A young librarian at an all girl school appropriately named Prudence (Susan Pleshette) is reprimanded for recommending a racy, controversial book about love. She decides to head for Italy, the romance capital of the world. There she meets Roberto (Rossano Brazzi), who is more than willing to be her tender hearted tour guide. She meets Don (Troy Donahue) an art student with a pompadour and a motorcycle. Don has eyes for dear Prudence, but must get rid of his old girlfriend Lyda (Angie Dickinson). All the action takes place on a colorful tour throughout Italy.

Sluggish romantic melodrama.

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

Set in picaresque Rome, this prepsoterously plotted romantic melodrama features heartthrob Troy Donahue (Summer Place, Parrish) at the height of his stardom with teenage viewers.

Audience Reviews for Rome Adventure

It may be adorable in its first hour with that lovely song and those beautiful locations, but this corny melodrama soon shows us why it is so ridiculously outdated now with its wholesome, moralizing view of love, sex and old-fashioned chivalry (an ugly euphemism for sexism).

Simple predictable story, but I enjoyed seeing all the sights of Rome again. I don't know if I would have watched it save for the fact we just spent some time in Rome.

Gorgeous locations and unbelievable hair lend interest to this soap opera. Everyone is incredibly young and beautiful. Suzanne is as usual the best thing in the film.
