In the countryside, among the vineyards and olive groves, there are hamlets and farmhouses, as well as walled villas and castles. All of these make gorgeous wedding settings, for a wedding in Tuscany
Hill towns overlook the countryside from on high, many encircled by Etruscan walls and slender cypress trees. Handsome palaces testify to the region's wealth, while medieval town halls indicate a long-standing tradition of democracy and self-government. Several imposing castles and villas were built for the Medici family, the great patrons of the Renaissance. They remain, in all their splendor, and are very romantic wedding locations.
