UNDER THE TUSCAN SUN: VENUES IN TUSCANY02 December, 2022
If you wish to get married in Italy, if you have a delicate soul and love nature, Art and the so-called “la dolce vita”, wedding venues in Tuscany are your perfect choice. Tuscany, the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance, is well known for its picturesque landscapes, local delicacies and wine, for its rich and fascinating history and Art legacy.
Nowadays, Tuscany is a region hosting some of the most romantic and luxurious weddings. Boundless spaces, wilderness, forests, charming lakes, fairy woods, several “rooms with a view”, vineyards and olive fields. That, and even more, is Tuscany.
First, choose the atmosphere you want to live in on your very special days: in Tuscany, you can equally find hamlets, little churches, ancient and fairy castles, elegant country villas, rustic and vibrant agriturismo (farmhouse), and luxurious historical hotels. Whether you choose to get married and set your reception in its beautiful cities, its countryside, or its seaside, Tuscany offers lots of perfect wedding venues.
You can select your wedding venues based on the number of guests or based on the reception preference: whether your choice is, Tuscany would surprise you with its unforgettable gems.

You can sleep while I drive – Antica Fattoria di Paterno [Montespertoli (FI)]
