Discover beautiful venues for the perfect Italian wedding
The rolling hills, medieval hilltop villages and endless vineyards of Tuscany have made it one of Italy’s most popular regions, whether you love art and history, picturesque scenery, great wines or the beaches lining the coastline.
So couples looking for a destination wedding in Italy will have endless reasons to choose a wedding abroad in Tuscany: the only decision is what style of ceremony you want.
For city chic, Florence mixes stunning architecture and the beautiful river Arno with some of the world’s greatest artistic masterpieces, while civil ceremonies can be held in one of its grandest palazzos.
For another historic spot, Siena’s ancient streets have been declared a Unesco World Heritage site in their own right or choose a more intimate setting at one of Tuscany’s famous hilltop villages, their medieval buildings so well preserved, you’ll feel like you’re stepping back in time. Marry under the towers and turrets of San Gimignano and Cortona or in the medieval palace of Montepulciano.
Away from the cities and towns, Tuscany’s farmhouses are equally enticing with their olive groves and endless rows of vines, growing the sangiovese grapes used in the area’s unmatchable wines. With outdoor venues, you can say ‘I do’ while gazing out onto the hills, along with the castles you’ll find nestled in the Chianti hills.
And while beach weddings are rare in Italy, as most civil ceremonies take place in town halls or other licensed venues, Tuscany is one of the few regions where they’re permitted in some places – imagine standing barefoot on the sand, exchanging your vows as the sun sets over the sea.
