The best facilities for a rainbow wedding in Tuscany
23 October 2018
The Italian legal system doesn’t approve weddings between same-sex couples, but it’s not forbidden by the Italian law. Nevertheless, from June 2016 with the “law Cirinnà”, the civil union entered into force: now it gives couples the same rights and duties as the traditional wedding.
How to get to a rainbow wedding in Tuscany?
The rainbow flag has always been a symbol of homosexuality. From “civil union” we moved to “rainbow wedding”, which is definitely a nicer definition than the first one. In the following paragraphs we’ll list the best locations for celebrating a rainbow wedding in Tuscany.
Villa Medicea di Lilliano, wine estate – Grassina, Florence
Located among hills, in the middle of Chianti, the Villa Medicea di Lilliano is famous for its wine and olive oil but also for the residences of La Torre and La Corte: they’ve been recently restored to create the perfect combination with technology, comfort, innovation and tradition. The stay in the Villa gives relax and peacefulness every day of the year, but it’s particularly recommended during grape harvesting when you can get closer to the oenological tradition of Chianti.
The villa also represents the perfect site for fancy events, either a small ceremony or an unforgettable party. If you want to celebrate a romantic wedding, Villa Medicea di Lilliano is the right location for you. Moreover, the staff gives a discount to homosexual couples to celebrate the law Cirinnà.
Villa il Cerretino – Poggio a Caiano, Prato
Located among the hills of Poggio a Caiano, the villa offers a beautiful view of the Tuscan landscape. Villa il Cerretino (whose name comes from the cerro trees), has been recently restored with the latest comforts. The Villa, full of spaces and rooms, is the ideal location for celebrating any kind of ceremony.
Abbazia di Spineto – Sarteano, Siena
A natural lake, an estate of about 800 hectares and over 1000 years of history, make the Abbazia di Spineto in Sarteano a dream place for any wedding. The environment in which the structures are housed (11 hamlets, the churchyard, the terrace overlooking the Parco delle Absidi and all the rooms specially designed for Marriage and not only) are able to bring to life the peace and silence required by intense moments such as that of one’s “yes”..
Obviously the structure is very happy to host Rainbow Weddings because in a place of peace it is not possible to make distinctions of any kind and love (the one with a capital A) is always the preferred guest. The Abbey is located on the border with the Val d’Orcia, UNESCO World Heritage Site, in a special area where the essences of the earth and silence still manage to remove its guests from the stress and noise of the city.
Trebiolo Relais – Hotel restaurant – Località Olmo, Fiesole
Il Trebiolo is located on top of an hill, surrounded by castles, churches and posh villas. It is an ancient house built in 1100. The stay is an adventure through the nature, characterized by the respect of the environment. The cuisine offers the best dishes of the Tuscan tradition using biological first quality ingredients. It’s a great place for celebrating a wedding because you can benefit from the several bedrooms and living rooms to make the ceremony last longer.
