Posted by Virginie (14/04/2017)
There’s no doubt that Tuscany is one of the most perfect places to propose. The region is littered with endless beautiful spots that are ideal places to pop the question. If you want to propose to your other half in Tuscany, we’ve got some wonderful ideas and proposal inspiration for you. Here’s some truly magical and outstanding places to propose throughout Tuscany.
Florence is full of so many amazing spots, so it depends what sort of proposal you are after. If you don’t mind braving the crowds and proposing with other people around, pop the question along the Ponte Vecchio at sunset, or by the Piazzale Michelangelo which offers sweeping views of the entire city. For somewhere a little more private, head to the Boboli Gardens and fine a deserted spot along the walkways of the picturesque gardens.
If you are feeling brave you could propose in the middle of the historic Piazza del Campo, one of Europe’s most impressive medieval squares. Or, escape the crowds by climbing to the top of the Tower of Mangia (Siena Bell Tower) which offers breathtaking panoramic views of Siena and beyond.
In the grounds of Brolio Castle
Brolio castle is so picturesque and beautiful, your partner will be blown away by the setting when you propose. Walk around the castle grounds, through the gardens and choose a spot to get down on one knee. The views all around the castle are absolutely jaw-dropping.
At a vineyard or by an olive tree
Of course, for a proposal in a classic Tuscan setting you could head to a vineyard. Go wine tasting before or afterwards, or simply stroll through the grounds and find the perfect place to pop the question. Or you could bring a picnic and sit down below an olive tree for a lovely low key proposal.
The Chianti Road 222
If you are feeling spontaneous, why not leave things to the last minute and find the right moment to propose. Drive along the Chianti 222 road and stop off when you find your favourite view, there’s lots of charming places along this road that would make for a wonderful proposal spot.
Finally there’s the numerous charming medieval hilltop towns to choose from. Pienza was the town that Zeffirelli used to film Romeo and Juliet, and is a very romantic place to propose. Other options include San Gimignano, Montalcino, Lucca, Radda in Chianti and Montepulciano.
In the natural hot springs
If your partner loves nature and the great outdoors, why not propose to her in the natural hot springs that can be found throughout Tuscany? Consider going out of season and it will be a little less busy, so you can grab a quiet moment together. Sit in the warm waters out in the woods and pop the question near a natural waterfall. Try the hot springs in Saturnia or the lesser known Bagni San Filippo.
