only 6 months to go!

We received some information from our wedding planner about two unique hotels close to the Villa where we will get married (and not far from the city center). See links for more information:

Villa Le Piazzole Montartino
in the Florentine hills near the villa, but a little further from town than the other hotel. This looks like a "quieter" location. They offer not only rooms, but also more apartment style accommodations for larger groups of people.

Residence Michelangiolo
villa/hotel within 5 minutes walking distance to historical center of Florence

We don't anticipate needing to reserve blocks of rooms due to the small amount of people who will be coming, so please go ahead and secure your own reservations if you are planning on joining us. Immediate family will be staying in the Villa with us!

As I'm sure you've all heard, the U.S. passport office has been bombarded with passport requests due to some travel security changes. If you are planning on making the trip in April with us and don't already have a passport, now is the time to get one. And if you do have a passport, check the expiration date!
