Tuscany: the perfect venue for a dream wedding

“The Tuscan countryside. Pure enchantment, crisp colors and sharp outlines. And somewhere, a hamlet on the hills that will make your eyes sparkle.”

So says Fabrizio Carampana, author of many aphorisms about this beautiful Italian region. And who can blame him? Tuscany fills the eyes and hearts of anyone who visits it, whether a recurring visitor or a traveler coming all the way from the other side of the globe to take the trip of a lifetime.

What makes this place so special is its atmosphere. Views so perfect they look like paintings: winding roads that fade away across ridges and perched hamlets frozen in time, blue skies, delicious food and then the locals. People who know how to make you feel at home, to make you smile and who can immediately transform into lifelong friends.

Tuscany has bewitched the hearts not only of Italians but also (and especially) of foreigners, who choose it as their summer getaway or as the place of choice for more introspective journeys, following in the footsteps of the great writers and artists who have been captivated by this magical region throughout history, singing its beauty in poems and novels.
