Directions on how to reach the main cities in Italy
If you plan to get married in Tuscany, consider landing at Pisa or Florence Airports. These are the two main airports in Tuscany where low-cost flights are quite frequent especially in Pisa. Pisa has an in-airport train station which will connect you to the centre of Florence in 1 hour with a direct hourly connection. If you plan to stay in the Chianti Region or however outside the centre of Pisa, Lucca or Florence, we suggest you consider renting a car, as visiting and moving around Tuscany might be difficult without a car. There are basically no public means of transportation to the many farmhouses, castles, villas located outside the main cities. In case you need to meet your Consulate or Embassy in Rome (some consulates/embassies are only in Rome i.e. Lithuanian as an example) consider landing in Rome and then either drive or take a train to Tuscany.
If you prefer to tie the knot in Venice, the magical city, consider landing at Marcopolo Airport in Venice or Treviso’s. Other airports might be used such as Verona or Trieste. Milan Malpensa or Bergamo’s are quite far from Venice, and it will take you 3 to 4 hours depending on the season to reach Venice, but consider landing there as your first stop in case you have to meet your Consulate in Italy to obtain a Nulla Osta to the Wedding (i.e. Russian and Australian citizens). Once in Venice, we suggest you buy a “vaporetto” ticket for the whole length of your stay, it will save you a lot of money and grant you ease of movement all around the city.
For a wedding on the lake Como, the best choice is surely landing at Malpensa airport, renting a car is then the best option to reach the venue of your stay on the lake Como, or ask us to arrange a private shuttle bus.
If you are getting married on the alps we suggest to land in Milano Malpensa or Verona (depending on which area you will be getting married on the Alps, and then ask us for help to arrange shuttles. A car rental is also strongly suggested.
