Marriage Proposal

Hi there,

I am planning to propose to my girlfriend in Catania next month while we're there on holiday for a few days.

Does anyone know of any romantic/ideal locations that aren't too busy that would be best when popping the question? I'm hoping I can make the moment feel as natural as possible so some help steering me in the right direction would be highly appreciated!

Thanks in advance.

(P.S - i'm posting as a new user so I'm not outed with my regular TripAdvisor account!)

Congrats guest196!

Perhaps Piazza del Duomo, La Pescheria (gritty and colourful!), or Orto Botanico.

Are you taking any day trips??

If visiting Taormina (as I'm sure you must be), how about the Roman Theatre there?

Thank you for the suggestions guys, will do some extra research on all of those to see what will possibly be best suited!

I did have the Roman Theatre in mind actually. As far as day trips are concerned we were planning to do one of the Mt Etna morning trips and maybe squeeze in a trip to Syracuse if we have enough time on another day.

Any other suggestions are still welcome, thanks again for your help : )

Prego guest196,

These are surely some beautiful places, and also top and memorable destinations, so perhaps decide when the time is right!

Did you do it? I took some photos of someone at Ortigia popping the question a week or so ago...

I'd suggest acicastello at the top of the castle at sunset. Think the name of the town is right. Will double check and confirm.
