to the Eternal City with a bevy of famous actors to shoot To Rome with Love, his latest love song to a great European city (following on the heels of Vicky Cristina Barcelona and Midnight in Paris). After much anticipation, the trailer of the film has finally been released and one thing is certain…okay, two things: 1) Penelope Cruz is as much a babe as ever, and 2) the real star of the romantic comedy, structured as a series of vignettes, is going to be the great city of Rome itself.

In the brief clip we spotted the Colosseum, the Monumento Nazionale at Vittorio Emanuele II, and the Piazza del Campidoglio. There is also an amazing rooftop view of Rome from a mystery luxury hotel, and a perhaps obligatory passing reference to espresso.

But what did we miss? Name each spot that makes an appearance in the To Rome with Love preview leaving a comment in the section below or on our Facebook Page. Among all of those that will correctly list all of them Select Italy will randomly pick one lucky winner that will be announced on this blog on April 20th and will receive a gift from our online store …and we promise you’re going to love it!.

The movie opens in theaters on April 20 in Italy (US release scheduled for June 22nd) – but it’s never too soon to start planning your next trip to Rome…and we promise you’re going to love it!
