The best locations for a wedding in Tuscany
Wide-ranging, surrounded by nature or in the historic cities of Tuscany, the wedding locations in this region are among the most beautiful in Italy. Brides and grooms who choose Tuscany as their wedding destination are spoilt for choice.
To make the arduous task of choosing the perfect wedding location in Tuscany a little easier, we introduce here the best places to get married in this beautiful region.
Villa Catignano is located in the Chianti Classico Senese countryside, 8 km from Siena and 70 km from Florence. The villa is an ancient aristocratic residence with a splendid adjacent farm. Over the years it has been transformed into a truly unique and special accommodation facility, perfect for holidays but also for weddings. In fact, it includes a complex of really elegant flats, a swimming pool and ample space to welcome your wedding guests.
What makes Villa Catignano perfect as a wedding destination is certainly the beautiful and evocative Italian Garden that surrounds the structure. Here you can not only organise an engaging outdoor ceremony, but also immortalise the bride and groom on their most beautiful day. The location is in fact immersed in nature and cared for down to the smallest detail, offering a breathtaking and perfect backdrop for any type of photo.
The garden is also perfect for taking a relaxing stroll and admiring the beautiful statues depicting the Four Seasons, the pride of this beautiful place. Photographs here turn out to be a fairytale, as nature provides a breathtaking backdrop for any couple in love.
At sunset this place turns into a corner of paradise, with the sun kissing the bride and groom's skin and turning it golden. Shots with the beautiful villa as a backdrop or in the fabulous interior rooms bring any husband and wife into a fairy tale, where she is the princess and he is her brave prince.
For those who choose Tuscany as a wedding destination, Villa Catignano knows how to give emotions and make the wedding day a moment of great wonder.
Let's now talk about a castle where you can breathe in all the history of ancient Italy. Castello del Trebbio stands in an area surrounded by nature, in the heart of Chianti Rufina. It is located just 15 km from the beautiful city of Florence. This location is not only very picturesque because of its age and structure, but it is also a wine-growing and agricultural company producing organic products.
The castle has thus been transformed over time into a sustainable project operating in the agricultural field, but was originally a historic structure dating back to the 12th century. It belonged at this time to the Pazzi family, who turned the castle into their stronghold.
Today, Castello del Trebbio hosts many visitors, for events, lunches, dinners, but also weddings. In fact, its large historic rooms accommodate large numbers of people and can be customised as desired. The location is therefore perfect for any wedding, whatever the theme.
The stone walls, the gates and the rooms furnished as they were in the Middle Ages allow the bride and groom to immerse themselves in a fairy tale of times gone by, when the romantic rules of chivalry were in force. The evocative terrace overlooking the Chianti hills helps guests to experience true Italian style, rustic and closely linked to the territory. All guests will adore Castello del Trebbio!
Relais La Costa, historic residence
Let's move on to a location for those who want a chic and exclusive wedding. Relais La Costa Dimora Storica is a house with a thousand-year history, beautiful and with a luxurious feel. For those who want a dream wedding, Relais La Costa offers a perfect backdrop that communicates joy and emotion.
It islocated between Monteriggioni and Siena, in the silence of the Chianti hills. Siena is only 15 km away and Florence 70 km. The location includes wonderful rooms and also a luxurious SPA where you can relax before or after your wedding. Relais La Costa is truly a fairytale location that allows the most elegant luxury to meet the tranquillity and beauty of nature.
The venue also has wonderful outdoor spaces where you can hold your ceremony or reception. In the event of bad weather or a winter wedding, the indoor hall is also perfect for accommodating up to more than a hundred guests and offering them the best local produce.
Let's move inland and visit the beautiful coast of Tuscany. Celebrating one's wedding in a seaside location is an increasingly popular wish among married couples. The sea provides spectacular backdrops, even more so when the sun sets over the horizon. It also provides a relaxed, casual atmosphere, far removed from the more traditional ceremonies with all the rigid rituals.
If you decide to have your wedding in Tuscany, by the sea, you absolutely must consider Villa Parisi as one of your choices. The mansion stands in the middle of Livorno's nature, just a few steps from the sea. The scenery is breathtaking and immerses the location in a relaxing silence.
The villa is surrounded by the crystal clear sea and a cool pine forest. The location is elegant and refined thanks to its outdoor and indoor spaces. Outside you can find a green garden where you can take wonderful photos or organise the ceremony.
Villa Parisi is a prestigious old patrician villa from which you can also see the Island of Elba. At the disposal of the bride and groom, the structure offers two wonderful covered halls with sea views and neoclassical furnishings. This is perfect for the reception in case of bad weather or if you prefer a more intimate setting.
There is also a wonderful terrace overlooking the sea to enjoy breathtaking views and an atmospheric platform overlooking the sea, perfect for the long-awaited cutting of the cake.
Villa Parisi is an excellent location for those seeking a relaxed, yet very elegant atmosphere. It combines the beauty of a historic home with the freshness of the sea and nature. After the ceremony, you can enjoy a swim in the pool or a dip in the crystal clear waters of the Tyrrhenian Sea.
Also by the sea, theAugustus Hotel in Forte dei Marmi offers the possibility of celebrating a wedding in Versilia. The ceremony can be celebrated directly on the beach, lulled by the waves of the sea.
The party, on the other hand, can take place in the exclusive resort, which will be decorated according to the bride and groom's wishes. From the many terraces in the resort, you can admire the Apuan Alps and immerse yourself in the most authentic Italian nature.
Whether indoors or outdoors, the ceremony at the Augustus Hotel will be organised down to the smallest detail and allow any couple to enjoy the best day of their lives. There is plenty of space, even for large families!
