Be Romantic

Tiny villages and prestigious historic houses are the ideal places to experience the fairy tale of your wedding



Few places in the world can equal Italy as an icon of romanticism, a feeling that finds its highest expression in Tuscany, where millennia of art and history provide a fairy tale context in which to experience the most special day of all.

Here you can wake up in a frescoed room overlooking the rolling hills. In Monteriggioni, known as the "Gateway to the Middle Ages", a wedding becomes a honeymoon walking on the walls of the Castle overlooking a valley full of historic buildings, farmhouses, and ancient churches too numerous to count. In Colle Val d'Elsa, the fascinating Teatro dei Varii creates an intimate and welcoming setting.

The same imposing and ancient fortifications of the Cassero di Poggibonsi overlook a landscape thrilling to one and all.

Weddings in the villages:
the romance of Tuscan authenticity

Here, special places offer you the choice of whether to make them your own to enjoy for a single day or turn your wedding into a real unforgettable vacation for you and your guests.

You can decide whether to take your vows in a symbolic celebration or make them official with a civil rite. You can opt for a religious ceremony following Catholic, Jewish, Protestant, or Muslim traditions or choose a highly original and alternative ceremony. Then again, your ceremony might be the occasion to renew your vows.

In the territory of Casole d'Elsa, you will have the chance to be married by someone of your choice who will be appointed the mayor’s delegate. You can feel part of the community in very intimate, romantic ceremonies organized in the small hamlet of Mensano.

Great open spaces for ceremonies in unique contexts

The Cassero, unique in Tuscany, is an impressive fortification in the shape of a pentagon, inserted into a rectangle with fortified square towers at the four corners, which takes up the anthropomorphic shape theorized by Francesco di Giorgio Martini for the "ideal city". The Municipality of Poggibonsi makes it available for civil ceremonies, banquets, and wedding receptions.

From the main door you enter a long entrance corridor and the weapons room, from which you arrive in a large area open to the sky, the Piazza d'Armi. The unique nature of the setting, together with the availability of ample space (about 12 hectares), will let you organize a unique wedding with maximum freedom to customize the event: from the choice of the most atmospheric and romantic spot for the ceremony and the ideal places for aperitifs, cocktails, a banquet, and nighttime parties, even including the possibility of organizing a real wedding concert!

There is also the opportunity to celebrate in especially panoramic spots overlooking the church of San Lucchese and the town of San Gimignano.
