Putting a Lock on It at the Ponte Milvio in Rome, Italy
Ponte Milvio is known for its history, popular culture references, and thousands of locks. Built by Nero in 206 BC, the bridge has many claims to fame in ancient history, including being the location of the interception of the Catiline conspiracy letters. Since its feature in Federico Moccia's book, I Want You (Ho voglia di te), Ponte Milvio has been a famous meeting spot for Roman couples, who attach padlocks to the steel columns and toss the keys into the Tiber. If you find yourself on the outskirts of the city center (near the Olympic Stadium), a visit to the bridge and one of the many bars and restaurants nearby will make a great evening.
