Date Nights DC Itinerary: Amore and Italian Accents

  • PRINT

DO
Gaze upon the forever-youthful “Ginevra De’ Benci,” the only portrait by Leonardo da Vinci in the Western Hemisphere. Painted in 1474, she sits serenely in the National Gallery of Art’s West Wing.

EAT
Let the Italian (wine) roll off your tongue at Ghibellina. This 14th Street trattoria serves Florentine cuisine, such as pizzas served with scissors (you cut your own pie) and house made pastas. Cap off your meal with an affogato, gelato “drowned” in espresso.

DO
Jump on the Circulator and do Georgetown, Italian-style: A Mano sells hand-painted plates from Siena. Then, head to Dolcezza to share a cup of Sicilian blood orange gelato.

STAY
The tony Fairmont Washington, DC offers a variety of packages for engagements, weddings or downright romance. Let the hotel take care of the details while you focus on happily ever after.
