There are few more romantic places on earth to host a destination wedding than in the beautiful country of Italy. It’s so diverse with locations on the beach, in the Tuscan countryside, on island and even in the city too. If a city chic destination wedding is your speed, then we think you should seriously consider a historic property in Rome, one of the most romantic cities in the world!
We recently traveled to this spectacular city and discovered a lesser-known property perfect for a formal and oh-so grand destination wedding. A private home turned event space, La Pinacoteca del Tesoriere, is rich in history, ornate décor, and sophisticated wedding backdrops. From a private chapel in which to host an intimate destination wedding to a grand ballroom that once housed the Roman elite, this unique setting is in the heart of the city where location is everything, but the interior is not to be overlooked as well.
Across the street from San Luigi dei Francesi Church, you can opt for a religious ceremony just steps from the front door to keep everyone inside for the entire day within the multi-level property.
You’ll be welcomed by a grand staircase in what was once the carriage house before you ascend to the main floor, where each room is more impressive than the next. Total privacy is what you’ll find and fantastic settings for your wedding photos too. There’s even an outdoor terrace and modernized restrooms so your guests feel like they’re in old world luxury while enjoying the finer things of modern times.
La Pinacoteca del Tesoriere is ideal for the couple who wants an iconic Roman wedding with plenty of privacy, pomp and circumstance and fantastic food too (their in-house caterer, Le Voila, is incredible). Whether you’ll be serving 500 of your closest friends for cocktails or an intimate group of friends and family, the variety within these walls means there’s something for every size with a propensity for the over-the-top style.
