Tuscany Retreats: Plan your Dream Destination Wedding
A dream destination wedding that will leave everlasting memories in your hearts, start planning now for your awe-inspiring celebration in Tuscany...
Without a doubt, Tuscany is one of the most sought-after wedding destinations in the world. For some, it’s the picturesque countryside that draws them in, whilst, for others, it’s the rich history and art scene they want to experience. For many, it all comes down to the myriad of charming hamlets and estates that dot the region, while the gourmet and wine buffs are swept off their feet by the simple yet delicious cuisine and viniculture tradition. No matter the reason, when in Tuscany, couples are bound to have an exceptional time and take home special memories. Tuscany will stun you every step of the way.
The region is blessed with a scenic coastline, a beautiful archipelago composed of 7 islands, postcard-worthy hills, charming medieval hamlets, and romantic cities such as Florence, Siena and Lucca brimming with art and culture. Any backdrop you choose in Tuscany is picture-perfect. Plan a wedding on the beach in Versilia or on the beautiful Elba island, in a marvellous medieval square, on a hilltop castle or in a century-old family manor in Val D’Orcia or the Chianti area. And, that’s not all! If you wish to extend your stay or make your wedding a weekend-long celebration, you’ve come to the right place. In Tuscany, there are endless activities to partake in, from wine tasting in the countryside, hiking paths, island hopping tours or city trips. You won’t run out of options.

A wedding in Tuscany can be beautiful all year round.

To make it all happen, you can start by entrusting an experienced Italian wedding planner like Azzurro Polvere Wedding. With years of experience and strong relationships with local suppliers, Anna Cozzi will be able to find you the best deals across Tuscany. azzurropolverewedding.com
