For an Italian destination wedding that is sure to be unforgettable, consider Relais Santa Croce. The exclusive Relais & Châteaux property located in the heart of Florence is available to rent out, giving your nuptials the intimacy of a private home but with luxury hotel services and amenities.

Enjoy the property all for you and your guests, featuring the world famous, three Michelin-starred restaurant Enoteca Pinchiorri – the perfect place to enjoy a gourmet meal. If going gourmet isn’t your preferred method of dining, head over the Guelfi & Ghibellini, serving traditional Tuscan cuisine. After dining, dance the night away at the Sala della Musica ballroom.

The soon-to-be newlyweds get to enjoy the most romantic suite available – located on the top floor completely separate from the rest of the hotel. The Santa Croce Royal Suite is the largest suite in Florence, and a perfect blend of old world beauty and modern day comfort, complete with 18th century artwork, coffered ceilings and a lavish parlor.

You and your guests can see everything that Florence has to offer with unique experiences curated by the staff. Think wine tasting and cooking classes in the Tuscan countryside, cultural tours of the Chianti on the back of a Vespa and racing at Ferrari’s Mugello track.

When you rent out the Relais Santa Croce, accomodations include:

24 Rooms and Suites:

  • 9 Deluxe Rooms
  • 4 Exclusive Rooms
  • 5 Junior Suites
  • 4 Suites
  • 1 De Pepi Presidential Suite

  • Welcome cocktails and canapés in the Sala dela Musica
  • A special in-room gift upon arrival
  • Gourmet Tuscan-style breakfast at Guelfi & Ghibellini
  • Free Wi-Fi for the entire stay for all guests

In addition to the amenties aforementioned, brides and grooms received personalize perfume from Dr. Vranjes and a complimentary wedding gift from Scuola del Cuoio, the authentic Florentine leather school.

If you’re thinking of saying “I Do” soon or already have swapped vows and are ready to celebrate your honeymoon, Relais Santa Croce currently has two offers, perfect for destination weddings or honeymoons.
