Tuscany needs no introduction of course, it is a region known for its beautiful vineyards, incredible panoramas, and medieval towns scattered through the countryside. Its feudal history is one of the reasons for the abundance of Medieval and Renaissance castles as well as the outstanding selection of ancient villas and hamlets that make Tuscany a dream wedding destination. In this region was one of the greatest concentrations of wealth, art and architecture at a time when families vied with each other on who could build the biggest and most stunning edifice to display their wealth and power.
Nestled in the Chianti hills are a variety of fine Tuscan wedding ceremony and reception castles and fortresses complete with turrets, stone towers and huge parks. Your evening wedding reception will be magically lit by torches and candles while guests mingle in the gardens enjoying cocktails and music. Feast on a multi-course banquet and fine wines prepared by great chefs.
If you choose to marry in Florence, the area surrounding the city is renown for its elegant villas, a number of which enjoy astonishing views of the city. Some include fully furnished apartments for your friends and family who may wish to linger and explore the region further.
Tuscany offers an extraordinary selection of villa and castle wedding halls for a civil ceremony as well. Most are decorated with colourful frescoes and original interiors dating back to the 12th century or the Renaissance. Some of our favorites are the Sala Rossa of Florence, the extraordinary Palazzo Pubblico of Siena and the smaller but equally beautiful wedding halls of Pienza and Arezzo.
