WED ATOP A TERRACE IN SIENA
Siena is simply stunning – boasting such historic sites as the 13th-century Duomo and the almost 300-foot-tall Torre del Mangia. But, one of the the best views in town isn’t found in a guidebook. It’s from our Italian friend’s private rooftop terrace – overlooking Siena’s extraordinary Piazza del Campo and the city’s terracotta roofs. Imagine toasting your nuptials in Siena with a glass of local Vernaccia wine here – glimpsing vineyards in the distance. What's more, there are no other tourists sight. Just you, your sweetheart and your dearest loved ones.
VOWS AT A TUSCAN VINEYARD
The Val d’Orcia valleys produce prized Brunello wine. In the charming countryside between Pienza and Montepulciano, you can even buy out a winery for your wedding in Italy. Your Italian wedding guests will swoon as you exchange vows in front of Tuscany's vineyard-blanketed hills and silvery-green olive groves. Even better, the ceremony and catered reception can be held in the same glorious locale – adorned with villa-style decor, valley views and the centuries-old ruins of a castle.
CEREMONY AT A VILLA IN CHIANTI
In in the vineyard-draped heart of Chianti, you can get married in Italy at a 700-year-old villa. Surrounded by silvery-green olive groves and fruiting grape vines, you and your Italian destination wedding guests will be awed by marble furnishings, antique ceramics and rustic-chic country style. During your Italian wedding reception, your guests will uncork bottles of wine produced from the surrounding vineyards! A villa-style hotel, like Fonte de Medici or Castello di Spaltenna, is an idyllic setting for a wow-worthy wedding in Tuscany -- or the perfect locale for a stress-free honeymoon in Italy.
COUNTRY COMFORT BY CORTONA
Tucked in the wine country outside of Cortona, La Corte dei Papi is an oasis of Tuscan tranquility. Lovingly restored, this boutique property lies in a postcard-perfect valley framed by grape vines and terracotta farmhouses. Dating back to the 1700s, La Corte dei Papi will seduce you with its elegant design and traditional grace. Indeed, the Papi family has owned the property for generations – with the hotel currently run by the welcoming Davide and his mother. Nature lovers can enjoy an evening stroll here on the relais’ vast grounds – strolling amidst fruiting vines and gnarled olive trees.
The most romantic view in Florence isn’t from atop the Duomo. Instead, it’s found high above the city on the far side of the Arno River – in Piazzale Michelangelo. Framed on two sides by gardens flush with roses and irises, the view from Piazzale Michelangelo will leave you two breathless – encompassing Ponte Vecchio and the city’s terracotta roofs. It’s particularly enchanting at sunset when the pink-orange sun dips below the river’s tranquil waters. With See Italy's help, you can say "I do!" here -- savoring an Italian destination wedding in Florence here from a panoramic terrace.
