Jewish Wedding Ceremony
Celebrate your Jewish wedding in the stunning synagogue of Florence, surrounded by masterpieces of art and architecture. It is the largest temple in Italy and certainly one of the city’s amazing treasures with its large green dome and Moorish style, built between 1874 and 1882. Weddings are led by Rabbi Joseph Levi, the head of the Jewish community of Florence. Traditionally linked to the Jewish community, the city of Lorenzo de’ Medici and Michelangelo is an ideal setting for your wedding yet for another reason: the unparalleled hospitality of the Lungarno Collection.
A wide range of choices awaits you to celebrate your most beautiful day in style. The fine dining Borgo San Jacopo restaurant, in the heart of the Lungarno Hotel, offers spectacular views of Ponte Vecchio and is ideal for an elegant wedding reception. For an intimate and contemporary alternative, the Library and the Sala Cha await with culinary delights from the East at the Gallery Hotel Art. For a stylish cocktail, opt for the mezzanine of the Continentale Hotel with its unique personality, contemporary design and homage to fashion of the 50’s. During summer time, a reception on the stunning sky lounge terrace "La Terrazza" on top of the medieval tower is unbeatable with 360° views of Florence, including Brunelleschi's Dome, Palazzo Vecchio, Giotto's bell tower, Ponte Vecchio, and Palazzo Pitti. Your guests will admire the truly spectacular frescoed halls of the Palazzo Capponi, a historical residence on the river Arno and a masterpiece of Renaissance times.
Only a few minutes from the center of Florence, beautifully nestled into the Chianti hills and in the heart of the Tuscan countryside, the elegant Villa Le Rose promises days of indulgence and romance in neoclassical style. As the pearl of the Lungarno Collection, the villa is perfectly suited for a wedding ceremony celebrated by the head of the Jewish community of Florence, followed by a romantic reception in the thirteen-acre traditional park, surrounded by fragrant roses, olive groves, cypress, citrus, and lavender trees.
The Lungarno Collection prides itself on haute cuisine. At your disposal are Peter Brunel, awarded chef of the Restaurant Borgo San Jacopo in Florence, renown for combining Tuscan and Italian traditions with a touch of modernity and personality, and the chefs of The Fusion Bar & Restaurant of the Gallery Hotel Art, melding flavors of East and West.
