[ClickPress, Thu Aug 27 2009] People have long been lusting over la dolce vita and Italy has successfully cultivated an image of beautiful people engaged in romantic trysts set against a backdrop of stunning country – so it’s fitting that the rolling, passionate accents of the Italians have come out top in a new survey to find the most romantic language in the world…

A recent survey from tripadvisor.it asked French, Spanish and English travellers which language they considered to be the most romantic.

There is a certain quality possessed by the Italian language that makes it sound incredibly expressive and the rolling r’s and sensual sounds of Italy helped it to win the title, with 31 per cent of French, 15 per cent of Spaniards and 23 per cent of British travellers saying that Italian is the most romantic accent in the world.

French took second place whilst the bronze medal went to Spain.

The rich culture of Italy has brought about a subconscious association of anything romantic with the Italian language.

Italy’s culture is loaded with passion, from the honeymooners kissing in a gondola in Venice, to escaping from it all in a villa in Tuscany, to strolling through ancient cobbled streets in Florence.

The music, architecture and art created in Italy also adds to the romantic identity of the country.

The soft sounds of Italian, French and Spanish came out far higher than the hard sounds of other languages such as German.

When it came to choosing the cities that most inspired a romantic affair, the city of Rome won with 18 per cent of the total vote, followed by Venice is second with 10 per cent and then Florence with nine per cent.
