The region has plenty of beautiful villas, surrounded by large gardens with ancient trees. Immersed in the silence of Tuscan hills, these venues are the ideal place for ceremonies and parties. Many municipalities organize secular weddings within the gardens and usually a caterer takes care of the wedding party. Alternatively, you may choose a religious ceremony in one of the Renaissance churches downtown and celebrate with your guests in luxurious rooms. The most romantic couples will surely remain impressed by some beautiful neo-Gothic buildings on the shore of a lake.
