At the end of November we received an update about the fee to get married at the Town Hall of Florence. One of those updates you would never want to receive. The board of the city of Florence decided to increase … by 3,3 times the rate for non Italians to get married at the famous Red Hall, Red Room, Sala Rossa or however you are used to hear it mentioned.

On top, until recently as a kind of an exception, we could still grant a wedding on Saturday mornings to our non Italian couples, unfortunately the update created also a stricter rule to days availabilities, with the result that unless one of the couple is residing in Florence, or is registered at AIRE with his last city of residence in Italy being Florence, none will be allowed to get married on Saturday in Florence, regardless the rate. Thus a non Italian who wants to get married at the Red Room-Hall-Sala Rossa can only get married on Wednesday or Thursday mornings. Other rooms/days may be available at even higher rates and whose calendar is usually published not before than 6 months from the date, resulting with the impossibility to chose the date of the wedding itself before 6 months.

I thought it was important to create a clear post about the matter to let our readers know and tell them that there are amazing town halls in Tuscany with frescoed rooms, in medieval palaces, without days/time restrictions and whose rates range between 250 and 500€ for non Italians.
