Tuscany 02: Villa La Vedetta, a luxury wedding venue

Villa La VedettaDo you wish to enjoy the best views of Florence for your wedding in Italy?

Great, I know the right place for you. It is Villa La Vedetta, a 5 stars hotel in Florence and a luxury wedding venue which provides an amazing terrace overlooking Florence and the River Arno. I believe this is one of the most breathtaking settings for a wedding ceremony and reception in Tuscany. The view of the Florence Cathedral from here is just stunning and words do not make justice to such a unique place. You have to see it!

The hotel consists of a main villa built in neo classical style and a smaller romantic building located in the same park. Totally 18 rooms, all classy furnished with precious marbles of different colours, available for the accommodation of families and closer friends.

The Italian garden is neatly maintained: another exclusive location for a wedding ceremony or an appetizing aperitif.
