Start planning your dream wedding in Italy with Thomson
Casanova, Cupid, St Valentine – it’s no coincidence Italy has given the world some of its greatest romantics.
It only takes one look at the country to understand the power it has on the heart strings. It specialises in stop-and-stare scenery, with mountains spilling down towards blush-coloured cities, and lakes speckled with castle-topped islets.
Choose a wedding in Italy and you can swap promises in places like Positano, where villas painted in peach, pink and vanilla tumble down towards a bay. Over in Sorrento, meanwhile, you’ll find a chic waterfront town that was made for couples. The best way to spend a day here is to alternate between waterfront walks with coffees in piazza-side cafés. As for evenings out, they begin in barely-lit restaurants and end in old-fashioned wine bars. Italy is probably the best place in the world to share food, too. In its trattorias, wood-fired pizzas, al dente pasta and double scoops of gelato are served in the soft glow of candlelight.
