Amazing Florence Italy Medieval Tower Wedding

Looking for a  12th century Medieval Tower Wedding to “wow” your guests with your Destination wedding plans.  I’ve got the perfect place for you all wrapped up in a luxury boutique hotel. Welcome to the one-of-a-kind Antica Torre di Via Tornabuoni Hotel. You’ll be located amidst some of the most fascinating and historical places within the romantic city of Florence, Italy. A medieval tower is transformed into a celebrated hotel and boutique-style mansion to celebrate your memorable wedding day. You and your celebrated guests will certainly enjoy the grandest of wedding holiday experiences.

1. Luxury Accommodations with Elegant Touches of Renaissance Art

It’s all about the accommodations when it comes to wonderful downtime after a day of city adventure-seeking. So, let’s start with the deluxe room accommodations. These rooms are perfect for couples attending that seek lovely views of the hills surrounding Florence. These can also be easily connected to the romantic Jr suite. A great fit for families who want the additional room and privacy. The Renaissance suites provide a bit more space and are artfully decorated in warm shades of red and gold or green and turquoise. Two bathrooms are available in these desirable suites. Best of all, these rooms can also be connected with the Deluxe Suites upon request and availability. Couples get ready for the Grand Deluxe Suite for your post-wedding stay. You’ll enjoy jasmine-perfumed private terraces, stunning views of Monte Morello and are nicely situated within the historical Medieval Tower.


2. Location, Location, Location!

What bride doesn’t want to do a little post-wedding shopping at some of the most exclusive Italian designer stores? You’ll find them just around the corner when you step out into the centuries-old brick layered streets. You’ll want to check out Wanny de Filippo, the designer and creator of the famous trendy leather bag and accessories brand. Also, you won’t want to miss a visit to Official Profumo Farmaceutica Santa Maria Novella. Short for amazing perfumes and cosmetics that a bride and her bridesmaids will run straight over too after hotel check-in. That is just the beginning of adventurous activities and shopping you will experience. The iconic Tornabuoni street runs right into great sites like the Santa Trinita Bridge, built way back in the 13th century. You’ll be right in the center of town, where you and your guests can enjoy a quick walk to many major Florence tourist attractions.

3. Sound Immersion Breakfasts and Spectacular Terrace Sunset Dining

I love the idea of waking up to breakfast in the Salotto/Lounge, complete with the newest technology of sound immersion. If you are wondering what sounds immersion is, then imagine the latest sound technology diffusing melodic sounds in perfect harmony. Eat a hearty breakfast while surrounded by precious paintings and artfully refined furniture. Enjoy a wide variety of locally sourced foods and delectable treats available daily.

In the evening, panoramic views of Florence from the Rooftop Terrace will dazzle your guests. Taste the rich earth tones of carefully selected wines from world-renowned Tuscan vineyards. All while surrounded by eight hundred-year-old tower merlons. Set up a group lesson in Negroni Cocktail making and other, specialities including a popular favourite, the “Sunset Aperitif.” Delight in artful dishes such as the fresh fish caught daily from the Gulf of Follonica. Choose the Chianina meat and saffron, which is still hand-picked locally and lovely prepared to perfection.


4. Exclusive Openings for Museums for “Hotel Guests Only.”

Imagine being able to offer your wedding group a private museum tour. That is one of the wow factors that impressed me the most. Choose from the church of Santa Croce, The Bargello Museum, Palazzo Vecchio Museum among others. It’s an exclusive offer that is available after regular museum hours to you and your loved ones. The hotel concierge is ready to assist with booking these amazing tours, at select rates. Pre-wedding or Post-wedding events with aperitifs or even a private cocktail reception or dinner can be booked, based on availability. This assures your wedding group stay will be a once-in-a-lifetime holiday experience. These fabulous private tours can be booked in advance so don’t forget to ask us about how we can assist with this.


5. Wedding Memories to Last a Lifetime

What says destination wedding better than a group stay in a medieval Tower in the heart of Florence. Just a few minutes away from the Duomo and the Ponte Vecchio. Here you will be welcomed into the most refined environment perfect for hosting exclusive reception events. With groups of 32 to 40 guests, the Salotto lounge is divine. If views are your dream reception vision, then look no further than the Rooftop Terrace, where you can enjoy views of the Duomo while overlooking the scenic Arno River. The Rooftop Terrace complete with an elegant Gazebo that comfortably seats up to thirty guests.

Catering options are plentiful here, thanks to the hotel’s talented Chef. You’ll be enchanted with delicious dishes served piping hot. Delectable desserts will include amazing guests. If dietary concerns are an issue gluten-free, vegetarian or vegan, need to worry here. Wedding Staff and Chef are attentive and very accommodating to all your wedding reception wants and needs. My favourite wedding tip: Two hours of language coaching is available to teach you the true language of love in order to exchange magical wedding vows.
