Tuscany offers the perfect settings for a couple in love and looking for a wonderful wedding destination: endless fields of sunflowers and poppies during summer, hilltop hamlets, medieval centers where the time seems to stand still. Tasty food (as well as unique wines) makes it even more special. Tuscany has astonished people with the beauty of its natural landscapes and its art cities featuring the highest concentration of artistic masterpieces in the world. Can a place on earth be more iconic than Tuscany?
Florence, Siena, and Pisa are just some of the most popular cities for a romantic escape in Italy, but Tuscany never fails to surprise: boasting the highest concentration of UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Italy, which in turns has the highest concentration in the world, Tuscany offers endless ideas and locations to say "I do", with a variety of options that makes it the main destination for wedding tourism in Italy.
From the already-mentioned most famous cities of art, with their elegant palaces representing the masterpiece of the Renaissance, to the ancient Etruscan cities of Volterra and Populonia, with splendid hillside views. And then San Gimignano, Montalcino, Pienza and Cortona; historic villages that seem to have been created just on purpose, such as Vinci, Certaldo and many enchanting fairytale castles. Tuscany is also famous for its romantic weddings in the countryside: the vineyards of Chianti, the rolling hills of Val d'Orcia, the heights of the mountains such as Amiata.
And finally, the Tuscan coast: from Versilia and the Apuan Coast in the north of the region to the Etruscan Coast in the south. The region's coastline is sometimes rustic and wild and sometimes sophisticated and elegant. The spectacular island of Elba is also ideal for a honeymoon break.
Choosing Tuscany as a wedding destination also means counting on a wide, efficient and well-distributed network of highly qualified suppliers able to successfully respond to any need or request, regardless of the culture and wishes of the couple.
From 2021, Toscana Promozione Turistica, the regional government agency, together with Destination Florence Convention & Visitors Bureau and its dedicated division Tuscany for Weddings, has launched a new project promoting Tuscany as an international Wedding Destination, to attract this tourist segment from all over the world. Strengthened by this role, Tuscany for Weddings draws on the know-how of its team to promote the infinite possibilities that Tuscany has to offer for celebrations and private events, identifying tailor-made solutions for you and any couple.
DFCVB has been the official host partner of the 3rd edition of the DWP Congress in 2016 coordinated by Tuscany for Weddings' team and its members. Thanks to its straight partnership with local institutions, Tuscany for Weddings is able to offer the opportunity to access exclusive and unconventional venues for any type of wedding ceremony.
