Heaven on Earth is a mismatched teen romance story -- stunning, artistic location shots of the well-known ancient Roman ruins and lesser known treasures of the Vatican provide the backdrop for an inconsequential, silly partnering of an American tourist and her Italian guide. Young Caroline (Barbara Florian) lands in Rome with her father, a G.I. who has memories of Italy from his soldiering past. Since she has a different agenda on their visit, Antonio (Gabriele Tinti), the son of dad's old friend Count Verbano, agrees to show her the city. Among the sites that would entertain anyone in their own right are the Sistine Chapel (before cleaning, of course), St. Peter's, the Catacombs, and it goes without say, those famous remains of the Forum and the Coliseum.
