We are so excited for you to join us in Italy. Here's what you need to know about travel, accommodations, and the wedding day.

GETTING TO THE WEDDING

We recommend you fly into Milan, Italy. From there, you can take a 2-hour train to Varenna, Italy. If you have accommodations in our hotel, Hotel Villa Cipressi, the train stop will be close by. The wedding ceremony will take place across the lake at Villa del Balbianello, and the reception will take place at Hotel Villa Cipressi. We will provide transportation by boat to and from the ceremony.

ACCOMODATIONS

We have reserved a limited number of rooms at a discounted price at our reception venue, Hotel Villa Cipressi. You can reserve a room on the RSVP form.

If you decide not to stay with us, there are a number of AirBnbs and small hotels in the area. We recommend staying in the town of Varenna.

ATTIRE

The dress occasion is cocktail or formal. We recommend the following color schemes: earth tones, tans, nudes, soft blues, and other pastels.

 

Please note that there will be some walking to and from the boats, so please wear comfortable shoes.
