After a long day of traveling from Florence, we found ourselves driving down a winding road. On either side of us we could see an abundance of lush greenery spilling over the hillsides.

When we arrived at  Hotel Monteverdi in Tuscany we were checked in and met in the enoteca (wine repository) for Prosecco and refreshments. Doesn't this look like the ideal Italian wedding venue!

After, we were whisked away on a guided tour of Castiglioncello Del Trinoro, the medieval village where Monteverdi is located. Afterwards we enjoyed sunset cocktails at the Monteverdi Library. The food was served buffet-style at one of Monteverdi’s stunning villas . Later we returned to our cozy six-bedroom Villa Muri Antichi, we couldn’t wait to see what tomorrow had in store for us!

That next day we woke to the stunning views of Val d’ Orcia and were instantly filled with excitement! We had a light breakfast and a refreshing yoga class. We then had a blast learning how to make pasta at a cooking class with a lunch and wine to follow. It was absolutely incredible to learn some of the Italian cooking secrets from such talented chefs! Luckily for us there was another wine tasting to follow at the Castel di Brolio. This led to the Relais La Suvera for a Tuscan Bites catered dinner which was the perfect way to end the day.

The next morning we departed Monteverdi for La Foce and enjoyed a tour of their home and gardens of Villa La Foce. The vila had been restored to it’s original beauty and the English gardens were impeccably manicured. This is another ideal location for an Italian Wedding in Tuscany.

After the tour we eagerly made our way to dinner. We arrived at the Castiglioncello Church at Hotel Monteverdi for a real treat of incredible live music. Later, we enjoyed cocktails and pizza, along with a romantic concert and a formal dinner at for the last night. The late night show of Cararet in Muri Antichi is a performance that we will never forget!


Our Tuscany adventure was such a wonderful and whimsical weekend that truly captured our hearts forever. Thanks so much to our hosts David Beahm and Christina Matteucci, along with Hotel Monteverdi! We were able to form wonderful new friendships across the globe which left us with unforgettable ideas for our future events to come!
