A bored and sheltered princess escapes her guardians and falls in love with an American newsman in Rome.
When Joe (Gregory Peck) is putting Princess Ann (Audrey Hepburn) in the cab, she says "It's a taxi!" and he says "It's not the Super Chief!" Joe was referring to a train and route of the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railroad. In the 1940s and 1950s, ATSF marketed it as "The Train of the Stars" because it supposedly carried celebrities on every passage between Chicago, Illinois, and Los Angeles, California. The SC was the first Diesel powered, full Pullman sleeping car train in the USA, setting the standard for American luxury train travel. Initially, with one set of equipment, it ran once in each direction each week between Chicago and Los Angeles. Later, after taking delivery or more engines and coaches, it ran twice in each direction each week, and finally daily after 1948.

The flower that Ann was given by the flower seller disappears when she is sitting by the clock tower.
