How to Elope in Central Italy

A Comprehensive Guide

Home of some of the most famous cities in the world, like Rome, Florence and Siena, Central Italy is visited for its Tuscan rolling hills, the wine tasting experiences, endless relaxing walks in the Italian countryside, culture and history as well as its beautiful coastal areas.

The regions in central Italy are Tuscany, Umbria, Lazio and Marche.

Starting from the Italian region we now call our home, Tuscany, here’s a little summary of the many options you can choose for your Italian elopement.

1. Elope In Tuscany


Probably two of the most famous regions in Tuscany and for very good reasons. All the most iconic images that will come up in your mind when thinking of the Italian countryside will be those of Chiantishire and Val d’Orcia. These two regions nestle some of the most beautiful venues in Italy, surrounded by endless hills of vineyards and olive groves. Homes of several UNESCO heritage sites, the Chiantishire and Val d’Orcia areas are spectacular destinations all year round, although Autumn and Spring are our favourite periods!

For a better understanding of Val d’Orcia and its uniqueness, have a look at the recent guide we wrote here below:

Also, do San Gimignano, Monteriggioni, San Galgano, Siena, Pienza, Montalcino ring a bell? Wondering where they are? What if we told you they are all nestled in these two outstanding Tuscan areas?



Definitely not a destination most known abroad, the Apuan Alps region is still one of the most peculiar and beautiful natural regions in Central Italy. Wild and green, it is situated in a very strategic place as it is right in between the Italian Riviera and the southern part of Tuscany.


We might be a bit biased when it comes to elopements in Florence. Florence is our dear foster city, a city that we simply love exploring everyday. Again, Florence doesn’t need much of an introduction, literally an open-air museum, it is the city with the highest number of architectural outstanding sites in the whole world. Surrounded by hills with wonderful typical Tuscan little towns, in Florence and in its surrounding province you will have a full Italian experience on your elopement.



An entire chapter should be dedicated to such an extended region, that is why we wrote a comprehensive guide to elope to Tuscany so we can talk you through your many options with a more (and well deserved) detailed focus.

2. Elope In LAZIO



It might sound repetitive but again, Rome is one of a kind! Walking through its city center is really priceless. Since it is almost impossible to describe such a grand city with words, have a look at Kay & James’s elopement in Rome instead to have an idea of how an elopement in such a beautiful city might turn out like!

3. Elope In Umbria


Less known than its more famous sisters (Tuscany and Lazio), Umbria has nothing to feel less about. Even if it doesn’t have access to the sea, Umbria is home to some of the most beautiful Borghi in Italy. Olive groves, vineyards and less polish hills are Umbria’s main companions. If you are looking for an intimate, relaxing and real experience, then Umbria might be just the right Italian region for you.

Perugia, Assisi, Spello, Montefalco are just a few spectacular places you really cannot miss when you travel to Central Italy.


A memorable mention goes to the Conero area in the Marche. Its rocks and pristine waters make it one of the most spectacular natural landscapes in central Italy.





The best period to elope to Central Italy is between the end of March and the first half of June and the period between the second half of September and the second half of October.
