Luxury elopement in Rome and Florence – Italy
When your dream is to elope in Italy but Italy has so many beautiful places that you can not choose, what is the solution?
Effie e Leigh decided to do a multiple days elopement around Rome and Florence.
For your elopement in Italy you will find so much choice in big cities like Venice, Rome, Florence or Milan, in small villages like Alberobello, Matera, Lake Como, Lake Orta, Cinque Terre or by plane bigger like Tuscany , the Langhe or Sicily.
Once you understand what your priorities are, it will be easier to choose.
Effie and Leigh are a couple who live in Australia and are always surrounded by so much unspoiled nature, therefore they are always looking for cities to see to discover something new.
When it came time to choose whether to do the elopement in Rome or Florence, the choice was simple, we do a two-day elopement so we don’t have to choose and we live in both places.
Rome and Florence are two wonderful cities and very different from each other but also super well connected and with a high speed train they are just over an hour away from center to center so the logistics were super simple.
First day of elopement: Florence Italy
Florence is a gem of a city, really very very beautiful and one of my favorites for an elopement in Italy.
The couple stayed in the wonderful Villa Cora which is an ancient villa located about 5 minutes from the historic center.
The villa offers a wonderful view of the city of Florence and is truly wonderful inside, especially the Hall of Mirrors, which reminds us of Versailles a lot.
After enjoying a coffee in the hall of mirrors and a cocktail by the pool, we went to the Piazza del Duomo for a nice walk in the center of Florence.
For their first day of elopement in Florence, the bride and groom wore more informal attire. Effie chose a wonderful Patrizia Pepe outfit with a top full of feathers.
Once you reach the center of Florence it is very easy to go everywhere on foot and enjoy every little street and glimpse that the city gives us.
Starting from the Duomo we then arrived in piazza della Signoria where we ordered a pizza, which on a trip to Italy just cannot be missed.
On the steps in front of the Uffizi we stopped to be able to enjoy the pizza before it got cold, it is true that pizza is also good cold, however…
One of the best known symbols of Florence is the old bridge which cannot be missed when seeing Florence.
After the pizza we continued towards the Arno river so that we could see the old bridge.
Second day of elopement: Rome Italy
Rome is the city of sweet life, romantic, alive, wonderful and eternal.
The city of Rome, unlike Florence, has a much larger center and we recommend choosing an area to enjoy the elopement and not trying to make the day stressful in order to be able to do with everything you can find in the city.
Know that even if you run from one part of the city to another in one day, you won’t be able to see everything.
With Effie and Leigh we concentrated in a small part of the center dedicating the early hours of the morning to it.
To begin we stopped at the Trevi fountain which is by far one of the most famous places in the city and near which there is a very good bar and bakery.
The croissants and the Maritozzi are truly spectacular.
Spouses always love to taste new foods and we can say that their elopement between Rome and Florence was also a spectacular culinary experience with a careful choice of stops to make.
Continuing after the Trevi fountain we always went to the right crossing Via del Corso which is one of the main streets of Rome and then arriving in Piazza del Phanteon.
A curiosity about the Phanteon is that it is a cylindrical church with a central opening to the sky.
A little further away is Piazza Navona which personally for me is one of the most beautiful squares in the city, here a stop to enjoy a spritz could not be missing.
Luxury elopement a Palazzo Dama a Roma
Just as in Rome, the spouses stayed at Villa Cora, each hotel where to sleep was carefully chosen.
Palazzo Dama is a boutique hotel in the center of Rome, a stone’s throw from Piazza del Popolo.
It is built in a elegant Liberty villa that was once the residence of the noble Italian Malaspina family. Here, the Marquises welcomed diplomats, aristocrats and the cultural elite of past centuries.
I leave you a selection of the two days luxury elopement in Italy between Florence and Rome.
