This is an oldie but goodie. Audrey Hepburn stars as Princess Ann, a royal on a diplomatic tour of Europe. Feeling trapped by her responsibilities, she escapes her guardians and explores Rome alone. She meets an American journalist (played by Gregory Peck) who doesn’t recognize her and offers to show her around the city.

A timeless romantic comedy that showcases the joy of spontaneity, the beauty of exploring new experiences, and the transformative power of love.
