Michael and I have been together since 2010 and are now ready to make it official (!!). We want to have a symbolic ceremony in Tuscany, just the two of us. We will be arriving in the Florence area on 21 Sep 2022 (coming from Rome via train) and leaving for Venice on 26 Sep 2022 (also via train). Do you have any availability during that time for what we are looking for?
Thank you so much for your help!
