Here I am with the second part of the post dedicated to Firenze.Many people dream about a wedding in one of the most significant city in the world…what about you?
You may consider a civil wedding in the magnificent Sala Rossa (red hall) or in the majestic Salone dei Cinquecento(hall of 500) in Palazzo Vecchio, the historical town hall located in the unique Piazza della Signoria or – outdoor – at the Giardino delle Rose (roses’garden)
If you wish a religious wedding there are so many marvellous catholic churches to choose - i.e.: Chiesa San Lorenzo, San Miniato, Santa Trinità… -one Jewish Synagogue and an episcopal church for e protestant ceremony.
No limit to celebrate a Blessing ceremony.
Unless you would choose one of the most suitable location in town:
top elegance with a beautiful garden - FOUR SEASONS HOTEL – www.fourseasons.com/it/florence/
an historic palace designed by Brunelleschi - ST.REGIS - www.stregisflorence.com
I suggest organizing the reception outside of the city centre- not far however not in the midst of the chaos- since Tuscany is well known also thanks to the fantastic countryside:
