Italy is the country of romance and … FUN! Italians love having a good time and not just at the dinner table. Look at these 5 ways to rev up your wedding day in Italy.
In Italian it’s billiardino but in every language it’s FUN! Spend a relaxing day-before holding an actual tournament and as guests arrive at your Italian venue to check in, add their name to the roster. Some pizza and beer will keep all players in the game and the atmosphere will already be festive, just in time for the big day. Check with your wedding venue and see if they have a fussball set onsite, like Villa Le Piazzole has and it’s located right outside of Florence – literally walking distance to downtown.
2. LAWN GAMES
If your wedding ceremony is late afternoon, why not set up some lawn games for guests to spend the morning playing while you’re getting ready. Bocci balls, lawn bowling, cornhole are some of the lawn-friendly games but there are also grass-friendly versions of horseshoe, crochet, lawn darts and others available online.
3. BIKE RIDE
Take a scenic ride just about anywhere and enjoy the breathtaking landscapes all around Italy. Everyone can ride when you use a ‘magic’ bike, an electrically assisted pedaling system that lets you gear how much you want to work going uphill. Get an Italian guide to lead you on roads you would never find otherwise, like Luca at Bike Around Tuscany does.
4. COOKING CLASSES!
Have fun learning to make fam-to-table regional specialties wherever you are in Italy, there’s always a ‘Nonni’ to reveal the tricks of the trade in making pasta, Italian sides, and desserts like tiramisù. If you are renting a private villa you can hire a Chef at home like via Medina.
5. VESPA RIDE!
Take a spin on winding roads through Tuscany on a vintage vespa! You may need a little driver’s ed to steer through the Italians but the experience is one of a kind! Italian Vintage garage takes care of rentals in Rome.
