In this blog post I present my current top five venues for your Jewish wedding in Tuscany.  As a Jewish destination wedding planner, I am privileged to have visited and worked at many truly spectacular venues. I am delighted to share some of them with you here.  Kosher catering, should you require it for your Jewish wedding in Tuscany, is available for all of these venues.

Great Synagogue of Florence

I can’t write about Jewish weddings in Florence without mentioning the Great Synagogue of Florence.  This historic building is perfect for a traditional Jewish wedding.  Located close to the centre of Florence, it is easily accessible for your guests and then an easy coach journey to most of the Florence based venues for your wedding reception.

The Jewish community in Florence will also welcome you and your guests at Friday night and Shabbat services.
