Siena Weddings

Siena is undoubtedly one of the most magical towns of  Tuscany for destination weddings. It might be both ancient and modern at the same time, offering uncommon spots that make unique every newlyweds’ photo shoot.

Siena is all about art, history and breathtaking views. The ancient city, home of the famous Palio, provides a stay deep in the Italian culture. You can stroll through the streets of centre, visit the beautiful Duomo and get ice cream in the Piazza del Campo. You can drive through the beautiful hills that surround it, as well as Val di Merse and Val d’Orcia, on a vintage Fiat Cinquecento. You can stop then, drink a good Chianti and enjoy the beauty that nature and history gave to Siena.

If you like photography, don’t miss the Abbey of San Galgano, one of the most popular spots for photographers all around the world. These are just a few reason to make Siena the destination of your wedding or elopement.

And this gives the abbey an endless charm. Millions of tourists visit it every year.  Some of them decide to get married right here. […]
