What better place to spend the most important day of your life than Florence, the backdrop for the most romantic and passionate love stories of all times?

A fairy-tale wedding in the heart of Florence

What better place to spend the most important day of your life than Florence, the backdrop for the most romantic and passionate love stories of all times?

So why not make the Relais Santa Croce, a beautiful 18th century Palazzo a short hop from the Santa Croce Basilica and Palazzo Vecchio, your home for the day? Distinctive settings, original frescoes and an attentive, personalised service will make your special day truly unique.

For private events and special occasions to celebrate with family and friends, the Relais Santa Croce can be adapted to suit your requirements and has all the charm of a noble 18th century Palazzo. With its stunning 360° frescoes and a convivial fire in an antique fireplace, the Sala della Musica comfortably accommodates up to 80 guests for lunch or a sit-down dinner, or up to 150 for a buffet cocktail party. For those who prefer a private family gathering, the room can include an elegant imperial dining table with settings for 30, or opt for the intimacy of the Guelfi & Ghibellini restaurant, that proposes a Mediterranean cuisine with a strong emphasis on Tuscan flavours; a perfect way to experience traditional local specialities and contemporary variations.

Relais Santa Croce

Relais Santa Croce offers a range of individual services on request to make every moment of your wedding celebrations magical: a wedding coordinator, elegant flower arrangements, musical entertainment, photography and video services, a private wine tasting and a chauffeur-driven car for the bride and groom, for example. And for the wedding night, the most beautiful Relais Santa Croce suites, like the 260 sqm Santa Croce Royal Suite, one of the most impressive and spacious in the city with frescoed ceilings, antique furniture and a sumptuous room to welcome guests, will provide the most memorable and romantic end to your perfect day as you are pampered by our attentive staff.

You can also rent the Palace exclusively, whereby our team will be on hand to serve you and your guests from the moment of arrival and for the duration of your stay. Relax in front of the fireplace or enjoy exclusive city tours and excursions of the Tuscan countryside perfectly curated to make your event unforgettable!

Relais Santa Croce

Situated on the magnificent first floor, the Sala della Musica is a majestic ballroom with a stately ambience that can host up to 150 guests. An imposing fireplace, high frescoed ceilings and large windows that bathe the room in natural light create an all-embracing feeling of grandeur and a timeless, magical setting.

A stunning 3-metre crystal chandelier was suspended from the ceiling by wooden trusses based on a Leonardo da Vinci design that is still visible today. The Sala della Musica is the perfect venue for meetings, corporate events, press conferences, theatrical performances and private concerts.
