We were in Italy for another wedding, but decided to stage this Venice Italy elopement while we had some free time. It’s impossible to visit Venice and not get caught up in the romance of the city. Up at dawn, exploring the canals before the crowds gathered. Enjoy this little bit of inspiration for those considering an elopement in one of Italy’s most magical places.
While there are a lot of tourists in this world famous town, its a matter of picking the right time of day, and you seemingly have the whole city to yourself. We started our stroll in Piazza San Marco, which was near our hotel. From there, we meandered around the narrow alleyways and canals. The morning shopkeepers and cafes were just setting up, and while you could hear the rumbling of the day starting, it was quietly romantic all around.
There are so many places in Europe where you could elope – check out our bucket list here – but Italy is still one of our favourites. The city was made for romance. The architecture, the food, and the way of life is enough for anyone to get caught up and swept away.
