No matter where in the world you choose to spend your destination wedding or honeymoon, we always encourage couples to explore their chosen destination as much as possible. Thankfully, this is becoming easier and easier to do. For example, Autograph Collection Hotels offers their “Exactly Like Nothing Else” hotel experiences and packages. Autograph Collection Hotels operates nearly 100 hotels worldwide and prides itself on being high-end and diverse. To embrace the settings of the Collection’s hotels, the brand recently introduced its “Exactly Like Nothing Else” hotel experiences. The experiences and packages are tailored to each specific hotel or destination and are geared toward making the most out of each romantic setting. In honor of wedding couples and honeymooners, we asked Autograph Collection Hotels to send along a sampling of possible ELNE packages. Here are three unique packages from Italy: 


The luxury Boscolo Venezia is an excellent location for completely immersing yourself in the enchanting atmosphere of Venice, because it is housed in the old and prestigious Rizzo-Patarol noble palace. Its XVII-century façade has a portal and loggia on overlapping levels and is hiding a secret garden, the only one to be found in a hotel in Venice, which is perfectly preserved and faces onto the lagoon. Located in Sestiere Cannaregio, it is close to the center of Venice but at arm’s length from the more crowded thoroughfares. Thus it shows the true face of Venice and its inhabitants. 

Exploring Venice Package:

Take a moment of your romantic holiday in Venice to taste the typical Venetian dishes, explore the green secret corners and get lost by Gondola through canals.

  • Taste of 10 “Cicchetti veneziani” + 2 glasses of selected wine
  • Access to the fabulous hotel private garden
  • Tour in Gondola

COST: price starting at $400 euro/night for a deluxe room.


The Boscolo Milano was created by the famous architect Italo Rota, who completely redesigned a 1920s structure. The bright colors in the luxury lobby and the majestic nature of the Harlequin sculptures break up the rigor of the 5-Star buildings around and introduce an eclectic avant-garde luxury design. Many famous actors, artists and singers choose Boscolo Milan as the ideal location for their photo shootings. 

Special Effects Stage – Portrait in Milan Package:

  • Photo shoot session
  • Choice of 1 hotel’s location
  • 35 photos on USB KEY
  • Digital album
  • Dedicated application available on apple and android devices
  • Themed welcome drink
  • Overnight stay: room cinema or panorama

COST: price starts at $400 euro for classic room.


In the heart of the Eternal City, in Piazza della Repubblica, between the Baths of Diocletian and the Basilica of Santa Maria degli Angeli designed by Michelangelo, is located one of the most stunning 5-Star Hotels –  the Boscolo Exedra. The hotel traces its origins to the large semi-circle inside the baths area of imperial Rome on top of which the modern Piazza della Repubblica was laid out. Important remains of the Baths of Diocletian (298-305 A.D.) can be seen on the hotel’s first floor.

A Tour Through Roman History Package:

  • 2 Night Accommodation in our Panorama Room overlooking the stunning Piazza della Repubblica.
  • Daily Buffet Breakfast for 2 people
  • Visit to the Roman Houses at Celio: the fascinating site beneath the church of St. Paul and John has more than 20 rooms decorated with paintings from the third to the twentieth century revealing aspects of the Roman daily life over the centuries.
  • Guests will enjoy a typical return trip on a horse carriage
  • The visit will be followed by a typical dinner based on recipes of the Romans tradition

COST: price starts at $660 euro for a classic room.
