For cosmopolitan couples getting married in the city is the way to go, and with the range of beautiful cities Italy has to offer you get great photo opportunities too.
City weddings can be anything from modern and minimalist to sumptuous and traditional depending on the city and on the location you choose. From the romantic atmosphere and luxury establishments of Venice, to the Renaissance paradise of Florence, the combination of high fashion and history in Rome, and the oh-so-Italian Mediterranean warmth of Naples, there is something for everyone.
Themes can range from chic and simple cocktail parties in chic wine bars, to festivities in city centre ballrooms.
These four venues in four different Italian cities are perfect for city weddings:
Jet-setters, poets, artists and movie stars have long frequented this historical hotel, where antiques, rare silks, brocades and velvets create an aura of absolute luxury. With fine food, luxurious style and a city-centre position: No wonder the Marriott Grand Hotel Flora remains an exceptional choice after 100 years of history.
This is the perfect place for an elegant wedding in the heart of Rome, with incredible views over the city and a unique atmosphere of class.
