Extraordinary Settings for a Romantic Proposal in Florence

Rocco Forte Hotels

From the golden-pink light dancing across the Ponte Vecchio at sunset to the distant views of the cypress strewn Tuscan hills, Firenze Romantica has a thousand and one  choices for a unique proposal.


Known as ‘Firenze Romantica’ where the sun-dappled medieval streets seem to sing a never-ending song to lovers, Florence has romance in its soul. Every corner has a story of passion and yearning, asking a loved one for their hand in marriage in such a setting has to be one of the most memorable experiences in the world.



Guests at the Hotel Savoy, overlooking café-lined Piazza della Repubblica, can have a special proposal arranged for them in true style. Climb the 223 steps of the Torre D’Arnolfo at dusk and ask the question, champagne flutes in hand, with Florence spread before you like a precious tapestry. For romance on the water, sail in an traditional “barchetto”, the Florence gondola, down the Arno past the palazzi of the lungarno, and as you pass under the iconic Ponte Vecchio, we will have a ring dropped down in a wicker basket - what could be a better tale to tell at your wedding?



The moonlit Piazzale Michelangelo at night, a scenic twenty minute walk away, is an enchanting setting for a simple Tuscan picnic. Serenaded by musicians and with a panoramic view of Michaelangelo’s masterpieces, you will leave under the impression that seduction was invented in Florence.




A horse ride for two into the timeless Chianti countryside is a rural adventure filled with amore, where we can arrange for you to dine alone in the fragrant heart of a vineyard. 

Discover Tuscan delights such as grilled octopus and burrata with an exquisite private dinner in our Presidential Suite. Against a backdrop of views over Brunelleschi’s stunning Cupola and Giotto’s Campanile, raise a glass with our very own Secret Romantic Cocktail and give your loved one a bespoke gift of a Pucci foulard, handmade by master craftsman. Memories will be made to sigh over for a lifetime. 


The best of Tuscan romance is right on your doorstep when you stay with us at Hotel Savoy. Get in touch on reservations.savoy@roccofortehotels.com or call +39 06 32 888 930, or better still, book our romantic celebration experience for a truly unforgettable visit.
