Italy’s capital and largest city is a living monument to some of the greatest artistic triumphs of humankind. Hand-marbled fountains, jaw-dropping cathedrals, and some of the world’s most ambitious architectural masterpieces rest like an open air museum under the hot and bright Italian sun. Whether you’ve dreamt of setting your eyes on one of Michelangelo’s sculptures or throwing a good luck coin into the Trevi Fountain, Rome is truly a work of art. Aside from its historic beauty, Rome is a foodie’s dream, so leave plenty of time for handmade pasta and house wine in one of the bustling piazzas.
To marry in Italy, couples must provide birth certificates, passports, and a notarized “certificate of non-impediment.” Divorce and death decrees (which must be valid for 300 days) are also required if applicable. For additional information, check with your Certified Destination Wedding Specialist.

Activities & Tourist Attractions
The difficulty and beauty in Rome is that the ‘must-sees’ likely outnumber a single visit to the city, with nearly endless museums, galleries, churches, and historic ruins worth visiting. Of course, the Coliseum, Pantheon, Vatican, Spanish Steps, Sistine Chapel and Trevi Fountain are iconic gems documenting the city’s famous artistic and religious pursuits. Aside from sightseeing, Rome is filled with beautiful cobblestone plazas (like Piazza Navona) lined with cozy cafes for a hearty meal after a day on your feet. Rome’s endless boutiques are also filled with sumptuous Italian goods, so shopping is a must.
