The USA does not lack amazing places for fairy tale weddings, that is certain. But there is something so special about travelling abroad to Europe for a destination wedding, and in particular, the most romantic country of all: Italy. Italy has beautiful lakes, coastlines, cities, countryside and vineyards that are perfect for unforgettable weddings, but our favourite region is, by far, Tuscany.
Tuscany’s capital city is Florence, an enchanting place that is also home to world renowned Renaissance art and architecture, such as Michelangelo’s “David” statue, Botticelli’s works, and the Duomo basilica. A simple stroll in the streets, hand in hand with your loved one, will take you on a romantic journey through years of culture and charm built into one city. In Florence you will find a plethora of boutique hotels for an intimate city wedding, one that oozes glamour, elegance and authenticity. The iconic leaning tower of Pisa is also a main attraction of Tuscany, situated in the Romanesque city of Pisa.
The region of Tuscany is a diverse natural landscape since it encompasses rugged mountains, the beaches of the Tyrrhenian Sea and the olive groves and vineyards of Chianti. This means you will not be stuck for an absolutely beautiful view as the back drop to your alfresco vows.
Something that attracts so many destination wedding couples to the region of Tuscany is that it is considered the wine region of Italy. So, if you are a couple that appreciates great taste, then you can wow your guests with both the views and the delicious wines. There is the infamous Chianti, and other immersive winery experiences such as Brunello di Montalcino, Nobile di Montepulciano, Vernaccia di san Gimignano, and Carmignano.
